Martin Denny: Exotica Volume II



    Liberty LST 7006
    Transistorized Stereophonic Sound
    ...the exciting sounds of...Martin Denny Produced by Si Waronker, engineered by Ted Keep, Cover design by Garrett-Howard

    In Exotica Volume I, Martin Denny produced sounds of such a fabulous nature as to titilate Hi Fi aficionados the world over. From the Persian Gulf to the Savoy Plaza, letters of praise and exclamation came pouring into us here at Liberty... "How were these sounds reproduced?" ... "What type of primitive instrumentation did he use?" "Was it recorded in the Continental United States?"... "Did Liberty send a crew to the South Seas?"... And so many more questions we can't begin to list them all...Some inquiries were of a highly technical nature from laboratory experts and denizens of the "components" school, etc.

    How best could we please all these wonderful listeners was the question that furrowed our brows. To attempte a hundred thousand individual answers would be a task far too taxing to even attempt...But finally a conclusion was reached with which we think you will all happily agree.

    We recorded another album...Exotica Volume II. Herein Mr. Denny's imagination has gone even further afield, and with superb Spectra-Sonic Sound giving us matchless fidelity, he as further explored the myriad tinkle of instruments foriegn to our civilization, plus fresh approaches on those familiar to our ears.

    Never have you heard such wonderful persussive expressions or such reedy, totally uninhibited notes from a saxophone as you will in this album. How does he do it? Take this wonderful journey into exotic lands, and when you return, you tell us.
