OK, wise guy, YOU go and pull together all the images, and write all the text for each song, then. It's not just like burning a bunch of faves on your lap top for your friends, where you can pile them up indefinitely. It's research, writing, lay out and editing, too.

The booklet looks beautiful Sven. We would expect no less! The unfortunate thing is, the average listener never bothers to read the liner notes. But then again, the average listener probably wouldn't buy a CD like this in the first place. It would have been nice to have this when the BOT came out. Because that is exactly how I first read the book: exotica music on, cocktail in hand, book open. Man, that's my kind of studying.

I recall you did a "Music to read Tiki Modern by" live set on Luxuria radio a couple of years ago. That was quite enjoyable. Tiki is so alluring when all the elements come into play: sight, sound and taste. Of course, as you said, this is OUR idealized version of Tiki really because it was hardly experienced this way back in the day.

Ok I'm sorry, I didn't think about the book, I was thinking just music and space.
I did however think that maybe cost was a issue.
as usually when you/a company does a compilation.
you/they, have to pay to use all, or most of the trax.
So after my post, I was thinking maybe Bear Family was wanting to save some $

Hey I found this thread from almost 8 years ago...

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=501&forum=17&start=0

This might be a good follow-up to do. I think "Tiki Karaoke - Sing along with Sven" would be a good concept. The CD could include a song book with lyrics.

This is starting to take off at Tonga Hut on Sunday afternoons....

Wow, that's an oldie but a goodie. A few songs on that list made it into this album.

Would I have stocked up on the song list, the booklet would have had to have equally more pages, which yes, would have raised the price. It's already gonna be high, with around 26.- bucks as an import. And I couldn't have done images and text for some of the songs, and not for others. I like keeping my works on an affordable level.

Well, unfortunately it will be a while, like end of March! It's gone into production now, I was just reminded to write the promo text for the coming catalog, but til its printed and shipped from Asia it'll be months.

Here is a sample of what the packaging will be like, not in a crappy Jewel case where you have to squeeze the booklet in and out, but it is glued into a cardboard cover and will open like a book, with 50 pages (this is a SAMPLE for the style only):

[image snipped for brevity]

Every song will get a double page of text and images, here are some snaps from my laptop:



[other images snipped for brevity]

I am so thrilled I got to squeeze that photo that Gecko took of me and Martin Denny in there. Martin holding my book and me holding his poodle.





The booklet and liner notes make me want this package more than the tracks. And it's kind of funny to see the Ed Sullivan album in the booklet. Before I became interested in Tiki, I bought a copy of that at a thrift store, framed it, and gave it to a tiki-phile friend as a birthday present. I paid a dollar for it.

My copy arrived Monday (4/5) in the mail from 8 Ball. Amazing work, Sven. I fired it up on the bar stereo and whipped up a couple of big drinks for happy hour. Booklet is awesome, though I didn't get a chance to read it yet because the wife was looking through it. It's a little spendier than your "average" CD, but well-worth it!

I'm now joining others as a happy recipient of "The Sound of Tiki" direct from Bear Family Records...

Sven, you have more than succeeded in "creating a harmonius listening experience and mood"; enjoyed reading every page while listening and sipping multiple tropical beverages (in this case, Miehanas from the Bum's recipe).

Say, is that Martin Denny's poodle in your lap on the page 50 photo? I'm the dad of two standard poodles (the big ones) and you might not see more than poodle if either of them were sitting in your lap.

Regards,

Tom

SL, good to hear from you. Please let me know where to send a copy to, your multiple compilations for the Northern Tiki crawls have been an ongoing inspiration for this project.

RB and TTD, thank you for the kudos. Yes that is Martin's poodle, I got to hold it while he held the BOT. Gecko took that picture.

I had the pleasure to -for the first time- listen to the CD IN and AT a Tiki bar, here in Prague in the "Tiki Taky" (formerly the Taky Tiki ), while sipping a Zombie (AND a Mai Tai, and..), and must say I was happy to find it WORKS. For me, it contains exactly the kind of moods and stories we all would like to hear while patronizing a Tiki restaurant -but which we cannot ask for without being "patronizing"!

Picked mine up at Viva Las Vegas this weekend...and I'll agree with the others, the book alone is worth the price of admission. The artwork and layout are really great, it's like a mini-Book of Tiki. Not to mention the music is stellar. Nice work Sven...hopefully first in a series, i.e. Ultra-Lounge?
