Fantastic Strings Orchestra - The Shadow of Your Smile

Betcha don't have this one! I'm assuming that this is a pretty rare Exotica album since I've never ever seen anyone mention it before.

Yeah, the cover is a bit bizarre.

The title of the LP is The Shadow of Your Smile - Fantastic Sound by The Fantastic Strings Orchestra. As far as I can tell this album was recorded in Japan in 1972 and The Fantastic Strings Orchestra consists of Japanese musicians and vocalists. The label is JVC CD-4.

Yup, its a full fledged Exotica release with all the bird calls and other sound effects. It does have some 70s touches (wahwah guitar or synth bloops) on some of the tracks that makes it sit in better company with 70s exotica LPs like Nardini's or Michel Magne's but many of the tracks could sit comfortably, if not intimately, with your Denny's and Baxter's.

Enjoy. Its a good one.

"Ebb Tide" is a smoker.

New working link!

This is an intriguing record. Side two has the edge as of now, but I believe that's simply because I by then had got into the groove.

And I'm with you on the cover. Doesn't agree with me very much either. But the music's the essential thing :)

Any chance for a re-up on this one? I really love your blog - I just discovered it so am wandering through the archives marveling at what I have missed.

Thanks and Happy Holidays - hope the ankle is on the mend.
