Bigbro - How's the CD coming along?

Any updates as to when we may be able to order this fine CD?

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):



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





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.

Damn, Sven

March is not too long a wait, man!

Thanks for sharing what you could. I can tell this will be THE jewel of my exotica CD collection.

Music aside for now (plenty of time later to discuss that aspect) I'm grateful that a booklet will be included packed full of info and pics. I know your layout will be colorful and informative, entertaining...you know in that magical 'Kirsten' fashion. The packaging as shown is a great choice too(Its a drag CDs are small and not LP sized - my eyesight sucks nowadays lol) Thank You for committing to this project.

I'll be one of the first in line for this release. Patience does pay off.

Cheers! Greg

Sven,
looks great, can't wait to get a hold of it.
Will there be a release party for it?
and will it be for sale at Wacko or 8 ball?
or Amoeba, they have a good Exotica section.

If I made a cdr of some very mellow surf bands doing stuff that I think would be great for a 2nd cd comp, for you to put out, would you be interested in hearing it?

Jeff(btd)

I had missed this thread and read thru it all today - very interesting. Truth is, I don't stop by the Tiki Music thread very often because I'm really not familiar with the genres of Tiki Music. I bought a Tikiyaki and a few obligatory "Marty and Arty" downloads but a compilation CD like this (along with the copious liner notes) would be a great thing for newbies like me. Like a See's chocolate sampler Anxiously awaiting the March release.

Sven, just curious about the logistics for a CD like this. I assume you have to get rights from and pay royalties to all the music owners? What a pain in the butt!

I am hopeful I have succeeded in my aim to make the CD interesting for both, Exotica/Tiki novices and Exotica veterans alike. Actually, to make it not too esoteric and more appealing to the non Exotica-savvy populace, only one third of the songs are classic style Exotica instrumentals, the rest all have vocals, to ease folks into the genre. I hope to strike the same balance between popular and specialist appeal I aim for in my books.

I am not paying anyone, that is all the record company's problem. But A.), the tracks are so esoteric, it can't be much, and B.) I believe in Germany the rights situation is a little less difficult than here. You pay an organization called the GEMA a basic fee, (but you still can sell the product here). I myself am not making much on this, I will get paid in raw goods -CDs -which I then can sell to you folks.

That may be, Sven, but anything you seem to be involved in turns out great. I am so digging "tiki Modern", for example. To me, it is even more the definitive "tiki" book then BOT was! (and since BOT is to me like the bible of Tiki, that's saying a lot!)

Well, folks, I felt the same way when I first heard the release date, but you know what, it's funny how when you think something is bad, there's always worse. I just had confirmation of the possibility of a great opportunity presented to me, something that made me jump with excitement --and I will not say one word more-- but it was followed with the humbling reality that this project would not come to fruition until... the year 2014 !!! Kind of puts those few months into perspective. And donĀ“t ask, I won't tell.
