"An Evening At The Royal Tahitian"
Ok, so here is a memento for those of you who are avid collectors of long gone Tiki watering holes! This is an LP that features the entertainers at the Royal Tahitian which was in Ontario California (east of Los Angeles). The LP appears to be produced by the RT itself. Featuring a very slow version of "Quiet Village"

CHECK IT OUT - but hurry, this will only be up for a short time!

Thank you very much for posting the album of the Royal Tahitian. I live about 15 minutes away from the building (which is now a golf course) and I am always trying to learn more about it.

The golf people that are there now are rude, and could give a crap less about the history. In fact the city will tear down the building soon to make a new club house.

Nothing cool is left except the structure. The bridge out front is still there along with an old bent gas torch. Some big lava rocks in the back......but nothing else really cool.

Thanks again for the album

Erich,
Sorry to hear about how little remains of the original place. Its sad to hear that the city is going to tear it down soon too. Get out there and take some pics of what's left. I've been wanting to take a drive out there and see it for myself. I guess I better get out there soon. Glad you like the LP!
Cheers

Wow!!!!!! Great stuff!!!! Thanks for the Exotica. Beggars cant be chooooosers, but does anyone have a copy of Hawaiian Tattoo by Martin Deny that they could put up? I love that album and can't find it anywhere.

Thanx

Thanks for the "previews" of the LPs! It's always strange when you hear the ambient noise of the turntable emenating from your computer.

Kingslod,
Yeah I know what you mean! I had made the digital move back in the late 80's and hadn't put needle to vinyl in more than 10 years! I've got back into LPs after realizing that most of the exotica out there will probably never be on CD. I'm trying to balance my digital bias with my growing collection of analog LPs. I must admit I have grown to accept a kind of retro-cool aspect to hearing this older music with a few pops and clicks.

There's an obscure Les Baxter album called 'Alakazam the Great' available for download here:

http://www.basichip.com/

It's a childrens album about a monkey with Rat Pack-esque songs. Not his most Tiki album by a long stretch, but an interesting one for completists. (And those whose kids are into Sinatra).

Be quick, though - it's another that's just up for a week!

Here's yet another semi-exotica LP for download!



It was the cover that originally attracted me, thinking it would be yet another Crown Records surf cash-in LP where they present some generic instrumental twist music and wrap it in a surfy cover. But it's not surf at all! From the beginning of the first song, I heard the percussion and thought "oh cool, this sounds like good exotica!" But then in other songs the flute comes in with the sort of slow mambo rhythm, so doubts creep in that maybe it's latin jazz. Well, you can decide for yourself! There's one song in particular I can't get out of my head - Polynesian Hayride. Just keep humming it over and over.

As usual, this might be just for a few weeks or so, and then it'll be time to post another one!

*Update - the tracks above ain't on the web anymore, although the cover image will stay. The music download link above will always lead to something, just not the same LP in this old post.

-Randy

Hey Lavapants, (responding to your shout out for Martin Denny's "Hawaii Tattoo".)

I have Mr. Denny's "Hawaii Tattoo" (as well as most others of his if anyone's looking for something in particular) and I am more than happy to share anything from out of my collection but I am a caveman when it comes to computers and have not yet figured out how to transfer an LP to my hard drive, let alone put it out on the web. So if there is anyone in the L.A. area who has it down to a science and wants to offer an assist, let me know.

Thanks, aquarj -- downloaded the album and am enjoying it very much -- agree it's more "loungey" than surf -- but just love every bit of it!
