The Latin Soul Of Xavier Cugat

What can I say, those of you that are familiar with Xavier Cugat already know that this is surely to be another great find. Those who are not familiar with him are in for a treat! So far, every album I have found either myself or on line, have all been great. He goes beyond doing the music justice, he has a real great talent that should not go unnoticed in today's world and as long as blogs like this are out there, it won't. So if you like this album, don't forget to check out the other links posted on this site. Enjoy!

The Best Of Martin Denny

Here's a treasure that I found at my local record store. I did a little research and as far as I can tell, no one else has this album on their blog. The last album that I posted is also posted on Bongolong Land, I didn't realize that this album was already out there (should have done some research). I kind of want to keep it to where I can post albums that are not out there at this time. The only exception I'll make is if the album I have is in stereo and the one already posted is not. Also if there is an album that I really love and I find a cleaner copy. With that said, here is The Best of Martin Denny!!

The Fabuluos Sounds Of Les Baxter

Hope everyone had a good 4th of July. Well, I was able to get a few more albums over the weekend. Had no luck at the flea market since my guy was not there. I hope it's because that he is on vacation and not gone for good. I know for a fact that he takes a couple of weeks off during the summer. It's been about four years since I last saw him and that was at his store, which he has closed up and now only works the flea market. I'll go back up there in a few weeks and see what the situation is. Oh well, that's alright because I have a few thrift shops and one record store that have been pretty good to me so I'll just keep on checking those sources from time to time. Anyway, it took a little longer than expected due to the holiday, but here it is, The Fabulous Sounds Of Les Baxter. It's a far cry from African Jazz but is good all the same. I am keeping a list of suggestion so that when I do go out I will have new ideas on what to look for. Until then enjoy this album!

A STEREOPHONIC EXTRAVAGANZA !!

Today I have a real hot album! This by far has to be one of my favorite albums. I found this album at a local thrift shop for only fifty cents! What a bargain! When I got it home, I was pleasantly surprise when I played it. This album shouts of big brass excitement and wonderful stereophonic separation! Everything seems to come to life as soon as the stylus hits the record. If you notice, you'll see that Doc Severinsen is one of the trumpet players. I think that alone gives the listener an idea of what to expect of this album, so enjoy!
