Les Baxter The Sounds of Adventure Capitol Records 1965 ...

Les Baxter needs no introduction and in this release he's at his atmospheric best. Each track on this double vinyl sounds like a movie soundtrack from days of old.

Its not all exotica by any stretch but its a great album which more than holds its own. My personal picks are "Blue Jungle", "Bustin the Bongos" (I which it sounds like the player is doing just that!) and will I ever tire of "Quiet Village?"

Enjoy The Sounds of Adventure.
