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.
