Since the mid-'90s resurgence of easy listening or space age bachelor pad music, the majority of both original LPs and compilations by the pioneers of the genre -- Esquivel, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman, and Martin Denny -- saw a glut of reissues, both good and bad. Unfortunately, the best of those discs aren't as easy to find some ten years later as they once were, making this 2006 compilation a welcome arrival. The 19 tracks on The Best of Martin Denny's Exotica are original recordings from his late-'50s/early-'60s Liberty albums and include the hits "Exotica," the Les Baxter-penned "Quiet Village," "Hypnotique," "Jungle Drums," and "The Enchanted Isle." Also of special interest is a previously unreleased five-minute interview with Denny and heartfelt liner notes penned by his daughter Christina. This is an enjoyable sampler courtesy of Capitol's recurring Ultra Lounge series.

Dixiefrog: 35 Years of the Blues Label in 10 Albums

The Dixiefrog label was founded in Paris in 1986 by lovers of American country, folk and blues. Thirty-five years later, the label keeps on keepin’ on, with its impressive catalogue (about 450 releases) and passion intact. Dixiefrog specialises in the blues, with a largely American and French roster of loyal artists and open artistic horizons. It’s impossible to capture all the interesting Dixiefrog albums here, but these 10 are absolutely essential.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.
