One of my fave weblogs, I'm Learning to Share, posted this goofy Capitol Records promotional centerfold for Les Baxter's Ritual of the Savage. In it, Les portrays famed African hunter, Serge Drek. Vocalist Dottie O'Brian appears as steel-wool heiress, Griselde Kittle, and singer/actress Gisele MacKenzie portrays the White Goddess.

Funny stuff. Click on the image to view it full size.

My pleasure! I figured this would be well-received 'round these here parts...

Question: what the hell are those black-hooded figures standing behind Les and Dottie in panel 5 supposed to be?

Just saw this now. What a find! The whole tropical helmet/Trader/Safari cliche was an important predecessor and paralell to Tiki. I hope to be able to contribute to this genre very soon in person .

Funny you should say that, because when I posted this, I thought of you doing a little comic photoplay as the Great White Hunter of Polynesian Pop.

The "Quiet Village" was a quiet AFRICAN village?

The Tiki images on the front of the album were mostly drawn from African carvings as well; ones from the Museum of Primitive Arts, NYC.

Cammo, do you have photos of those African carvings? You know how much I love tracing pop versions back to their origins.
