The Exotic Moods Of Les Baxter - look at this price: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=307&item=2569073915

I mean, I know it's one of the greatest and most looked for exotica CD's on the planet, but DAMN. I know it's out of print, but DAMN. There's no way in hell I'd pay that much for this CD, but there are people that will which makes it impossible for me to enjoy the music.
I'm downloading it off Kazaa...song by song. It'll take a while to grab everything but I'll get all of it. I have about 25% downloaded so far. Anyone know what the RIAA thinks about file sharing music that is no longer in print? Well, screw 'em. I want this CD and I ain't paying that many clams.

Oh, and once I have it all downloaded I'll send a copy to anyone that wants one.

Give it to 'em Juno! Free or reasonably priced music for the people! I'll take a copy!

P.S. to other readers: I do support current available artists like APE (Crazy Al), Tiki Tones, I Bella Di Wakiki, Martin Denny (Baked Alaska), etc. by buying their music at full and reasonable price. But I do enjoy freebies like the Two Zombies Later and Hukilau 2003 CD featured right here on TC.

WOW! SIXTY BUCKS?!?!?! No friggin' way in HELL anyone should pay that!

I just picked up a copy at the local used CD store here in Vegas for $14. So don't give up hope, people! Keep scouring the used CD shops & you'll find 'em!

Juno, I'd be interested in a copy, for research purposes only, of course. I'd even happily provide the data transfer media (CDs) if that would help. Of course, after my research, I'd happily destroy the copyrighted data as I would never want to offend the good folk of the RIAA, FBI, NSA, FEMA, BATF, KGB, Bilderburger Group, NFL, NCAA, Bavarian Illuminati etc etc etc. Thanks for your selfless work.

So... do a Google search and find a retailer who still has copies, for $22.99 no less and pick it up cheap!

Yikes, that is big bucks. I got this fine double CD directly from the BMG music club not too long ago. I think it was on their 10 CDs for the price of 1 promotion. It is a great CD but $60+ on ebay...come on now.

Holy Moly! Amazon.com has them from used condition ($119.00!) to new condition ($279.00!). Crazy!

The list price was originally $29.98.

though the cover rings my bells...no can DO at the price it is going for...someone NOT web savvy this is going to be a learning experience...

last night i picked up some martin denny...a CD called "Baked Alaska" and another called martin denny '90...both have there ups and downs...baked alaska is pretty crazy with the live BG noise emitting from the US soldiers posted in Alaska in 62...typical americans...LOUD! concert recordings are hit and miss but with a small group of soloists it's always exciting...especially when someone is doing CAT/BIRD CALLS!

early MD...nice...how old do his earliest recordings date? anyone know?

Had no idea it was rare, I think Mr. Fishstick got it for me for a gift years ago! It is alwasy in heavy rotation at our place - definitely my favourite CD.

$66 bucks for the Les Baxter CD is not actually that bad. I have seen it on eBay over the last couple months going for close to $100 everytime. The price will not go down either unless the fine folks at Capitol decide to reissue it, which will never happen. Get them while you can!! These recordings are ALL from the original Masters and include lots of unreleased cuts that you will NEVER find anywhere!!

Has anyone ordered one from J&R recently and received it? I was at their retail store about a month ago, but no luck. I scoured most of the record stores I could find in Manhattan while my wife took care of business, but NO luck.

Not too many decent used CD stores here in the thriving metropolis of Savannah. Not much in the way of Tiki either, but I do my best.

I got mine on ebay for $46. Worth every penny! I love that CD.
I recently bid on an assorted mystery lot of 125 CDs (not in cases) figuring even if I like only 10 I'll be okay but WOW did I make out like a bandit! Cleaning them all up and putting them into the case logic sleeves now.
So it all comes out in the wash.
