A must have 2-CD set for any exotica collection.  Released as part of the Ultra-Lounge series, this set of Baxter exotica contains exceptionally good liner notes and beautiful cover artwork.  When it was originally released, very little Baxter was available on CD.  Time has caught up though and most of the albums that are borrowed from here, are now available on CD or as download.  CDs are out of print and command good $$.  However, the collection has been released as a digital download, so you can have it for less than the cost of buying the CD's from collectors.
