Rezension

Das 3-er Vinyl ausgepackt, aber noch nicht gehört. Aber schon beim Auspacken ist klar, dass die Numero Group hier das non-plus-ultra in Sachen Exotica geschaffen hat. Das Vinyl kommt auf drei fetten Vinylen mit Picture Cover, dazu ein 48-seitiges, LP-großes Booklet mit jeder Menge Informationen - alles in einem festen Schuber. Der helle Wahnsinn!
Das sagt die Numero Group zu dem Meisterwerk: „It was a musical cocktail born in a marketingmeeting: Two parts easy listening, one part jazz, a healthy dollop of conga drums, a sprinkling of bird calls, and a pinch of textless choir. Serve garnished with an alluring female on the album jacket for best results. Exotica! The soundtrack for a mythical air conditioned Eden, packaged for mid-century, tiki torch-wielding armchair safariers. Be it mosquito-bitten torch singers, landlocked surf quartets, fad-chasing jazz combos, mad genius band leaders, D-list actors, or a middle aged loner programming bird calls into a Hammond, Exotica was always more concerned with what geography might sound like over who was conducting. Captured across three albums are 48 (54 on the CD) curious examples of the short-lived genre's reach, each summoning their own sonic visions of Shangri La, bringing their versions of the Pacific, Africa, and the Orient to the hinterlands of America. Technicolor Paradise is where one makes it, after all.“
