  • Description

    180g high-definition premium vinyl pressing for super fidelity, the complete original album + 2 bonus tracks. Presented here is one of his most iconic albums, and the most sought after among collectors: Space Escapade is the holy grail to Baxterites and students of the Exotica genre. It showcases all the eclecticism and sensual orchestral effects that are Baxter's remarkable trademarks.

    Its artwork is also considered a classic Space Age Pop cover; a colourful and humorous shot of astronauts and space women enjoying friendly banter at a lively space cocktail party!

    This reissue is supplemented with four bonus tracks corresponding to a selection of Les Baxter's hit singles that charted on the Billboard Top 10, including two of his best-selling number one hits: "The Poor People of Paris" and "Unchained Melody".
