The musicianship is just so great - guitars, ukes, mallets, percussion - it's really an inspiration to anyone who's ever tried to master an instrument. Really a wonderful collection. Good cd.

Here is a rough guide for how long it should take for you to receive your order from this date. Please note that this is a guide only and should not be interpreted as a guarantee.
Once your order arrives in your country, it is passed to your postal service, who will deliver it to you in keeping with their standard working practices. A phantasmagoric female choir joins the pristine atmosphere of which Ann Stockton remains as the lead voice for the rest of the rapid-firing, tempo-shifting song that oscillates between a double bass-backed, Chinese tone sequence-driven mallet instrument majesty and surf guitar-loaded percussion prowess.
The song ends on a mysterious note with a quavering flute, siren-like chants and glockenspiel sprinkles. The muffled waves at the beginning of the track are an actual field recording, but they fade out to make room for the wonderfully twanged steel guitars, with the xylophones, flutes and even the liquid strings of a harp adding tremendously to the tranquilizing flavor.
The superb Bamboo , written by Fritz Kuhn, turns things up a notch with vivid bird calls, a beautiful jazzy groove with vivid piano droplets scattered throughout the song, several rhythm changes, and a beautiful concoction of eupeptic vibraphone and flute melodies.
The accompanying surf guitars round the effervescent tune off. The Surfmen decide to keep the melodramatic lamento of the original, but present it nonetheless in a more laid-back fashion. The Latin piano is in here, as are the pulsating flutes and the suffused vibraphone. Moonlight In Paradise starts with blurry waves, wonderful harp washes and rather sunny steel guitar strings that are accompanied by an exhilarative flute. The plasticity in the second half is especially noteworthy, for Costanzo and crew go all in , creating a whirling maelstrom of exotic tribalism.
If the tracks on the CD were presented in this sequence already and if it had the terrific cover of the first LP, I would rate it an unchallenged 5 stars.
Those who are curious to see the original LP cover can just do a Google image search for "The Sounds of Exotic Island" For the benefit of those who remember this era's music. Most people familiar with contemporary Jazz of the late 50's through the early 70' have probably heard some of these names.
I'm not sure how many of those people play the additional tracks from the 2nd LP but the music is quite a bit different. Re-arranging of the tracks can give you: The complete 1st Surfmen LP "The Sounds of Exotic Island" plus the 6 tracks from the 2nd LP "Hawaii" It's mastered well enough that this is most likely the best these track have ever sounded.
The hiss is reduced and a slight hum that was in the LP's has been eliminated. Otherwise, the mastering is identical to the original LP's. Does it go without saying that you should listen to the samples before you purchase this album?
That being said, the name of the band is The Surfmen which might lead you to believe that "Wipeout" is going to be somewhere on the playlist. Not so. This album is Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman stuff.
I found this music to be smooth, relaxing, and mellow, but not without that exotica edge. Report abuse. Top notch session men playing Hawaiian standards - who could ask for more? I especially enjoy Alvino Rey's steel guitar playing - you don't often hear him play Hawaiian style. I could do without the bird calls, but they aren't on every song so it's not to hard to get past them. The musicianship is just so great - guitars, ukes, mallets, percussion - it's really an inspiration to anyone who's ever tried to master an instrument.Jul 29, · The second LP "Hawaii" AKA "The Romantic Lure of Hawaii" (Released around ) originally contained three tracks from the first LP - Moon of Manakoora, Moonlight in Paradise (Retitled "Polynesian Fever") & Orchid Lagoon - plus six new tracks 5/5(1).
