Les Baxter on Amazon

Mr Lopez has advised me that Amazon are releasing a lot of classic Baxter albums in mp3 format today (15 June 2010). They will be in 256kps quality which isn't great but should suffice. I've listened to the 128kps samples and they don't seem to be in better quality than my CDrips. The quality may be more noticeable if you compare to a LP rip.

The mini album above looks interesting as I haven't seen that before. It seems to have previously released tracks however.

Anyway a cheap way to legally stock up on any Baxter you don't have. Link

PS: see the sidebar for a 1982 Baxter soundtrack that's been added "The Beast Within".
