Image Milestones of a Legend (10 CD)
20 Original Albums

Leslie Thompson “Les” Baxter (1922 – 1996) is best known as one of the originators of Exotica, a particular style of Easy Listening-music that o ered its listeners a lush sonic vacation in the stereophonic comfort of their own living room, a trip on record full of imaginary rituals and exciting taboos. The composer, arranger and orchestra leader from Texas, who studied piano at the Detroit conservatory, decided against a career as a concert pianist in favor of Swing, the popular music of the time. At 21 he played saxophone for the Freddie Slack big band, and also worked as a vocalist, joining Mel Tormé’s Mel-Tones two years later. Studio and soundtrack work – for Nat “King” Cole or Yma Sumac, among others – led to successful concept albums of his own orchestral suites, such as “Ritual Of The Savage”, “The Passions”, “Caribbean Moonlight”, or “Space Escapade”, all of which are among the twenty original albums in this box set. Think of “Exotica” as the “world music” of the late Fifties and early Sixties – then sit back, relax, and enjoy the “sophisticated naïveté” of these inventively and dramatically arranged and produced scores for the movie in your mind.

Harold George Belafonte was born in New York (U.S.A.) in 1927. His parents came from the Caribbean.

After several years Harry returned to New York, just before he turned eighteen.Belafonte opened a club in Greenwich Village with several of his friends, now performing as a singer in his own club. In 1954 the young entertainer landed a minor role in a film - and made a lasting impression on audiences.

His greatest hit was the "Banana Boat Song" and soon jukeboxes all over the world rang out loud and clear with that unique Daaaay-ooooo, Daaay-ay-ay-ooo, daylight come and we want to go home. This was the birth of the calypso boom and Belafonte made the charts eight times in 1956 and 1957.

Image Henry Mancini - 16 Original Albums
Music for film and television was Henry Mancini‘s trademark: „Peter Gunn“, „High Time“, „Mister Lucky“, „Breakfast at Tiffany‘s“ and several other of his soundtracks are included in this lovingly compiled 10 CD box, of course. Important, beautifully produced and arranged album masterpieces
all, which include hits like „Peter Gunn Theme“ and „Moon River“.
Mancini had a recognizable personal style, which dazzled with great ease and clarity, and a surprising simplicity. The composer and arranger himself was inspired by the rhythm of swing, the harmonies of jazz, by Latin music, as well as the music of French impressionists like Ravel or Debussy. His sense of tonal nuances and extraordinary instrumentation, and a talent for elegant melodic lines, made the son of Italian immigrants one of the world’s outstanding film-music composers.

Georges Brassens was one of the absolute greats of French
chanson. In his cheeky, provocative texts, witty and clever alike,
he could perfectly combine poetic language with that of the
people. Through his songs Brassens, respected in equal measure
as author, poet and musician, has become part of the French
cultural heritage.
These 6 albums, from the years 1952-1958, which made him one
of the most popular representatives of the artistic French chanson
– Le Vent, La Mauvaise Reputation, Les Sabots d’Hélène, Georges
Brassens et sa guitare No. 4 and No. 5 and Le Pornographe –
include some of his best-loved numbers, chansons drawn from
life such as La Cane de Jeanne, Brave Margot, Chanson pour
l’Auvergnat and Pauvre Martin.

The great tradition of Poésie chantée goes back as far as the middle
ages and is a very special and particularly French phenomenon.
One of its most important protagonists is Léo Ferré, the poet of
the revolutionary chanson. Many of his famous contemporaries
have given legendary interpretations of his songs; Juliette Greco‘s
Jolie Môme, for instance, or Edith Piaf‘s Les amants de Paris. The
singer, composer, passionate provocant and wordsmith is one of
the most important francophone poets of the 20th century and
has made decisive contributions to the “sung history” of France
through his translations and settings of verse by renowned
French lyricists such as Villon, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Apollinaire and
Aragon. These 6 original albums from the years 1953 to 1961
– Paris Canaille, Chansons de Léo Ferré, Le Guinche, Encore
du Léo Ferré, Les Chansons d’Aragon Chantées par Léo Ferré
and Récital Léo Ferré à L’Alhambra – demonstrate Léo Ferré’s
musical versatility. Alongside the typical instruments for song
accompaniment such as guitar and piano, Ferré works with the
Orchestre Jean Faustin and also uses a broad spectrum and
combination of instruments that include harpsichord, accordion,
organ, saxophone and double bass.

Among the 72 titles on these three CDs are many that became world hits, such as "C'est Si Bon", "Love for Sale" and "Mack the Knife". A characteristic of all these songs is Eartha Kitt's husky voice that brought her numerous awards. But she also made a name for herself as a dancer and actress, in among other roles as "Catwoman" playing alongside Batman. The circumstances of her early childhood have never been unambiguously divulged. She always played the irresistible vamp and was an international figure on the night-club stage. Eartha Kitt vehemently declared her political views: in the 1960s she made headlines with her criticism of the Vietnam war, which did little to further her career in the USA. The artist succumbed to cancer in 2004 at the age of 81. Six of her LPs from the years 1954-62 show the versatility of this powerwoman of jazz and soul.

There must be something special and maybe even magical about French chanson, as most of the (all female) artists in this collection enjoyed and enjoy a long life - many of those born in the 1910s and 1920s are still alive and healthy today. In recordings from 1930 until 1959 they sing an endless homage to love, life and art. They also sing of "tristesse", loneliness and the many small thing of everyday life, which retain an inimitable charm in the French chanson. The Paris of the Twenties to Fifties is the main focus here, its glamorous locations like the Folies Bergères, the Moulin Rouge, Olympia, Saint- Germain des Près and the Montmartre. And there are a few men singing and playing with these "Reines de la Chanson", among them Georges Brassens, Django Reinhardt, Tino Rossi or the Orchestre Raymond Legrand.

- ten original LPs that brought Bert Kaempfert world fame as a bandleader
- 23 successful singles as bonus tracks
- sought-after rarities such as the LP published under the pseudonym "Raimondo and the Memory Strings"

There must surely be very few Germans who could not instantly hum at least one of the songs in this box. The bandleader Berthold Heinrich Kampfert had numerous world-wide hits that softly flatter the ear and tend to stick in the head. "Strangers in the night" is no doubt the most obvious example, but Bert Kaempfert (as he appears on his records) composed and arranged not only for Frank Sinatra.

He discovered in Hamburg the then unknown Beatles, was Freddy Quinn's producer and helped stars such as Al Martino, Nat King Cole and Dean Martin achieve great hits.

This box consists of the instrumental albums with well-known melodies such as "A swingin' safari" and "Wonderland by Night", but also much sought-after rarities that Kaempfert brought out in the early 1960s under the pseudonym"Raimondo and the Memory Strings".

In addition there are about two dozen bonus tracks that to hear again will brighten up the dullest day. Several hundred of his own compositions has left behind this recipient of many awards who died on the island of Mallorca in 1980 at the early age of 56. In 1993 he was afforded the greatest honour a composer can receive, namely the posthumous inclusion in the American "Songwriters' Hall of Fame".

Kaempfert's melodies with their dominant bass figures and hovering mixture of choir and strings are timeless. This box with its softly swinging songs lets us journey into a musical wonderland in which we can dream for a while and ignore the hectic pace of daily life.
