1: Eden Ahbez "Eden's Island" (Del-Fi)
The High point of this genre in my mind. Dump the Mongoose song and you got one breathtakingly gorgeous masterpiece.
3: Warren Barker "A Musical Touch of Far Away Places" (Warner Brothers)
Wordless female chorus over rich, sparkling, dreamy orchestrations. Extremely good.
4: Phil Moore "Polynesian Paradise' (Strand)
One that continues to grow on me over the years. Simple, breezy, beautiful LP. Side openers are amazing.
5: Les Baxter "Jewels of the Sea" (Capitol)
For three specific S1 tracks. Dreamy, iridescent, ondioline/orchestra Underwater Exotica fare.
6: Martin Denny "Afro-Desia" (Liberty)
Outrageously fun, ludicrously-fake, faux-African with lilly-white choral group.
7: Buddy Collette "Polynesian Suite" (Music & Sound)
Marni Nixon exotic jazz vocals S1. Incredible 20 min. narrated suite S2. On (very rare) mid 50s private label.
8: M. Kawahara & the Exotic Sounds "Ecstasy" (Venus)
Extremely obscure, jaw-dropping, recent ('05) exotica/sexploitation discovery from mysterious/shady 60s Asian label. Trumps all the Chaino releases combined.
9: Michel Magne "Tropical Fantasy"
Madhouse aviary music. Wildest LP in the genre.
10: Frank Hunter "White Goddess"
Strange, eerie percussion/electronics soundtrack-like trip.
