A Chinese 10 inch...here we see a lovely scene with tropical beach goers enjoying the local animal life, namely kangaroos. As I'm typing this I've just realized that the wrong record is in the sleeve as the back of the sleeves says it's from Ring Ring Records...and the LP label says Four Seas Records. That explains things. I've often wondered why THIS would have been the selected record artwork for an LP of Christmas carols performed and sung in Chinese style.


And we end our look at 10-inchers with a couple of hot Frenxh releases both by L'Hawai-Club De Paris (featuring steel guitarist Marchel Bianchi again). Is this great cover art or what??

Kaiwaza - that's some of the best album-cover artwork ever. Of all of those, I've only seen the King's Serenade before. Thanks for posting this eye-candy.

All from one estate sale over the weekend.

This guy had great taste in music and kept the vinyl in mint condition. It's a pleasure to listen to these records in such clean condition with great depth of sound.

Hey Kaiwaza - many returning thanks for the incredible cover art many of us mainlanders will likely never see! Awesome stuff! (Even when my face turns the background color of TC when looking at 'em - INCLUDING the tapa pattern - with envy!)


Oh, and a while back I mentioned not getting a Korla Pandit LP from a local record shop... well, I buckled & went 'n bought it -

The Universal Language of Music Volume One from 1954


- and the signature on the all-blank back cover -



And a nice find, at much less cost than the Korla @ .75 - signed by Genoa herself -

Whoa PTD, you are fearless! "Melveen, the Hawaiian Country Girl?" "The Banjo Barons"? "You Don't Need a Mind Just Soul" !?
And I would love to hear all those Beatles covers by the Waikikis!

The Waikikis ruled the universe. Their Christmas album is to die for.

Bigbro-

I have the Waikikis LP with the Beatles covers too.

I can forward it to you for your listening pleasure if you happen to have a turntable handy.

bigbro,

I seem to be buying records at a pace quicker than I can listen to them. Those I happened to purchase from a guy who bought out an old place called "Records" that used to be on the K Street Mall in Sacramento. He ended up buying approximately 80,000 albums when the owner died. He came over on Friday night with the first box of approximately 80 Exotica and Hawaiian albums, the ones I posted were the ones I didn't already have. He had quite a few Lyman, Denny and Baxter records, I had all but the ones I posted and more Hawaiian. He is still in the process of going through and pulling more out as he comes across them. My favorites of the bunch were the New Orleans Jazz Band of Hawaii and the The Surfers Live and Well at Hop Louie's Latitude 20! The guy cut me a pretty good deal, so I will continue to buy from him as he comes across this stuff.

PTD

Moving into some "exotica" lps nows, again, I'm going to try & just stick with either lps that seems pretty rare or interesting in some other way.

It wasn't too long ago that I first saw a dvd release of the film "Mondo Cane" & became interested in all the follow-up "cash-in" films that were made after it. I saw this budget label lp (Viking) and was interested in the title "Theme From Mondo Cane & Other Horror Music" by "Ugella & Viking Pops Orchestra." I mean, I didn't consider "Mondo Cane" a HORROR film and the theme (More) is actually quite popular & beautiful. So, what the heck would this recording be...?
Well, it's an orchestral version of "More" followed by seven tracks by CHAINO. Yeah, it's definitely Chaino tracks lifted from other lps. Fascinating.




I'm not exactly sure why I enjoy this record so much. Pictured on the cover is NOT a model, but the songstress featured, Diane Adrian. Darn...I forgot to snap the back cover...I'll add it later as it has GREAT shots of her hamming it up in "native garb." It says Diane has toured the Caribbean many times and collected the material heard in this album. She sings in a combination of English, French or patois or something...with a full Western orchestra with added percussion. There's something very intriguing about listening to a semi-operatic singer "going native" with her renditions of supposedly actual voodoo chants. You go, Diane!






I imagine many of us have at least ONE copy of this LP in our collections. WE know about the Luke Leilani budget LPs..well, this is the budget label "exotica" recording of drumming & African/Haitian/Whatever voodoo vocals that was reissued under a hundred different names & titles. I do love when it was released as "Tahitian Percussion" because it CLEARLY isn't...but I find this jacket to be fetching & I honestly have seldom seen it around the thrift or record shops.
Imean, one is always stumbling across blondes in the jungle, right?
