A surprisingly great little album – and a lost exotica relic of the late 50s! Crown was sort of a knock-off label that didn't always produce the best stuff, but this LP is one of their gems! Milt Raskin
lays down ten tunes of prime exotica, with a feel that is like some of Les Baxter's best stuff, but that is also augmented by a lot of exotic instrumentation from Raskin
's personal collection. Titles include "Koko Head", "Moon Festival", "Kapu", "Lehua", and "Mileka".
(Cover has some splitting on the spine.)
