They appear to have taken on the challenge with enthusiasm, taking more than a few opportunities to poke fun at Denny/Lyman trademarks like bird calls (the Surfmen’s are possibly the phoniest ever put on vinyl) and savage jungle noises. Their material reads like a primer of exotica music: “Quiet Village”; “Taboo”; Moon of Manakoora; “Hawaiian War Chant”; Fire Goddess; Orchid Lagoon; Jungle Romance; Bali Hai.
The Surfmen recorded two albums’ worth of tunes for Miller, who subsequently released it in a variety of different packages. Exotic Island is the first and easiest to spot, and given its title and cover, probably the one most likely to be marked up by record dealers. Tradewinds is a suitable substitute and probably cheaper, since it’s often stuck in the bargain bin with the rest of the Hawaiian music albums.
