Burl Ives On The Beach At Waikiki

    Have a holly jolly luau! As the liner notes of this LP gush, "there is something particularly right about the image of Burl relaxing on what is perhaps the most famous piece of sun-drenched real estate in the world - the beach at Waikiki." With that image sun-burned into your brain cells, throw this disc on the hi-fi and grab a fistful of Mai Tais as Mr Ives ukes his way through Polynesia.

Les Baxter, Le Sacre du Sauvage

    High Tiki! "Charming and influential plastic bamboo exotica (Martin Denny would cover five of these tunes for his own influential Exotica LP six years later). The 1951 sleeve notes tout this as a "tone poem of the sound and struggle of the jungle", but Baxter's orchestra - enough strings and brass to overflow the Nile - are pure Hollywood. It's lush and romantic, and often hopped up on Latin rhythms."

    SOLD
