PURE FANTASY.THE WILDEST MARTIN DENNY EVER! 13 Nov 2000
By James D. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album could be called Afro-Desia,the exotic sounds of The Randy Van Horne Singers,because they are what make this work stand out among other Denny releases.The Choral arrangements on this album are excellent.They're even wilder than the Randy Van Horne parts for Esquivel!The Denny boys are in top form,playing the usual extensive array of instruments from every corner of the globe.Augie Colon's birdcalling is better than ever.And Martin Denny is there providing the waterfall-like piano that holds the arrangements together.This is a really wild album,one that I can comfortably label as exotica at its absolute best.It's what one would IMAGINE primitive music to be,although far from it.This album really paints a picture.Standout selections are "Ma'Chumba","Cubano Chant","Swamp Fire"(perhaps the best Denny song ever)and the frenzied percussion of "Siboney".The others are ALL excellent as well.I highly recommend this one and consider it essential exotica.

Forbidden, primitive delights in one sun-soaked collage! 12 Jan 2003
By jon sieruga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A sinfully salacious package, with the Randy Van Horne singers giving Martin Denny's orchestrations an extra kick(weren't they once the Hanna-Barbera singers?). "Afro-Desia" will take you to new, forbidden places, one where the sounds are aphrodisiacs and the grooves are so convincing you may start worrying you forgot your passport at the hotel. Absolutely enchanting, and arguably Denny's best outing.

TAKE A TRIP TO THE LOONY BIN! 25 Jan 2008
By whatchamacallit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
MARTIN DENNY, MUST HAVE CHEWED SOME MAGIC FUNGI,
TO CREATE THE KU-KU MUSIC ON THIS FANTASTIC,BUT
VERY STRANGE CD. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR
YOUR SOPHISTICATED MUSICOLOGY MAJORS.

THEY SHOULD PUT A WARNING STICKER ON THIS ONE.
STRICTLY FOR THE HEP AND THOSE IN THE KNOW.
.

JUST DROP THE NEEDLE (WINK, WINK)ON THE
TSETSE FLY AND MAN, YOU GOT YOUR TICKET
TO THE LAND OF OZ AND THINGS THAT
GO WIG-OUT IN THE NIGHT....YEA...AM I
ALMOST THERE?

Wild and Hot. 31 May 2006
By James Baack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an album that is not for everyone. This is great background music for a summertime bar-b-que when all of the boring guests have left and all the drinkers have stuck around until past midnight. It is really a fun and colorful collection that makes you want to either run around your house naked wishing you were a monkey or make up a batch of margaritas. Put down a few Zombie's or Mai Tai's , spin this disc and be prepared to be transported to La La Land.
