Ahh, just the Tahitian side of the collection, but it's a big love nevertheless. I'm not just in it for the covers...I do love the music on ALL of these.
Apologies for the crappy photography.

Too bad the virtual record player was taken down.. I have a huge collection myself, but I am official jealous of an apparent budget label LP you have I have never seen before..."Hawaiian Shores"...I assume it's just a recombination of the "Luke Leilani, etc." studio recordings, but I love the jacket & have never seen that particular LP before.. Great site.

A couple of interesting finds from a recent "Friends Of The Library" sale over Marting Luther King Jr. weekend.

Jack De Mello was a composer/orch. conductor who is well-known in Hawaii for taking Hawaiian music and recording highly orchestrated, kind of symphonic arrangements. He recorded several boxed sets featuring various periods of Hawaiian music, used orchestra/chorus recorded in England, with a few well known Hawaiian singers, mainly Emma Veary & Nina Kealiiwahamana. His recording always elicit a split reaction here...some people loved them, some people thought they lost all their "Hawaiianess" and become more like an Elmer Berstein soundtrack.
For some reason, in 1979, he travelled to Guam, studied the music, and recorded a 2 LP set of "Charmorro" songs set in the same symphonic arrangements he comimtted the Hawaiian songs to. However, this one must have been a major flop or was only sold on Guam, because until a year or so ago, I had no idea it even existed. Anyway, it comes with nice color booklet with lyrics (the LP is instrumental) and some pics. Best thing..I got it for $1.00.




Then, just a couple of "ethnic" Viking releases from Melanesia (Bamboo Bands) and The Solomon Islands.




I'd LOVE to have this aloha shirt...with Guadalcanal and other Melanesian islands on it...


It was a rather amazing "music centered" sale. There were (and I'm not lying) 1,000s upon 1,000s on LPs..at least 10,000-15,000. TONS of what is common Hawaiian here, but probably not where YOU are.. They 2nd day everything was $1.00. The final day they were $10 for a huge cardboard box (the big kind that hold about 80-90 LPs)...I bought all my Hawaiian stuff on $1.00 day, and went back on $10 a box day for a box full of old Latin, Percussion, & interesting Lounge/Easy stuff...it was AMAZING to say the least.

Recently purchased a VERY wonderful & strange LP..from 1968, Nick Nicholson & The Neketini Brass...playing Native Maori (New Zealand) songs after the fashion of Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. I've always enjoyed the "tijuana" sound & all the cash-in groups that put out LPs in that style..and I do have Jack De Mello's Waikiki Brass, but I've never even HEARD of the Neketini Brass record and it's actually very well done..ole.

That Audition label "South Pacific" is one HOT cover. I have that photo in travel book and I've only seen the LP once or twice. Don't want to pay much for it as the LP is just a cheapo cash-in of the South Pafic musical numbers and I have azillion of those, but that's the BEST jeacket! I keep hoping it shows up for cheap at Goodwill or something one day..maybe..

I think that Tiki on the South Pacific cover was also used in a promo shot of Martin Denny and the band on the back of one of their album covers. Exotica vol.3 maybe? I'll check when I get home.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

At some point I am going to sell of my record collection...simply put, I have accumulated way too many and am in need of a purge. Aside from some Denny, Lyman and Baxter and a few others (my "White Goddess" album) I will be downsizing, so keep that in mind if there was anything you have seen you are interested in.

Thanks,

PTD

Hey PTD,

Does this Polynesia album say where the cover was shot? Looks like a possible tiki bar like The Tikis.
