Not from Mexico but...

From Venezuela, like Mister Naufrago.
Here's a good question:
What's the connection between This record and the extinct Hawaii Kai in New York ?

Probably the best record cover ever made.

Look at this amazing record album I picked up at a garage-sale this morning. It's by a Mexican band called "Grupo Guerrero" and shows the band members on the steps of a very cool tiki bar.


The record was "Hecho en Mexico" and the back of the record states that the band hails from Acapulco. It is also signed by all the members and has the inscription; "To our Susy with a Lot of Love. From Acapulco".

I'm assuming this is probably an Acapulco tiki bar in the photo. Could it be the enigmatic AKU TIKI, whose coaster is on page 121 of the BOT?

The music is a kind of disco/salsa from the 70s, heavy on the synthesizer.

Wow! Will we ever know? That definitely is the N.Y. Hawaii Kai's Logo. Maybe the owner had relatives in Venezuela and pursued the dream of ALL Polynesian restaurant owners: To franchise out and build a chain like Vic and Don did!

And will we ever find out what the connection between Polynesian pop and the Small Faces and Procul Harum was?

No mucho misterio, Im afraid.
Venezuela isnt really a good place for tiki.
You know, it is a tropical paradise in itself.
Hawaii Kai is classic of Caracas night life
Even Hugo Chavez was one of their patrons for a time.
But was a tiki bar only for a couple of years in the early 60s, then a groovy discotheque and popular radio program during mid 60s (whence the Small Faces connection) and a live Salsa venue during the last three decades.
Believe or not decor remained almost intact during all this time.
Closed as Hawaii Kai five or six years ago (today its called Nostalgia)but everybody still refers to it like Hawaii Kai.
