I agree that there are some things mastered from vinyl that sound great. It's not always easy sorting out the good from the bad, though, when you're dealing with snippets of lo-fi samples on the internet. That is why it's good to get opinions from people who have actually heard the CD.

My suggestion to you are Nelson Riddle's Sea of Drreams and Love Tide on a two-fer by Capitol Records. Kind of "easy listening" exotica but lovely nonetheless. Cheers, Jeff



I agree! Great disc! It reminds me a lot of the Jackie Gleason Orchestra recordings. Not really Exotica, but great "mood music". It's perfect if you throw it into a multi disc changer along with other Exotica/Hawaiian music and hit the random button.

Here's some of my suggestions for things you can get on CD or MP3. They are all excellent!

The Versatile Henry Mancini
Kapu - Milt Raskin
Savage & Sensuous Bongos - Don Ralke
Tropical Fantasy - Michael Magne (included on CD release of Orienta by Markko Polo Adventurers)
Passions - Bas Sheva
Jazz Heat Bongo Beat - Buddy Collette

Wow...I didn't realize there was a CD release with both Orienta and Tropical Fantasy. Many thanks!

Well, I stumbled upon this CD while doing a search on Amazon.com and ordered it yesterday: http://www.dutchexotica.nl/index.htm

If you click on the link to "music" at the top of the home page you can hear some samples. I'm really looking forward to getting it.

I love the cover art, too -- a great takeoff on the classic Martin Denny "Exotica" LP cover design.

I just remembered these two CDs: Incredibly Strange Music, Volumes 1 and 2. See here: http://www.amazon.com/Re-Search-Incredibly-Strange-Music/dp/B000000HX9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1279037226&sr=1-1

and here: http://www.amazon.com/Vol-2-Incredibly-Strange-Music-Incredibly/dp/B000001PAF/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1279037226&sr=1-2

Not all of the selections would necessarily be classified as exotica, and the people who produced the CDs weren't too careful about the sound quality, but they are well worth listening to and owning.
