A few recent finds...kind of swingin' 70s resort hotel band stuff...



And this rare beauty, the soundtrack of an Italian film, "Ti-Koyo & The Shark."

Found this Reader's Digest collection in one of the local thrift shops this weekend:



It also contained "liner notes" from the former owner, who rated each track based on whether it was appropriate for ballet dancing. It appears that very few are.

Hamo, now that's funny, I actually laughed... it felt good! I've never felt the urge to pick up that box set but if I'd seen those notes I might have given in! Before you posted it was 3 months to the last post so I'm going to double up today. My Exotica/Hawaiian record collection 300 lps or there abouts.

Goodwill finds.





Bought this Martin Denny vinyl even though there were a lot of scratches all over, fortunately it plays real nice and I really like this record.

A good day at the Goodwill. The Warehouse album is a bit of a surprise find.

I have 3 De Wayne Fulton Goodwill finds and they are all autographed. I'd guess most of them are.

A few more recent finds of interest for one reason or another....
I recently said in one of my videos that I didn't get "south Pacific" Broadway Musical/Film records unless they were super cheap because they didn't interest me all that much. After having said that, I find myself searching them out...but still only for cheap. I can't even tell you how much I love the Polynesian elf/rag doll/whatever on the cover.



This is an AMAZING cover, but the cover is the only thing to be excited about. Otherwise it's Japanese steel player, Pozz Miyasaki playing 1960s movie themes/pop hits on steel, not exotic at all. But, man...that cover...



This was a fascinating 2 LP set "The Breeze & I" I picked up at recent collectors expo for $2.00. It's a Japanese koto being featured, with orchestra & steel, one half Hawaiian songs, one half Latin numbers. Really excellent arrangements.


I didn't know what to expect from this private pressing LP, but Lowell KIesel's "Hawaii", (of Kiesel Guitars fame) is quite interesting. Electric Hawaiian steel guitar with some unusual syncopation.


Another mystery LP from the mid-80s, I had no idea what it would be like. "Hawaii Calls: Cafe Bar Music" by the South Sea Island Orchestra. GREAT steel guitar with full orchestra, very lush, slightly groovy, "mall-like" arrangements. And they went far off the beaten path for song selections as well.


And this 2 LP set from The South Sea Melodians that I just love mostly because of the beautiful cover! Instrumental steel guitar, it's good music as well.




Finally, this Taiwanese LP, very strange to my ears of course, called "Love Songs From The Torrid Zones" features Chinese vocals of such titles as "Hawaiian Love Song", "Paradise Of Hawaii", "Serenade In Honolulu", "Song Under The Moon" and others. Not exactly pleasing to the Western ear, but fascinating.


I would also re-mention to those who may be interested, that "Hawaiian Hi-Fi" is back on the air at the new Live365.com. I decided to join back up with the new ownership and so far so good. So, if you enjoy "easy listening" Hawaiian & may want some tiki bar background music, check it out.

I don't know if this is a national pricing policy, but the local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store near me has all of their vinyl sale priced at only ten cents each! I scored about 20 exotica gems.

I picked that one up, too. Some of the tracks are surprisingly good.

Estate sale a couple blocks from my house. Found these amongst a bunch of Sons of the Pioneers, Chet Atkins and Kenny Rogers LPs.
