Size MP3 album: 1523 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1432 mb.

Martin Denny coined the term in 1957 when he called an album Exotica but at that point, the fad was well underway, kicked off at the dawn of the '50s by Les Baxter, who released his own groundbreaking album, Ritual of the Savage, in addition to producing and arranging Voice of the Xtabay, the 1950 debut by Yma Sumac.

Captured across three albums are 48 (54 on the CD) curious examples of the short-lived genre's reach, each summoning their own sonic visions of Shangri La, bringing their versions of the Pacific, Africa, and the Orient to the hinterlands of America

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Various Artists (Artist) Format: Vinyl. Technicolor Paradise - Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Exotic Delights. It was a musical cocktail born in a marketing meeting: Two parts easy listening, one part jazz, a healthy dollop of conga drums, a sprinkling of bird calls, and a pinch of textless choir. Serve garnished with an alluring female on the album jacket for best results. Exotica! The soundtrack for a mythical air conditioned Eden, packaged for mid-century, tiki torch-wielding armchair safariers.

The Blue Bells - "Atlantis" (2:24). 8. Bill & Jean Bradway - "Paradise Isle" (3:02). Side 3. 1. The Melody Mates - "Enchantment" (2:24). 2. Don Reed - "Nature Boy" (feat The Voice Of Love) (2:25).

Yes the price is a little steep, yes if you’re like me you’ll have buyers remorse for a minute... but man oh man, once you open the package you know you made the right choice. Just when you think it’s maybe getting a little repetitive and you kinda get it, a strange and beautiful track will come on and make you melt in your hammock and spill your daiquiri. And when you think about it, $39 for a 3 record comp isn’t that bad... certainly not as bad as light in the attic charging $35 for the upcoming Pacific Breeze double LP. I will cherish this comp for a long time. ????????????

Great Compilation, great packaging but WHY, oh WHY do you have to use the cheapest paper-sleeves when the price is at around 60€ and everything else is in great quality? There are Paper-leftovers on every record and especially the Daiquiri Dirges-record of mine already had several VERY visible traces and even a big bump on Track B4 when I took the record out of the sleeve for the first time. That bump causes a constant clicking noise for about 20 seconds which makes me want to mourn like that girl in the Blues Jeans' "Moon Mist"-track...

Hmm... A: 60euros damn you got ripped off... B: sounds like you had bad luck with your copy, mine’s perfect. My guess is the issues you had have more to due with the way the records were stored, presumably during international shipping. C: the records of the time this music comes from did not come in fancy sleeves... I doubt numéro had that in mind but to me it’s the most negligible detail and only makes the pristine, beautiful packaging and all around wonderfully conceived compilation truer to this period.

Summer porch hang outs are successfully soundtracked. Another Numero box above and beyond - great packaging, liners, and pressing. A+

Just received my box set and it’s on black vinyl and boy is it amazing.

Do you have the vinyl collection?If yes, then dumb question: is the vinyl black? Or colored?
