Les Baxter’s Space Escapde on CD

Les Baxter‘s classic Space Escapade album from 1958 has finally been given a legitimate CD release.

Les Baxter - Space Escapade

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.

The US release date is May 19, 2009, but the album is already available in other parts of the world.
