komohana, nice scores! I just bought vol. II of the Hawaii Calls instrumentals last week on iTunes - but vinyl is ever so much cooler. Jules Ah See AND Barney Isaacs on steel apparently (had to throw in mandatory steel factoid).

bigbrotiki, I think the relevance of the socksoff disc is the "Pott Farmer" bit - some Hawaiian guy who grows pakalolo financed it. Just a guess.

This weekends finds.



I've been looking for this for awhile, and not only is it like new but it was cheap!



Al Kealoha Perry and his singing surfriders


Bings Hawaiian hits vol. 3
missing one 78 and one with a chip on the lip.



I hear this is terrific, but alas, my record player has, for months been buried under the contents of the collapsed shelves of my attic.

About 2 and a half years ago I found this record jacket but containing some bad German pop (?) music compilation. But yesterday I found the disk, one side minty the other scratched, for .50 cents.



now I have the album
All but 3 of the lps were .50 cents each and were found over the last 3 weekends, the next 3 are ten inchers.




now the lps








I grabbed the South Pacific for the great cover! haven't listened to it yet but the back jacket says it's recorded with a 1 to 3 echo delay... hum.





stereo

mono





aloha, tikicoma

Those are some GREAT finds Tikicoma! That Les Baxter "Que Mango" is pretty rare & fetches quite a good price when it shows up on auction sites..I'd hang on to that one! THe Martin Denny "Enchanted Isle" is rare as well! Outside of the Denny/Lyman/Baxter LPs, I Think that Phil Moore "Polynesian Paradise" and Milt Raskin's "Exotic Percussion" are two outstanding exotica albums. I think Phil Moore is famous in MY mind for creating what is probably the only somewhat "dark" rendition of "Blue Hawaii" I've ever heard..love it.

Wow, I knew of "Tum-Tiki", but never of "Tiki" by The Mixtures. Wonder what year that is from.

Here is another rare 45:

Just found out that The Mixtures 45 is from 1963.

The Mixtures were from Ventura County, California.

Dispite a hokey Hawaiian War Chant, it's classic quality exotica, but you'd better REALLY like bird calls.

Your Ray Kinney LP, probably w/the always awesome David Kelii on steel, is the real deal.

OK , now I know that Ray Kinney was also known as Hal Aloma I was looking at all my records for the Ray Kinney album that I didn't know I owned

So now some finds from the last 3 days
first the exotic

I have a few of the other surfmen lps but this is my first one of these



now an odd one, Hawaiian Reveries with Elden Chapman on the Lowery organ. This one sounds like he's playing the organ while riding a roller coaster, in a creative attempt to make the organ sound like a steel guitar.


to the islands,






aloha, tikicoma

Whoa, tikicoma...Ray Kinney and Hal Aloma are NOT the same people. Hal Aloma may have performed WITH Ray Kinney's Orchestra at times however. But Ray Kinnney was a vocalist...an Irish-Hawaiian. Hal Aloma, a Chinese-Hawaiian, was a noted steel player & sometimes vocalist.
