Baxter, Les / 101 Strings - Que Mango! Que Mango!
Pop New - LP S 5204 Alshire
Sealed 1970 Stereo Original With The Original Store Price Sticker On Shrink. “Technically The Last Of Les Baxter’s Albums (And The Last Real Exotica Album, As Some Have Said), “Que Mango” (Done With The Help Of 101 Strings) Is A 30-Minute “Virtual Tour” Through The Sunny Skies, Beaches And Romance Of South America, And One That Will Leave Many A Buff Of The Style Satisfied, Though Perhaps In A Different Way Than They’re Used To. People Often Insist That An Artist’s Later Work Is Inferior To Their Earlier Material, Such As A Kind Of “Running Out Of Ideas” Phenomenon That Actually Is Fairly Common. After I Had Listened To This Album All The Way Through, It Was Pretty Obvious To Me That This Is Not Quintessential Les, Per Se. This Album Is, However, Quite Distinguishable In Essence From Every Album He Had Released Prior. For One Thing, The Songs On This Album Are Simpler, Lighter, Shorter And More Digestible Than Most Of His Other Repertoire. There’s Also Something Different About The Undertones On This Release That Really Stand Out To Me. “Que Mango” Feels Like It Has A Distinctly Jet-Set Vibe. While This May Only Be Different From The Typical Exotica Sound In Subtle Ways, It Nonetheless Shines Through On All Twelve Tracks.“ – Weirdo Music... more details
