Used to pick as many of these on vinyl as I could at the thrift stores. This is not the dub influenced lounge music as we think of it today. Although it may have been taken seriously by some, this is lowbrow at its best and an entire ethos was created around it, more of an insulated view of the exotic other, an imaginary fantasy of an alternate world that may or may not exist.
Trust me, you'll have the urge to take out the tiki torches, Hawaiian shirts and bongos and watch Gilligan's Island reruns.
Enjoy, and for the real thing hit those thrift stores.
