I wasn't quite sure whether to post this under "restaurant records" or even "euro-exotica", so I figured I'd just keep it with the rest of my "show us your collection" stuff. I picked this up just his past week...an interesting piece.

This is Michel Louvain, apparently a French-Canadian lounge singer performing Hawaiian "standards" in French with full orchestra. Many of the arrangements are direct rip-offs of arrangements from Andy Williams hit LP "Hawaiian Wedding Song" and several feature twin saxophones much in the style of Billy Vaughn's huge "Blue Hawaii" LP. Titles include (in French, of course).."Moon of Manakoora", "Drifting & Dreaming", "Beyond The Reef", "Ebb Tide", etc.

According to the liner notes, the cover photo was taken at Kon-Tiki in Montreal, although I don't know if Mr. Louvain ever sang there, but I would think it was likely..?
