2014? Well, the world is supposed to come to an end 2012...

I'm guessing the United Nations has hired you as a consultant to help establish a new society once the earths crust has stopped moving and a new single continent is left? I assume they want this new land to be based on Danny Balsz' "The Tikis"... only larger?. You know, to fill up the entire new continent.

Well, unfortunately it will be a while, like end of March! It's gone into production now, I was just reminded to write the promo text for the coming catalog, but til its printed and shipped from Asia it'll be months.



I am just trying to find out if 8-Ball will get them in time to sell at Viva Las Vegas April 1-4.

I would vote no to both.
I like to put myself back in suburban California in 1963....
I'm 7 and my brother is 12.
My brother would have been rocking to the Ventures and the Shadows with his knock-off Sears guitar....not knowing yet, but just waiting for the Beatles....
My parents and their friends would have been going to dinner and drinks at the Lanai..listing to Denny, Baxter, Lyman, Hawaiian....ect.
The brother would have hated the exotica...the parents would have hated the surf rock.
EXOTICA ONLY.
You're parents are always right.

Sven, this CD looks INCREDIBLE! Ingenious concept... Congratulations! The cover art is stunning... Great work from Kevin Kidney, as usual!

And what a great discussion on this thread! Since I can offer nothing illuminating on the subject, I can only reiterate:

Will there be a release/listening party?!?! That would be AWESOME!

Keep us posted!

Are we gonna see any Yma ?? Does her song "Kon-Tiki" provide enough of a Tiki connection?

Yeah, it might not be as exotic as some of the stuff on "Voice Of The Xtabay" but her inclusion would validate her place within Tiki culture. It's probably a stretch though. (But hey, if she isn't Tiki enough, what was she doing at Hukilau in 2005?)

I don't think she gets as much appreciation around here as some of her other Exotica peers. Even 60 years after the fact, she's probably still ahead of her time. The Bigbro seal of approval would go far though.

Also I'd hate to see "Hawaiiannette" Funicello not pass muster if Don Ho can make the cut.

Just my 2 cents.

Of course it would have been great to include it, and that's why I listened to Yma's "Kon Tiki" when I was compiling the disc --but it just didn't cut it. There is a reason why it is so obscure, it's just not one of her strong pieces. And she did not make it on this compilation because though she might be "Exotica", she is not "Tiki". Don Ho made it, (even though he himself isn't either,) because he sang "Quiet Village", and the Ventures because they intoned "Kon Tiki". Remember this compilation is about titles/sounds relating to TIKI CONCEPTS. And I had the responsibility to, just like with the material in my books, present music that was accessible, and not only for the Exotica aficionados.

And if this first CD sells well enough, I might get to do another, maybe even a Bear Family Multi CD set, like this one:

http://www.bear-family.de/index.php?sid=feec552dd9916b70e060df49a8f2ac76&cl=details&cnid=as347e253e436c454.60188604&anid=9a7522627552dacc0cc80c5d41a570dc

Now THEN I could throw a broader net, and Yma and Anette would certainly be included, too.

I just discovered this thread and I am really excited about this CD. Normally, I only buy vinyl, but I will have to make an exception. I like the fact that this is more than just an exotica compilation.
BTW I found out about this CD on an audiophile forum that I frequent:

Got my copy yesterday and have been listening to it non-stop. The song selection is awesome, Sven. Love Don Ho doing Hawaii 5-O. The little booklet that comes with is great, love the pics. Good job, Sven, it's worth every penny.
