I was so glad to find this CD, simply because it would cost a fortune to buy the original albums from which these tracks are taken. If, like me, you only have a passing interest in exotica, then this compilation should more than do the trick. I was interested to hear the work of Martin Denny and Les Baxter primarily because I had read that their use of tuned percussion, animal noises, and unusual instruments was an influence on Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. I wasn't disappointed in that respect: there are theremins and bongos aplenty to be found here, and the Smile era obviously started earlier than any of us imagined...

Dim the lights to sultry. Gently place this into the Cd player. Sit back and let it weave its magic. Set in the days before mass foreign travel and after the biggest US venture abroad, the war in the Pacific. Returning GI's brought souvenirs of the exotic far away never to return places they obliterated. These distant lands became the staple for desire and imagination. Hawaii joining the land of the free bolstered exotica with large Japanese and indigenous populations.

Americans dreamed of wistful travel, far away places, seemingly unspoilt white sands, blue seas, drinking fruit cocktails, serenaded by beautiful women lying semi naked whose only desire is to mop the sweaty brow.

Martin Denny and Les Baxter, masters of the moonlight serenade, exude their distinct style. The muzak transports most jaded souls onto the magic carpet ride. Floating on a languid sensuous journey to the pyramids of Egypt, gently vibrating its midriff in groin moving thrusts beckoning the unwary to decamp to the unspoilt virgin lands of Oceania. Mutinies in the Bounty of primeval opulence. Yma piercing the heavens to summon Viracocha to let down his hair and join the fray. Oranges falling off trees turning to pulp fermenting cocktails. Shaken and stirred with coconut juice and a dash of sugar cane providing the perfect accompaniment to the rush of air flowing past the face, rippling the hair and cooling the soul.

Make believe stages, less stress than Ryanair and cheaper. This CD creates travel without passports. The queue is abolished, along with body scans, DVT and tin foil food. Over 60 mintues you can travel over the globe with the deft footwork of the Phineas Fogg.

Poverty, sex working, drugs, alcoholism, child beggars are all cleansed from paradise of the senses as escape route 1 becomes a grabable vision.

A fabulous CD and one of my favourites. A damn fine collection matched only by the excellent and highly recommended listening of BongoLand also in the series.
