Space Escapade - Les Baxter

Space Escapade
Released 20/04/09. The Founding-Father of Exotica, Les Baxter's wild inventiveness has made him a hero to modern artists as diverse as Jello Biafra and Beck. Exotica became a hugely popular trend from the early fifties; with the onset of international jet travel, making it possible for middle-class Americans to simulate an authentic travelogue experience in the comfort of their suburban homes, 'The Music of Les Baxter is never sad of gloomy - it is full of the adventure of life, the sounds of exotic lands and the free spirit of life close to nature'. Space Escapade (not re-issued or digitalised in the half century since it's original release) is the holy grail to Baxterites and students of the Exotica genre; showcasing all of the eclecticism and sensual orchestral effects that are Baxter's remarkable trademark. The historic restoration of Space Escapade is complimented by an attractive special feature; a programme of extremely rare Les Baxter single A & B sides from the fifties; sweet and subtle gems never before re-issued in any context and digitalised here for the first time.

The Grand Moghul Suite / The Universal Language Of Music
The most exotic and enigmatic of all of the artists of what is broadly described a the "exotica" genre, Korla Pandit's astounding early concept albums are here together restored to the catalogue for the first time in five decades. A kind of Indian Ziggy Stardust, Korla Pandit's work is taken extremely seriously and is extremely collectable amongst followers of Martin Denny, Les Baxter and Esquivel. Pandit's Wurlitzer has a strange David Lynch quality to it and has aged very well. Our Price: £9.95
