I agree with avoiding compilations. You will certainly miss the original intent with a best of anything. My suggestion is to start with one original Denny CD or record and instead of collecting a bunch of Martin Denny stuff right off the bat, pick up some other critical gems and then go back to Martin Denny.

In my humble opinion, some other critical records in the exotica mode are.

Robert Drasnin Voodoo
Cal Tjader Several Shades of Jade
Yma Sumac The Voice of Xatabay
Les Baxter Ritual of the Savage

A great guide to this music is

Happy Listening!

T.F.

bership at RapidShare).

Does anyone have "From Maui With Love"? Can you share any thoughts? Am curious to hear his piano version of "Quiet Village."

Cheers,
Rupe

Cheers and Mahalo Kono. I scored a still-sealed copy a year or so ago, only to find that it was too warped to play. Good rip BTW. Vic

Wow- thanks for all your hard work Kono. Listening to Bora Bora now and love it. If you have a donation tiki mug I'll pitch in.
