While Australia battles through a heatwave, category five cyclones and floods, friends of The Secret Island in the US are rugging up against the extreme cold. What a crazy world. To take our minds off the weather for your listening pleasure I present Exotica Today by Martin Denny, a 1966 Liberty Records release.
Think Martin Denny... think Exotica! When his first record, "Quiet Village," was released, Martin Denny immediately became the spokesman for paradise.In this particular album, he selected some of the most popular tunes of the time and have them a beating with the Exotica stick. For true fans of exotica he may have not gone far enough, but for those wanting a lounge feel with the odd bird call then this is for you! My pick is "The Shadow of Your Smile" which has more than a hint of Quiet Village about it.
Enjoy some Exotica Today.
