Found a bunch more local stuff lately! How about the Vanguards at the Del Villa Rio. A Northern soul group that does a cover version of popular hits like "Sweet City Woman." I also found an accordion group called The Spitfires from Dayton that do a KILLER version of the "Theme from Shaft" using 16 accordions!!!! It's freakin' unbelievable how good this is. Look for a CD compilation soon!

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Awesome thread, guys. I collect Los Angeles location albums, but I'm sure there are some that are tiki places. I certainly wouldn't pass one up if it weren't from L.A. either. Off the top of my head, and from here at work, I know that I have a live album from the Trails restaurant in the San Gabriel Valley. ModCom's Chris Nichol's knew that place well, and Korla Pandit used to play there. Alas, the LP isn't a Korla Pandit release, and I can't remember the guy's name off-hand, but the title of the album is "Nite Life," and he indeed plays mostly '60s Hawaiian hits, including the title song.

If anyone runs across another copy of that Rancho Cucamonga album, please let me know. I spent some time on Archibald Street one day, the former home of Zappa's Z-Studio in Cucamonga.

Has anyone mentioned "The Island-Aires: Hawaiian Interlude"? The jacket says they are presented by "The Polynesian..Walteria, California" and were the restaurants stellar nightly attraction.
Some of the members were also performers with a group called "The Polynesians" who recorded on Crown Records, and they have a very similar sound.
It's really a beautiful vocal LP. Grab it if you ever see it, although I confess the copy I have is the only one I've ever seen and I got it on eBay a while back.

Thanks for the tip Kaiwaza! I will keep an eye out for that one. Any way you can post a picture of the front cover?

Cheers and Mahalo,

How about that one:





not private pressed but great covers

the second one has fab tamoure track on it but it’s nothing twisted d.i.y.

and there are the following Lps (but my scanner is to small for them):

Manuiti 3123 Taaone Ambiance avec Les Savates Jaunes LP (the Savates Jaunes are playing in the Hotel Bar of Hotel Taaone and covering beside there tahitian material Wislon Picket and Jimi Hendrix, but not interesting imo)

Tahiti EL-1025 Eddie Lund Presents...Les Barefoot Boys (at) Bar Lea LP

Tiare Tahiti TTM-8225 Quinn's Orchestra - Une Night au Quinn's LP

That’s what I call little stage room!

I have two Les Barefoort Boys LPS, different ones. One is just called “Bar Lea”, the other one “En Direct De Tahiti”. I know there’s yet another one, but has been too expensive for my budget, counting the postage from USA.

Just find a .jpg of the quinns orchesrta lp (a nice live recording that has it's charm, incl Accordion, two songs are called after the Quinns: Quinn's Twist (only instrumental) and the weird up tempo vocal Quinn's Tamure)




The third Les Barfood Boys is not connected to a location and called: Encore! Avec Les Barefoot Boys et Loma




There is also
Tahiti EL-1028 Eddie Lund Presents...Marie Terangi et les Bel Air Boys: Paumotu Party au Bel Air
(studio Lp incl. Bel Air Luxus Hotel group)
(sorry no pic available)



and don't forget about the other Zizou Bar Record (Manuiti 3013)/cd with the colourful modern tikis on the cover that was posted in the 'zizou bar in Papeete' topic:
