Another patriarch of Exotica music.. Arthur Lyman. I'll tell you.. there's nothing better than sitting on the patio in the summer, sipping a Mai Tai, and relaxing to the soothing sounds of Martin Denny, Les Baxter, and Arthur Lyman. I've already tested out these albums, and they play perfectly. Once I get these ripped and uploaded to my iPod, I'll be able to jump into a tropical mindset no matter the season in this land locked state of Colorado.
I bought this one for Schnitz & Giggles
Not that I'm huge fan of polka or anything, but I do dig listening to it around Oktoberfest. Ahh.. I can picture myself now filling up my Das Boot with Warsteiner Dunkel, eating Bretzels, Bock-wurst, und Sauerkraut, and listening to some good old fashioned Oompa music!
If you don't love a good Cha Cha Cha.. then you need to get your pulse checked!
I didn't buy this one,
but was perplexed by the album cover..
So there you have it. Five way cool albums that play like they're brand new. I basically got hours upon hours of listening pleasure for the cost of $1.45. Most of the time I buy maybe one out of one hundred albums I like at thrift stores, because they're so badly damaged. These albums I found on this particular day were grouped together by themselves, so I'm wondering if they were owned by the same person since they're in such pristine condition.
Oh.. and pictured below is one more throwback from the recent past for you. An album hearkening back to a time when kids loved to be as active as they could. They were hyper and energetic, and it wasn't due to having A.D.D. I wonder, would the kids of today dig something like this in 2016?
