I think it's safe to assume that nearly ALL the exotica one-offs that were made were in response to a label wanting a Baxter or Denny record.



True enough, but many of those "one-offs" end up sounding quite original and interesting, whereas this album seems a little more derivative to me. That's said, Jeff's description is better than mine. I'm looking forward to hearing it more after reading his report.

With regards to Warren Barker is In, Quince and I picked that up also on that same road trip to Toledo. What are the chances? As others have said, it's a great crime jazz/ beatnik kinda thing. The double burn with Sunset strip is a good idea. Hmmmmm....

Thanks Digitiki, great stuff, much appreciated. Funny, a lot of the tracks remind me of the Suzy Wong soundtrack.

BTW, sparkling cut! What software/system do you use? I have an early 50's album of Hawaiian instrumental music for slide nights that is proving a challenge for my Audio Cleaning Lab.

This is a wonderful thing you've done, DT! Many thanks for sharing your *exquisite* transfer, it's a real prize for the archives. As a longtime soundtrack collector, the cinematic feel of this "lost" exotica LP's splendid orchestrations is especially appreciated.

A mighty Mahalo Nui Nui!

Vonratnick,
I have a small project recording studio, so I use Digital Performer as the recording software and run it through Waves' Restoration Bundle software. That is THE best thing I've found for cleaning audio. And best of all, it doesn't color the sound, well at least very very little. Sometimes it doesn't remove all of the pops and clicks, so I go in and remove them by hand.

But I must say, this LP trasfer was pretty clean to begin with. The bells are amazingly crisp.
