I almost had that cover in my new book as an example of "nice tropical decor-but not Tiki" --but it was edited out...I am reserving the nitpicking to Tiki Central

And now folks, eat your heart out, the hero of the Restaurant Record genre, Paul Page:

This is the same album, with three different titles, all taken from LA Tiki restaurants that were part of the same chain, complete with their typefaces:

The Castaway in Burbank

The Ports O' Call in San Pedro

The Pieces of Eight in Marina Del Rey

The interesting thing is that, except for the "Pieces of Eight", all of these places still exist, albeit in a completely de-tikified form. One more from the same chain that is still around is The Reef in Long Beach:

Now considering the fact that this album has either classical (Ports of Call) or newly written (Castaway, Pieces of Eight) song titles that refer to each of these places,

...with two titles in the track listing that have the word "Reef" in them, I am betting that there is a fourth album out there that bears the distinctive "Reef" typeface, as seen on the beautiful match book
