A pre-exotica relic – cut just a year or two before bachelor pad music really broke big, and a very important album in helping get the whole thing started! The record's got a more serious feel than you might think – as pop classical conductor Morton Gould put together this mix of traditional, classical, and jazz compositions to create a suite of tropical sounds based around the compositions of Ernesto Lecuona. As the title would imply, the album's got a lot of percussion – mixed with the larger orchestrations that Gould normally used in his work – and titles include "Danza Lucumi", "Swamp Fire", "Batuque", "Ritual Fire Dance", "Jungle Drums", and "Gitanerias". (Red Seal pressing. Cover has a small sticker, a bit of marker on front, and a cut corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Quite possibly our favorite Esquivel album ever – a tremendous little session that was recorded for RCA's Stereo Action series – with incredible sound that leaps back and forth between each speaker! The notes describe the record as having a "block long sound" – given ... LP, Vinyl record album

Divine Hair Mass In F
Revelation/RCA, 1971. Sealed Gatefold
A very very weird version of "Hair", rewritten as a mass, and performed in a church by the original cast, plus a priest, organist, and everything else that you might throw in if you were going to do it this way.

Bug-In
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
An incredibly groovy set of funky studio tracks – written as a "bug-in" celebration for the dune buggy scene in late 60s California – and headed up by Shorty Rogers and Kelly Gordon!
