The Sounds Of Adventure - Les Baxter

The Sounds Of Adventure
Les Baxter
Capitol Record Club Exclusive SQBO-90984

You'd think, this being a Les Baxter album, that I could located a date of release. But I can't so I don't know how this album works into Baxter's time line. This is a two record set with a gate-fold jacket design that smacks of a mid to late 60s (or even early 70s) issue...

This is a nice Baxter collection that holds together musically. In other words, even though the jacket notes explain that Baxter experimented with rock and roll, you will not find any of those tunes here. The songs, tend to be more "mood" or "exotic" in nature.
