Scores from this weekend's Austin Record Convention:




They ranged between $2-10 each which is the most I'm usually willing to pay for Hawaiian or Exotica records (Gene Rains, Paul Conrad and Robert Drasnin being the exceptions and my top wants at the moment). It amazes me how many dealers were asking $20-50 for super common Martin Denny and Les Baxter records that they most assuredly returned home with.

And here are some recent thrift store finds all for $6 and under:

Some recent finds: NZ picture sleeve EPs dating from the late 50s to the early 60s, including 3 from Wellington's Viking Records label. The first two are by Eddie Lund & His Tahitians:





Loma & Her Polynesian Playmates (produced and arranged by Eddie Lund):



And one from Astor Records, an Auckland label. This EP looks like it would have been an in-flight souvenir on TEAL's flights from Auckland to South Pacific destinations all the way to Tahiti:

I'm pretty sure I've got more albums that would qualify buried in my stax o' wax, but these are the lion's share of the Hawaiian, Lounge, and Exotic discs in my collection - including my most recent unearthings:

Grabbed this copy of The Romantic Lure of Hawaii by the Surfmen yesterday. Sad to report that the disc is roached. It sounds like someone tried to play it with far too much tracking weight, several times over...

Keep that sleeve. They are flimsy and hard to find intact. The record is really common so you'll find it again. So once you get a copy with decent vinyl your set.

A bit of good news - the record's not as far gone as I thought. I gave it a second good (gentle) scrubbing. That seems to have loosened the gunk causing a lot of the groove noise. Probably smoke residue if I had to hazard a guess. It's still roached, but at least it's almost listenable now.

Just picked up this little gem. Sleeve is kinda beat up, but I couldn't pass up the price.

99 cents at a thrift. Looks like it was never played before. One I didn’t have.

Here's one for the Floridians out there. Recorded 100 years ago today!

Irving Kaufman - In Florida Among the Palms (22-8-1916)
(played on our 1914 Victrola VV-X)

Even before the end of The Great War, people were yearning for the tropics...

Longtime lurker, first post—Aloooha all! SO so many great records here, many I have and many more I envy/want.

That said, it's been a good year for new releases. This Spring/Summer I've freshened up ye olde Hi-Fi horde with this quartet of "new" LPs:



top left: V/A - Taboo - An Exploration Into The Exotic World Of Taboo Volume 1 = 9 versions of "Taboo" on 10" wax

top right: V/A - Voodoo Party Vol. 1 (reissue) = dark/mysterious Caribbean jazz/calypso/jungle exotica, it's all over the place with animal sounds, bwahwah horns, sensual strings, ritual drum descriptors, and etc. hullabaloo

bottom left: V/A - Wild Boy: The Lost Songs of Eden Ahbez = worth it for the unreleased tracks and for Arthur Lyman's version of Eden's Island (I don't have the Lyman LP that includes it)

bottom right: Elvis Presley - Way Down in the Jungle Room = the 2LP only features the "takes" and not the final tracks (I think the CD version has both?). Anyway, the takes are where it's at for the ambiance alone because it activates top-level escapism for especially tuned-in listeners. I mean, we all want to be there, right?
