On to the South Pacific, with a few highlights.....
Aloha Samoa by The Samoan Surfriders with Bill Sevesi & his islanders (Viking VP 54, New Zealand) should win some award for over-the-top record cover design....a painted-in palm tree, a blue grass skirt, and a veritable flower garden on her body.
Dance to the tamoure Tahiti by Ensemble Tahitien Tauhiti (Viking VP319, New Zealand) presents an inviting scene.
Tahitian swing 1936-1938 by Augie Goupil & his Tahitians (Harlequin HQ 2073, c1989, England) collects some jazzy, yet still very Tahitian numbers. I haven't seen this lp around too much.
