Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1958 album from 'the founding father of Exotica'. Space Escapade (not re-issued or digitalized in the half century since it's original release) is the holy grail to Baxterites and students of the Exotica genre; showcasing all of the eclecticism and sensual orchestral effects that are Baxter's remarkable trademark. The historic restoration of Space Escapade is complimented by an attractive special feature; a program of extremely rare Les Baxter single A & B sides from the '50s; sweet and subtle gems never before re-issued in any context and digitalized here for the first time. El. 2009.
