Les Baxter's Wild Guitars

Les Baxter sends exciting sounds scurrying from practically every point on the stereo stage in this spectacular album featuring guitars, along with percussion and voices. When four electric guitars are heard, two are right and two are left, their sounds blending quite evenly across the entire stage. Spanish guitars spread across the stage, too, with melody guitars centered, and one rhythm guitar to each side. Percussion instruments sound from many locations as they contribute dynamic rhythm to this stereo adventure in exotic music. – from the liner notes
