Now here's a new genre? -soundbite collages taken exclusively off of vintage kiddie records. The comical juxtaposition potential alone warrants a go at it.

Maybe somebody already does this?

The Bran Flakes (based now in Toronto, I believe?) do quite a bit of just that:

Much fun they are.

I used some Babar action taken off kiddierecords.com:
http://fairtilizer.com/track/63656
and after WFMU played it a couple of days ago I heard from a New York museum curater who put together a Babar exhibit last year, and she's sending the song off to the old French guy (the son of Babar's creator) who wrote some of the Babar books!

La Verandah had somehow thought tiki was a subset of exotica, which in turn she presumed was related to lounge. One never knows, does one?

But this is coming from a woman working up a raqs sharqi routine to that lovely vintage Latin-flavored lounge song known as "Sway."

I have always thought of Exotica as a subset of lounge.

Very intresting reading...

I grew up listening to Lounge/"Rat Pack" from my mom. Surf,Jazz/Exotica,Rock-a-Billy style from my dad
Then spent my 20's with Surf/Punk & Reggae and got sucked in to the Buffett as a SCUBA Inst. but still was listening to what I grew up hearing.
My friends thought I was very strange.
At some point in my early 30's I started to dig the "Latin/Cuban Sound" that Bossa/Mambo/Cugat stuff from the Ricky Ricardo pre Bay of Pigs days.

Now that I'm pushin 50 I am really liking Koop's Cocktail Nation, The Bachelor Pad, Buddies Lounge and of course The Quiet Village pod casts.
I listen to them at work where most of the folks are into hippy/jamgrass bands and get lots of strange looks... at least the owner of the store likes jazz.

But as much as I still dig the Surf/Rock-a-Billy to me it's just a little to high enegry even the first wave of surf...for my Basment Bar when the lights are dimmed.

Exotica is more a subset of orchestral music than anything. Les Baxter recorded the first Exotica album Ritual of the Savage in 52 (?) that contained his song Quiet Village. Martin Denny recorded it a few years later arranged for a small group to play. It was when he re-recorded it around 1959 in stereo that it really caught fire. The people of Hawaii dug it, and soon the whole nation was digging it, so it really didn't branch off of anything but itself

I totally disagree. Most bands and artists that played the original Exotica of the 1950's and early 60's were from the jazz-pop or easy listenting world.. What we now call "lounge". Les Baxter was really one of the few artists of this genre that used a large orchestra. The rest were small combos. Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Cal Tjader, etc..though some of these artist's piano stylings were influenced by Debussy or Ravel, I would hardly consider exotica to be a subset of orchestral music.

Well Les Baxter was orchestral, and he recorded the first Exotica album so...keep in mind that small group jazz as well as bands like Denny's really took off in the late 50's into the early 60's. By this time Ritual of the Savage was already 10 years old.

All Exotica is a form of popular music. Classical/orchestral music is not. That's the crucial difference. For example, just because led Zepellin had a orchestra on the song "kashmir" does not make them classical/orchestral.And PS, I am well aware of the time frame involving lounge music, jazz, exotica.

I think your missing my point, I'm not saying Exotica is Orchestral in nature, I was pointing out that Exotica sprang "out" of an album that was orchestral. Martin Denny was most defiantly a jazz based group as well as most Exotica that we think of.
Cheers
