Anyone heard this LP? Apparently it's coming out soon as one of those Japanese paper sleeve releases.
Just wondered what anyone thought.

Definitely a "must have" Martin Denny album. The title track was composed by Robert Drasnin and it was arranged by both Robert Drasnin and Bob Florence. It is Exotica music with a Latin flavor. I highly recommend it. I am sure the CD release will sound spectacular. The stereo copy on vinyl is difficult to find but worth seeking out.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

As does Dusty Groove -- although they are not taking orders just yet, you can have them email you when info for said title gets updated.

Dusty Groove is where I saw the "upcoming" notice. I believe they carry the other ones as well.

Has anyone had any experience with these "paper sleeve" Martin Denny releases? Is there some point to the paper sleeve?

I once got a Japanese CD of the "Green Hornet" soundtrack and it was just mastered from an LP and I didn't think it was done that well.

Just curious.

$34.29 for a CD that's probably mastered from an LP and for which no royalties will probably be paid! yikes.

Just got my copy today! It is fantastic. Definately not mastered from an LP, it has great solic quality and the packaging really makes you feel like you are holding a mini version of the LP! I highly recommend it. Got mine from CD Universe.

Damn, $30 for this one album on CD. Boy, those Japanese imports are pricey. I would stick to finding a mint copy on vinyl which can be had between $10-$15 tops! Or you can probably find this on the internet free by now, but it's just not as fun. My two cents worth!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

This one is also currently available for download at:

FWIW, I didn't really get too enthused over this one.

Cheers,

Martin Denny Rocks! I recently impulse bought a double CD of his and it has quickly become a favorite around the ranch!
