    The groovy kats and kittens at Amazon.com were nice enough to send me a little email blast with some swingin’ deals on swingin’ tunes.

    Space Escapades, Les Baxterspace-escapades_
    CD, 24 New from $10.06

    Quiet Village, Martin Dennyquiet-village
    CD, 21 New from $8.87

    Music for a
    Bachelor’s Den Vol. 6,
    bachelor-den-lyman
    The Best of Arthur Lyman
    CD, 7 New from $6.75

    Plus 325 results under the search “Exotica” starting at around six clams, including hard to find stuff by The Waitiki 7, and the ever-elusive Exotica album by Bananarama (wait, what? How did that get in here????)

    At prices like these you can afford and extra $15 drink at the Mai Kai!

    Of course these are CDs. Old-school Tikiphiles will insist on original vinyl, which is a little harder to come by and a little more expensive. Sometimes people tell me they get lucky finding some original 1950’s Denny or Baxter albums at thrift shops for a buck. Damn, hats off to you kids! I gotta say through all my years of searching through piles of moldy, dusty records, I’ve never gotten that lucky finding a great album. However…you can still catch a break on eBay now and then…
