King Kukulele and the Friki Tikis.
Haole Kats.
Mai Kai Gents.

You can buy those out of this forum.
Check for links.

There are multiple links within this forum for free downloads of exotica.

I suggest a bit of true Hawai'ian music.
Braddah Iz, Ohta San, Makana, Jimmy Buffett (just kidding on the last one)

Some Surf.
Blue Hawaiians, et al

If I was limited to just one exotica purchase - it would be this one:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000002U5U/qid=1114703206/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-0415554-3126352

The music on this double CD (it's packed!) is all remastered and sounds great!

You might addd this one, too....it's a great compilation:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000063BPQ/qid=1114703439/sr=2-2/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_2/104-0415554-3126352

Enjoy....and welcome!

I think one of the best places to start is the Ultra-Lounge's "Mondo Exotica" compilation. That way you can listen to a few varied artists and decide what you'd like to acquire more of and what you could do without. It's a good introduction to exotica for those who are unaccustomed.

I totally agree. Finding that CD at a flea market a few years back was a significant boost to my interest in tiki and Exotica music in general. A really great listen.

Ultra Lounge's "Mondo Exotica" is a great start but definitely buy as much Martin Denny as you can. That to me is exotica in it's truest form. Next I'd buy "Voodoo" by Robert Drasnin, then hit the Arthur Lyman catalog.

Some people don't consider him tiki, but I like Don Ho as well.

The Ultra Lounge idea is a good one. And as strange as this may sound, check your library to see if they have it! Probably depends where you live but I'm in the Minneapolis area (which has a great county library system) and they had all sorts of Ultra-Lounge. I picked up one I didn't have -- Mondo Hollywood - and, accendently of course, burned a copy while playing it on my computer.

BUT a better idea is to listen to the Retro Cocktail Hour online at
http://www.kpr.ku.edu/retro/. Darrell Brogdon plays a great assortment of exotica. And, with a little computer savvy, you can record the programs for play in your tiki lounge.

Then later on, after you get a feel for the genre, you'll know what to buy!

Aloha! For that old-time Hawaiian vibe, complete with uke strumming, crooning and steel guitar, The Maikai Gents' "Wiki Wiki Grog Shop" is a sure bet. How's that for a plug? Enjoy: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=14350&forum=11&10
