The incredible follow-up to the successful Britxotica! (JBH 057LP, 2015) and Britxotica Goes East! (JBH 059LP, 2016) LPs. This time, Jonny Trunk and the legendary DJ Martin Green take the listener to a magical musical place full of tropical delights - with songs of heatwaves, coral reefs, Haitian rituals and treasure islands, not forgetting the stormy seas and the odd hurricane. 16 tracks in all from a post-war era of musical adventure, this is Britxotica at its very hottest, most exotic and very best - incredible, rare, lost and exotic music from the wild British isles. Britxotica! (pronounced "Britzotica") neatly describes an odd and yet undocumented pre-Beatles British musical scene where famed UK composers, as well as unknown singers and bandleaders, threw convention on holiday and went wild. For part three of the Britxotica series, the compilation goes to the South Seas for a musical adventure of stormy seas, Hawaiian honeymoons, spooky rituals, dreamy walks through mango groves and a few sips from the juicy coconut. But this is more than just exotic music, the talent here is breathtaking: Kenny Graham, George Melley, Ted Heath, Malcolm Lockyer, Edmundo Ros and more -legendary artists adventuring into unknown territory with incredible results. There are songs and instrumentals here to charm and even beguile - there's even an amazing British cover of "Quite Village" - when did you ever hear one of those? This is wonderfully obscure music, and only Trunk records could compile and package such a compilation of bizarre and super rare British music so superbly. This all new compilation of British treasures is like no other, and will have you booking your ticket to the South Seas for Christmas. Featuring: Lucille Mapp, Frank Weir, The Sound Of Ed White, Ron Goodwin, Geoff Love, Marion Ryan, Dick Katz, International 'Pops' All Stars, Johnny Gentle, Betty Smith And The Malcolm Lockyer Group, Martinas And His Music and Norrie Paramor. Single LP on standard black wax.
