Exotica
As part of our ongoing series of reappraised, remastered and INTENSIFIED releases of music from the 1950's and before, here we hit the daddy of them all, Martin Denny, with his first two groundbreaking, international hit albums - both in their original MONO as well as their SPECTRASONIC STEREO SOUND versions, in which the band went back into the studio to revisit their two hit albums two years later to satisfy the then brand new market for spectacular stereo! Featuring the hit anthem of ‘Exotica’, "Quiet Village" and a whole load of other wonderful tracks to chill out to, pour the cocktails and dim the lights... for Martin Denny!

Original Quiet Village
•    The most innovative, enduring and influential of all the artists associated with the exotica genre, Les Baxter is the bridge between the classical exoticism of Ravel and Debussy and the modern post-war exotica of the late '50s, early '60s, that  he pioneered and which has undergone such an exhaustive process of re-birth and fresh consideration over the past 25 years.

•    While It frustrated Baxter that he was unable to transcend the B movie ghetto and be taken more seriously by Hollywood, he insisted that his work was worthy of the concert stage.  The expert, often quite brilliantly evocative arrangements that underpin masterpieces from Quiet Village to Ritual of The Savage, from The Sacred Idol to Jewels of The Sea attest to the fact that Baxter certainly possessed the requisite musical vocabulary.

•    Our edition combines the fine retrospective Original Quiet Village with Baxter's last statement of pure undiluted exotica, The Primitive and the Passionate. Both albums are full of marvelous Baxterisms of excitement, sensuality and ghostly impressionism.

NB: This title is released July 21 and will not be dispatched before this date.
