Various - Tropical Britxotica! LP



During the 1950's American Exotica exponents Les Baxter, Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman fused African and Latin rhythms with Caribbean and Polynesian sounds to evoke the sonic equivalent of a tropical island paradise. This 3rd volume of Britxotica examines how their English equivalents fuelled by the popularity of hit musical South Pacific, attempted to create the same sun-drenched Haitian ambience in rain-soaked, post-war London. -Martin Green
