Finally picked up a mint copy of this album by the Cavaliers at a garage sale this weekend. Every copy I've found in the past has horrible ring-wear that obscures the best part of the artwork - the Morgantown Tiki-Stem Champagne Saucers!






I've got that album because I love harmonica records and never noticed that before. Thanks Sabu! You have a great eye!!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Some recent finds, all from New Zealand record labels (pardon the camera angle, which was due to lighting/flash problems):







Field recordings made by James L. Anderson, the American photo journalist who wrote the book "Cannibal". Includes jungle sounds!



A selection of performances from the 1st South Pacific Arts Festival, held in Suva in May 1972.

Club Nouméa, thanks for posting that Passion Flower lp. I've never seen it before and they obviously used another photo from the same shoot as the Ferrante & Teicher "Pianos In Paradise" cover:





There's been discussion here before on whether the model they used was actually black, or another race in dark makeup, it being hard to tell with that fern and shadow obscuring her face. The Passion Flower cover finally reveals her true identity. She sure looks black to me. Although I suppose she could be Melanesian. What does everyone else think?

I think she's black, but with some Asian or South-American thrown in. The best Exotica girls were always of mixed descent:
Last night I saw Chinese-English actress Nancy Kwan at the Cinematheque - in person!

I noticed right away about that Passion Flower LP...same photo shoot as the Ferrante & Teicher LP. I would say she's black, probably Asian-Black mixed. I prever the Passion Flower pic & would love to come across that record one day.

Thanks for making that link. The back of the LP credits "Three Lions of New York" as the source of the photo. It does make you wonder how an independent record label in Auckland got its hands on that photo. Did they see "Pianos In Paradise" and contact the agency to see if they had any other photos from the same session?

The album itself is perfect tiki bar background music - ukulele and Hawaiian steel guitar accompanying songs in Cook Islands Maori. I was pleased to find it for $1.

Nice finds, Komohana. I'm curious about that "Magic Of Hawaii" LP by The Waikiki Beach Boys. I have all of their records, I THINK, but I'm wondering what the tracks from that LP are. I'm thinking it's probably the Aussie/UK version of one of the American re-issues, but I'm NOT sure..

Thanks, Komohana.....interesting....there are a few tracks on there from previous LPs, (unless they are different versions) but that's mostly a new LP...have to keep my eyes open for that!
