"This Les Baxter title has some great music on it, but by the time this was released it it obvious he was not given the budget he deseved and loved. Still, he made good use of the tiny "orchestra" and while it is not my favorite, I still enjoy it. Les Baxter helped to create numerous musical styles with subtle influences on music (from the early use of the theremin on his arrangements on "Music Out Of The Moon" to the epic works such as "Ritual Of The Savage"). Before the Beatles, Les Baxter had a very successful decade with Capitol Records! I remember hearing the number one hit "The Poor People Of Paris" when I was only 3 years old. But I did not become familiar with the Les Baxter name until about 5 years ago. Why? I am enjoying his music as if it were new. This CD is fine but not as complex. It has a "pop" chorus on some numbers. I wish all his other material would be released--including all of his soundtracks."
