Les Baxter's Balladeers, on the other hand, goes in a completely different direction: instead of exploring and borrowing from the music of exotic cultures, on this 1963 album Baxter delves into the sounds of traditional American music in response to the era's folk music resurgence. With its simple production and the focus on the Balladeers themselves (including Phil Campos, Ernie Sheldon, and Jerry Yester in this incarnation), this album feels less like a Les Baxter album than a solid collection of early-'60s folk-pop.

Artist: Les Baxter Title: The Primitive And The Passionate (Remaster) Year Of Release: 1962; 2019 Label: RevOla Genre: Jazz, Easy Listening, Space-Age, Big Band, Cool Jazz Quality: MP3 320 kbps; 16-bit/44. 1kHz FLAC; 24-bit/44. Another in Collectables' series of Les Baxter two-fers, The Primitive and the Passionate/Les Baxter's Balladeers collects a pair of the early-'60s albums.

In addition to the album Original Quiet Village this CD, out now, also contains the album The Primitive & The Passionate and selections from Exotique: The Music of Les Baxter. Musically throughout this collection Baxter maintains the traditional orchestral ensemble but embellishes and builds upon this with percussion and saxophones with the occasional stab of electric organ, dulcimer, kazoo and even Theremin. In many ways it’s hard not to associate the tunes herein with the music you’d hear on a Sunday afternoon black and white film because it’s just the kind of music you would here.

Although presented as "Les Baxter's Original Quiet Village" this is not an original album, but a very good compilation covering the 1951-1960 period. The second album is "The Primitive and the Passionate", which deserved an independent release due to the high quality of its cover-art and music. Was previously released in 2005 with "Les Baxter Balladeers" in one single CD, which was a horrible decision as the two albums have few things in common.
