I wonder the same thing. If they're anything like "Drew's Famous" collections, it will be a bunch of stuff not really tiki.."Under The Boardwalk", "Margaritaville", etc. (Although I must give credit to Drew's Luau collection which has some funny rather Spongebob Squarepants-like fake steel guitar tunes on it) well, since it's from tiki farms, hopefully, it will be better.
Oddly, I just finished up converting my favorite vinyl exotica tracks (minus the overly re-released Martin Denny & Baxter) in steel, vocals, and orchestras onto 12 CDs...how is it possible that I couldn't fit them on less than 12 CDs?? Oh well.

Okay... the cat's outta the bag. Here's what's up and why I'm so stoked that TC is here and part of this...

This is a 6-disc set. It is the following...

Tiki Farm's Ultimate Tiki Tunes
Tiki Farm's Ultimate Vintage Exotica
Tiki Farm's Ultimate Modern Exotica
Blah's Ultimate Surf Tunes
Blah Blah's Ultimate Hawaiian Classics
Wilma and Fred's Ultimate Luau Tunes

We've got a lot into this and I think all tc'ers will be happy. Right now, we're up to about 100 artists and over 300 tracks in working out the final stuff.

"Tiki Tunes" is the set sampler. Now here's where we are with it. Ultimately "Tiki" tunes stem from vintage exotica but cross over into modern day acts like Ape (my personal fav) and Lushie, King, Gents, etc.. There is room for "Tiki" in the forms of vintage, modern, surf... all of the genres described. The parties I've thrown & attended have all genres, either spun or live. Let's face it, 3-4 hours of Martin Denny, Les Baxger & Arthur Lyman... I love it but somebody shoot me!! I can only handle so many chirping birds and lapping waves after so much time but it's still my fav.

So to my request. Please post to this thread what you want to hear in all of the above genres. Get crazy - send the weird stuff. We've got so many artists out there both big and small that can make this series the best. If it isn't dead-on good, then I ain't gonna let it happen. Here are some of whom I like the best in all of the genres (and there are tons more)...

Ape
Blue Hawaiians
Bruddah IZ
King
Gents
Ken Sasaki & the Tiki Boys
Mermen
Lyman
Sumac
Ka'Kau Crater Boys
Ernie Cruz
Boss Martians
Amy Gilliom
Tommy Tokioka
Makana
Dynotones
... and a lot more.

I'm really hoping that TC'ers can put in some good feedback and I want to give TC a major shout-out in the liner notes of the "Ultimate Tiki Tunes" sampler - the one that debuts the series. I need your help TC.

Mahaloz,
Holden

Awesome line up Holden. This collection of tiki tunes could very well be the soundtrack for Tiki Oasis V.

Sweet!

The Tiki Tones Rock!

How about Combustible Edison?

Any chance you might consider doing a Tiki Holiday CD too?

Thanks Holden and Tiki Farm.

By the way - recognize the cover art artist? It's Doug Horne - check him out at www.swampfirelounge.com . The songs haven't been chosen yet. We're working through a bunch of material and I'm hoping for more input from TC. Here are some other artists in the hopper...

Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Packs
Project Pimento
The Aliis
Fisherman
Preston Epps

...there's more but those are all I can think of right now. If you guys want to buy an awesome Hawaiian musician's cd, go to www.royal-t-records.com and purchase Tommy Tokioka's "Happy to be Living" - it's well worth every cent spent and here's a fun kicker. When he recorded the tracks, he needed a distinct soprano male voice for the background on a few songs and a friend of his put him in contact with a guy who was vacationing on Kauai and he agreed to do the background tracks... it was Steve Perry!!

Mahaloz,
Holden
