So given the discussion of Gene Rains, and some fine images of vinyl lp covers in Tiki Finds. I was thinking for the edification of the collector of Exotica Vinyl that those of you with the ability to scan lp covers, or take and post digital photos should have a thread to exhibit these fine sonic gateways to times past.

And it would help the begining collector to know what to keep his eyes open for.

I just had a major find, but am scanner/camera-less at the moment.

But I am happy I found the Gene Rains "Far across the sea" lp for $3.00

I think both traditional and "exotica" ala Denny should be represented. With no trash talking between the fans of the two genres. Heck surf could even worm its way into this.

So whos up first? Elucidate mate!

Ok, heres some in the Gardener Collection.
I'll add track listings and descriptions as I have time. The images aren't the greatest, as the digital camera I borrowed from work is only 2 megapixels...


Lee Adeo "Paradise Regained"
Which has a cool heavy cardboard cover with a pineapple shaped cutout revealing a glimpse of the inner sleeve.


The inner sleeve...


"A Bunch of Bongos"
Not Polynesian, but actually a pretty good "bongo" record. Better recorder than most of this genre.


Back cover.




Good ole Less!


Back cover.






Whats wrong with this label???




Mills Brothers Great Hawaiian Hits.
Ok, notice the tiki that has traveled from the Forbidden Island? Apparently he wasn't forbidden to leave...


The working mans Les Paul.


I need a better camera to do this one justice.


Back cover.


Your band. But I want to know why in the hell the last song on the album is 76 TROMBONES!?!


A recent acquisition.


Detail from back cover.


Unfortunately they feature the accordian in nearly every song!


Nowhere as good as Mr Denny's, but still pretty cool.


THAT album...


More bachelor pad as I remember. But it does have Miserlou and Caravan on it.


My personal fave.


Back cover.


A close up of what appears to be a Track listing card inserted into the shrink wrap. I'm not removing the wrap to find out!


Traditional style, well recorded.




Close up of cover detail.


Not tropical, not space age, but a some mellow jazz inspired by the show that had some great footage of the war in the Pacific. Actually plays well with Mr Denny and that style of Exotica. And what a cool cover. I don't think the jet pictured was in service for more than a few years.


Rear cover.

Scott, do you mean like THIS:

This is actually the (very recent) thread that inspired the Gene Rains post...

Indeed, I lost track of that one.

But It would be cool to do a front cover and back cover shot with track listings.

this is a great collector's guide idea for a book ...made just to shed light on exotic sounds...it'd sell...and it'd boost prices too...

Hey Swanky,
Whats the track listing? And maybe a quick blurb on style, recording quality etc?

I've never seen that one.

It's Hapa Haole music, with vocals!

It's an EP with many standards like "Hawaiian Hospitality", "The Hukilau Song", "Mai Poina", "Cockeyed Mayor of Kaunakakai", "Yellow Ginger Lei", "Blue Lei"

That's what I recall off the top of my head.

It's got a great female vocal by a gal who I can find nothing on. Well, actually, it lists her by a single name and there are too many people out there with that name to know who she is!

I chose a couple off this record for the music on the Hukilau site.

There are (well, in my experience) too few records with vocals, and of those, many are not that great. It's as though after Alfred Apaka, everyone gave up. Haunani sounds like a man. Other men sound like women. It's just really rare to find a record with all the songs sung and all great. This is it. There are a few others I have found, but very few.

Swanky,

I LOVE those guys, ever since I heard your recordings on the Hukilau site. Very cool record cover too.

I mostly collect for the covers. I probably haven't even listened to half of these!

Music Out of the Moon was paired with Music For Peace of Mind and released on 12" LP also. I'm not a huge fan of those releases, but they are interesting for the time period.

FYI: I believe those two sets were the first uses of a color photograph on a music release.

damn, i need to advance myself with tech matters. i certainly could fill entire data bases with some of my records cover images. but it is nice to see a few that i don't have or have never seen.
