Percussion In Hollywood, Broadway, Television

LP (Item 931020) Warwick, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Stereo pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

World Of Percussion
Warwick, Early 60s. Very Good
A pretty darn nice record, and one that's trying for sort of an Esquivel singing strings approach – with orchestrations that begin in a fairly standard mode, then swing out with these wild riffs on the string section that kind of get you in the gut and make the hair on your neck stand up! ...

RCA, 1960. Near Mint-
One of the maestro's greatest! From the instruments spiraling off to infinity on the cover, to the tracks played in the unique crazy Esquivel "wah wah" style, the album stands as one of the finest examples of (and obstacle courses for) modern high fidelity – a really dynamic set of ...

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of Martin Denny's greatest albums – thanks to some extra special added elements! For the record, Denny's classic quartet is augmented by a wealth of odd added percussion – including gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, and "chromatic bamboo"! All of these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Les Baxter still pretty much in his older sweeter mode – recorded slightly before the exotica years, but in a manner that still shows him as a very capable arranger and conductor. Titles include "Atlantis", "Tropicana", "Julie", "Cornflakes", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album

This is a great one recorded during the years when the US music industry clamped down on the type of pirating that some labels were doing – and imprints like Pickwick hid out in the "soundalike" business of recording big hits by other stars, using unknown studio groups who were ...
