The Big Kahuna Of Tiki On Black Vinyl LP!

Martin Denny 'Quiet Village' originally released in 1959. Iconic album artwork reflected the fantasy of Denny's Influential fusion of tropical moods.

Despite its ubiquitous appearance in thrift stores (it is the Whipped Cream and Other Delights of exotica), this record packs quite a few surprises. First, the final track is a re-release of the number four hit and Denny signature tune, 'Quiet Village' (originally on the first Exotica LP). 'Coronation,' 'Firecracker,' and 'Sake Rock' - covered by 1990s group the Cocktails - are representative of the standard Denny oeuvre: birdcall 'Polynesian' exotica, Chinese, and Japanese. Most intriguing, however, is the self-parody treatment of 'Little Grass Shack' set to a cha-cha-cha beat and punctuated with an absurd duck call instead of the usual birds.
