Descripción del producto

Alongside Martin Denny, Les Baxter was the leading figure in the history of exotica. Where Les held the advantage, however, was his ability to predict or even influence future developments in the genre. He was the first artist to explore space in exotica, later repeating the feat with jungle and percussion. And then he returned to the space theme, at much the same time everyone was talking about the real space race between the Americans and the Soviets. Space Escapade is very much a musical exploration. Les composed and arranged all twelve tracks on display and, as a later writer would note, offered a package tour in sound, selling tickets to sedentary tourists who want to stroll around some taboo emotions before lunch, view a pagan ceremony, go wild in the sun or conjure up a demon, all without leaving home hi-fi comforts in the suburbs.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Les Baxter forever 19 de agosto de 2013

I am 63 and I've never been very keen to Les Baxter sound even so liking other contemporary musicians like David Rose and et all. But one day listening Space Capades CD, a mix of lounge and cocktail music, that kind of stuff really called my attention. So I decided to look for a sound which could be as much as that CD. It was then I found Space Escapade. All of a sudden that sound really fascinated me. It sounds so pretty and so fresh today, it shows how Les Baxter fifties' songs were ahead of time. His music captured the mood, just like a mix of science fiction and maybe the beginning of the space age we were about to see..

...and, by that title, not only do I mean that Baxter created a musical masterwork...but that the reissuers-that-be finally have excavated SPACE ESCAPADE from the Capitol vaults. A giant leap for lovers of this genre, indeed! The marvelous thing about Les Baxter is that, while the themes may be whimsical/campy/fun-loving...first, he was "in on the 'joke'" (just look at the the all-time-great cover art of "Space Escapade"); and, second, Baxter was a true virtuoso: his magnificent orchestrations -- the result of years of serious study and classical training -- are without peer. "Space Escapade" is an American classic, to be revered and cherished. Thank goodness that we have the recordings of the wonderful Les Baxter for letting us explore his, and our, musical dreamscapes.

Fantastic collection of songs by one of the giants in Exotica. All of these were written by Les. There isn't a weak song amongst the set.

If you are Les Baxter fan, or just an Exotica fan, you need this CD in your collection.

My favorites: Shooting Star; Moonscape; The City; Somewhere In Space; Earth Light; Saturday Night On Saturn. Although those are the ones I especially like, the others are right up there.

This is MONO. Would be much better in stereo. (Was this ever made in stereo?) The only notable songs are Shooting Star and possibly The City. Do not confuse this with a similar album name of Space Capades. Ultra Lounge: Space Capades, Vol. 3
