What's your favorite Exotica/Tiki album ? Mine's Bongoland from the Ultra Lounge series.

Hey, I remember that from the last time you posted this thread. Is your second favorite exotica album still "Quiet Village"?

Right now, mines the "Exotic Moods of Lex Baxter" compilation.

Probably "Night on Exotic Island" by The Surfmen, also issued as "Tradewinds Romance From Hawaii To Tahiti" by the South Sea Serenaders (Same LP). I've never seen it issued completely on CD..too bad.

Yea, I get jumped on a bit too when I accidentally duplicated a topic (though vets here should realize not EVERYONE currently posting is an old timer who is up to date on EVERY post EVER submitted, this forum is EPIC! Thor Heyerdahl couldn't navigate all this deep, dark space authoratatively, cut us newbies some slack!)

Anyway, my favorite of this subject is thisrather obscure (I believe) LP I have called 4:35 (4 Channel, 35mm Film) EXOTICA, by Ted Auletta and his Orchestra, from the Cameo label, circa (I guess) early '60s. It has a variety of standards like "Quiet Village" and "Taboo" but all the tracks are simply exquisite and exciting. If you see it in a bin, grab it.To my knowledge it's never been released on CD.

My second fave I guess is Robert Drasnin's "Voodoo" (which I have on vinyl and CD) and then, hm, pretty much any of Les Baxter's exotica albums, like "African Jazz" or "Tamboo."

Man, that's a tough one! The Ultra Lounge Mondo Exotica comp is superb as a primer, of course (that whole series is flawless). Lotta great stuff out there.

On this same note....I can't seem to find
"The Exotic Moods of Les Baxter" for less than about $75.00 or more.

What other Les Baxter CD's would ya'll recommend, to see if I would enjoy "Exotic Moods" enough to pay that kind of $$$?

Thanks,

Scott

It's fantastic, but don't get screwed by these opportunists. Keep watching the used bins and the garage sales. No reason in HELL these things should go for that much. (I'm looking for it too)

Too bad they're not releasing the Baxter albums on two-fer CDs like they're doing with the Martin Denny stuff.

Some of Baxter's albums are actually available on two-fers:

Thanks for the info....yeah, I actually saw one on eBay for $39.00 buy it now...but the bidding started at $10.00. Figured I'd wait a day or so...BIG mistake! It was snapped up in a hurry...and since then, it's gone for up to $100.00. Some genius has it on either Amazon.com (trusted seller or whatever) or Half.com for $279.00!!!!!! Granted, it's brand new, but give me a BREAK!!

Sooo..to my original Question....anything of Baxter's that's still in print I should get to try him out? I have Mondo Exotica, which has a few tracks, but I'd like to try some more first....

Thanks,

Scott

There's plenty of Baxter on CD. I just saw several new at Amoeba in SF.
