Tak Shindo - Brass and Bamboo

While it's not the best exotica album of all time, Brass and Bamboo does contain what I consider to be one of the top three exotica tracks of all time, Tak's version of "Bali Ha'i."

There are several other great tracks such as "Caravan" and "The Song of Delilah."

Reminder: if you request a repost of a dead link you have to state which LP it is in your comment. Blogger emails me your comments but does not tell me to which post the comment was attached.

Hi Kono,

I think it may have been me leaving requests without names!

I was hoping to see if you would repost two of your little gems:

Fantastic Strings Orchestra - The Shadow of Your Smile


Milt Raskin - Kapu

I am really enjoying the music - truly collectible stuff, thanks so much for taking the time.

Happy Holidays!
