Here’s a link to my blog where I listed all the Exotica, Soundtrack/Library Music and Guitar acts that came to my mind and are available at iTunes USA or if not there another of their international musicstores.

If you find one that got away, let me know!
Edited to say Surf is now featured as well.

I sucked up all the iTunes Exotica too. If we keep hitting them up...maybe they will find more.

You might also try these:

Fisherman - Vibraphonic Jungle Exotica & Lounge
Kenny Sasaki & the Tiki Boys - Tiki Pop, Tiki Moon
Kava Kon - Departure Exotica
Milt Raskin & His Orchestra - Exotic Sounds of Hawaii

I agree that if we keep hammering them with requests, they might wake up.

There is also a ton of downloads from The Polynesians on iTunes - none of which is available on CD. Its not exotica, but its great vintage Hawaiian music.

I hate to blow my own horn, but someone's gotta do it. Don't forget Waitiki! We have been nominated for a Hawaii Music Award, and our first CD, "Charred Mammal Flesh," is in the que at iTunes, should appear sometime this month. Also, next week, we will begin recording our next CD, with more originals and some rare Arthur Lyman material in the works as well.

Check out Sophisticated Savage's debut album "Strange Paradise" on itunes. Kinda tiki, kinda exotica, kinda modern - pretty cool. I think the lead singer appeared at Tiki Oasis a couple of years back..

Like the good Mayor, I'm going to blow my own horn here as well....

www.tikiyakiorchestra.com

screw iTunes, we have our own 99 cent downloads , AND you can preview to the entire song too.

I'm making a CD and posting the songs for download as they're completed.

Look for the CD, "StereoExotique" hopefully in June.

Aloha

I have a number of listeners overseas and when they get to know about the shipping cost they back out wordless, that doesn’t happen with downloads.
One more reason to support Apples efforts in online music sales and drm.

"Kapu" now has quite a few albums up on iTunes

"Kapu: The Exotic Sounds of Milt Raskin" is now available--appearently in several versions of the same thing. If you do a search for Milt Raskin you will come up with several hits on iTunes. ONe interesting thing though, the FLAIR records version of "Kapu" is much cleaner than the others. Although they appear to be the same album...interesting.

Why they put it up without any artwork is beyond me. But it is good to see some of the old exotica coming out on iTunes.

I've seen at least four versions of this. The one with the black label appears to be the mono version, the others stereo.

On the sound samples, yes, the Flair version seems to be the cleanest.

Are these from vinyl? I hear some hiss in the quiet sections but no pops or clicks. Maybe they were cleaned up. Any ideas?
