To all Exotica collectors:

For my upcoming book "Tiki Modern & the Wild World of Witco" I am still searching for a good reproduction of Thurston Knudson's "The Rhythm of Tropic Drums" LP cover, or any other of his albums, like "Jungle Drums".

If anyone out here has a T.Kn. album, and can share a scan or color xerox of the cover, please reply or private message me here on TC.

I don't have that album...I heard it's a really nice one.
Here is the cover from a website, for those who don't know what's the cover looks like :

Thanks Virani, that's the one, the website host does not own it, it seems. I would like to get a better repro of it...
I believe it might be from the 40s/early 50s. Apparently his compostions also appeared earlier on Decca's "Authentic Tahitian Rhythms", anybody has that one?

This comes much too late, (and I can't help out with a quality scan as I did have the pics from ebay some times ago) but that's how the double 7inch issue looks like
