The Prettiest Girl In School - Tony Perkins

The Prettiest Girl In School
Best known of course for his indelible performance as homicidal transvestite Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho”. Working also with Orson Welles, Tony Perkins illuminated fifties America with intelligence, sensitivity, talent and sex. After the death of James Dean, Perkins inherited the crown of America’s leading teen idol and the ascendancy of his film career for a while complimented his precocious activities as a pop singer. “The Prettiest Girl in School” comprises all of Perkins’ 1956-57 singles including the hit ‘Moon-Light Swim’.

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.
