Les Baxter is Thinking of You

Les Baxter is Thinking of You

As promised here is my first of (hopefully) many more vinyl shares. First up is a real classic by Les Baxter. Found it on a auction site here in Sweden for about $6 – what a bargain!

Although this isn’t a exotica record per se, it is still very recognizable if you have heard Les Baxter’s work before. Most of the songs on it are loungy and soft – perfect for a rainy night in front of the fire place.

02) Speak Low
03) Because of You
04) With my Eyes Wide Open I’m Dreaming
