This is good news. Gene Rains was completely on a par with Martin Denny & Arthur Lyman and has been relatively unknown to the digital set.

I was listening to Gene Rains Lotus Land (vinyl)last night and now this CD? Super deal. I'd buy it for the cover photo alone! I'll pick this up when I find it.

Placed my order last night. I'm glad Gene Rains is finally getting a CD release. As mentioned on The Quiet Village podcast: if you like it, buy it so labels know we want more re-releases of older exotica.

Just got my two (2) copies of "Far Away Lands" from Amazon! What a beautifully produced package of long overdue tiki music on CD! Thanks to everyone at Tiki Central who had a hand in getting this music released as a physical, digital product. You guys rock!

Ever since DigiTiki touted the wonders of Gene Rains on his Quiet Village podcast, I've wanted to own a piece of this wonderful slice of overlooked exotica. Now it's finally mine, and I'm going to spend the rest of the summer (and the years ahead) feasting on these 19 morsels!

Bravo!
