Artist Track Album Format Comments Images Approx. start time
Jean Pierre & His Rock Players   (We're Gonna) Teach You to Rock   Options J.P. Teaches You To Rock  MP3  The track that went missing last time, causing some confusion here in the studio. ha. "a '50's 10-inch that sounds like a big band attempting to be Bill Haley" For the life of me I could never find this actual record. It finally showed up on Youtube! 
0:00:00 (Pop‑up)
Djalma Ferreira E Seus Milionarios Do Ritmo  Lamentos   Options Drink  LP  Playing another track by Djalma Ferreira just because it’s awesome. 
0:02:51 (Pop‑up)
Various (Busby Berkley)  By a Waterfall   Options The Golden Age Of The Hollywood Musical  LP  "What I like about LES BAXTER is his overkill orchestration in the fine tradition of Carl Orff, Busby Berkley and Magma." -pg. 16

Martin Denny  Love Dance   Options Exotica  LP  A Les Baxter cover song. 
0:11:42 (Pop‑up)

Les Baxter's Balladeers  Sinner Man   Options Les Baxter's Balladeers  LP  "If Les Baxter decides to do a folk album, he won't use one person with a guitar - no, he'll use eight guitars and a banjo player plus his orchestra! Move over Kingston Trio - here comes the whole King Family!"
