I could've sworn up 'n down there was already a topic covering this, but a relatively thorough search turned up nothing anywhere... Could be I saw it on the night my sweet tooth went crazy and I put away half a bottle of Sangster's Jamaica rum cream...
I'd like to see other collections up here, just so's I can get a look at what else is out there to hunt down (a lot)...
Too much to hamper down TC, so -
A Collection of Exotic Albums
(A good chunk of the images I had to upload to RYM myself)

Hey, nice collection! So many that I don't have. And thanks for the album cover scans. I love eye candy like that.

Thanks for the comps!
I actually never knew how many of the things I had accumulated until I joined the RYM site & listed them. Grab one at a thrift, give it a quick listen and then it gets lost between some punk & country albums or stuck in with the wacky outsider-Christian-whistling LPs... of course, that's only applying to the cheesier ones: Sumac, Denny, Drasnin etc. all have their hallowed slots.
About ten of them I got off ebay - 8 hard-to-find ones in one lot. Wish I was that lucky the rest of the time...
But beware if you join RYM - it's highly addictive and'll slowly chip away at your TC time.
Now how 'bout those other collections? Show 'em off!

Well, OK. My record collection is all on cds, but it's alright: a lot of them SOUND like LPs. The guided tour begins here...


This is the lounge/Exotica/electronica section, from the 49th State Hawaii stuff through Zloty Dawai. Note room for future expansion.


Same room: classic rock Abba to ZZ Top, and graciously interpolating Tiger Lily's teapot collection.


Here we have the concert DVD & box set shelf. Note stacks of new acquisitions awaiting their jackets. This is in the monastic computer closet adjacent to...


...the Celtic/Soundtrack/Jazz/Classical shelf. From the Akira soundtrack to Zawinul. Wire rack on closet door contains new acquisitions awaiting a listen and further classification. Yeah, I know.


Contrary to all the ex-punkers who're supposed to be Tikiphiles now, Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends...Ladies and Gentlemen, the Progressive Rock Wall!!!(aaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!)

Hi,

Wow, some amazing shots! Twitch, those are some great LP covers. And Pahoehoe Ule, I love the "wall(s) of sound." Very impressive.

Here's what I've got up online:

A bunch of favorite LPs can be seen here:

Also galleries at http://www.kfai.org/node/94 (half way down the page there are some gallery links), and individual covers for each week's show (click on the "more" buttons in the "previous shows" section).

I have much of the common Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, and Les Baxter, both Robert Drasnin Voodoo's, but on vinyl, I have a few unusual items. A mint copy of Dominic Frontiere's "Pagan Festival," which I love, Dick Shory's New Percussion Ensemble "Music for Bang Baaroom and Harp," also mint, which is not as cool, and "Felix Slatkin Conducts Fantastic Percussion," also mint, which I do like quite a lot.

Mayor, I very much AGREE! That Slatkin LP is fantastic. In fact, I'm busting it out for next week's show!

p.s. I'm also for lower rum prices. You've got my vote!

Here's a shot of the listening lounge..right next to the bowling shrine. About half of the cd's are missing from the shelf because they are either in the car or at my husband's work. The vinyl is a mix of new wave, punk, garage rock, glam rock, and psychedelic.I have a stack of exotica and weird 1950s dork music with cool covers in the tiki room. We have a 1950s Blaupunkt console in there.

Thanks for the direct: that's quite a beautiful collection of album art. I especially like the fact that you included some Mancini and Quincy, as well as classic lounge.

Pahoehoe Ule,

Thanks for checking out the LP cover gallery! Glad you liked it.

Mayor, finally dug this record out... it's been awhile. The version of "Autumn in New York" is absolutely incredible -- nice and spooky opening, then the flute on the melody with a quiet march beat -- followed up by the "percussion instrument potpourri" (where everyone and his brother gets a turn on something) and then the harp kicks in. Add back in a haunting ending of flute and harp --- NICE!

I just added it to the playlist for next Monday's show.
