Exotic Re-ups and the Sophisticated Daydream of Exotica: Jungle Jazz (1958), African Jazz (1959)



I've re-upped everything with the label "exotic" or "exotica." Have a look through, if you haven't already.

To better consecrate the return of these albums, I'm also re-posting these two Baxter records. In an old post, I showered these both pretty qualified praise-- a critical oversight I've since come to regret. These are amazing Exotica artifacts, and positively phenomenal records. When it comes to Baxter, it's all about Tamboo!, Ritual of the Savage, and Caribbean Moonlight-- but these two are just barely behind. So damn great.

Jungle Jazz
(128, please let me know if you have a tip on an upgrade-- this one sounds pretty good though)
African Jazz (320)

ah! thanks a million for putting in the effort to undo the idiot hand of the demonic web-censors. it's such an absurd shame that they are pulling blogs who post largely out of print issues... anyway, speaking of out of print and issues as such, taboo! and ritual of the savage aren't really available on the line anywhere i've checked... anywhere to hear um?

Michael said...

oops-- edit: ritual of the savage is indeed afloat in the aether.. taboo!, however, sadly, is not

Michael said...

ach... sorry i haven't yet had my coffee today-- it's tamboo, not taboo. i couldn't weed through all the sickening porno queries when i was looking for the album i thought had a name different from its actual one. you can delete these comments, sorry about that. found all the material, however low kbps

Does anyone know if there is an African Jazz is floating around in Stereo or Tamboo! in Duophonic?
I've been looking hard but can't seem to find them

Let's make a deal Kaz: if one turns up, whichever of us finds it will tip the other off. I've been looking, so far to no avail
