This turns out t o be a pretty solid 60s Madmen -style lp--anyone else come across this?
Its pretty slick but SOME 'ragtime' does permeate


There are most definitely a couple tracks I would classify as classic exotic on this album.

Anyone have a rip of the album. I didn't find the LP on eBay nor any digital tracks on Apple Music.


I am intrigued by that picture of the recording console in the liner notes. Seconding the request for a rip!

and 3 odd years later... can i say i am SUPER PSYCHED TC is BACK!?!

Images of the Cover (Gatefold Front, Back, Inside including Left & Right Flaps) and Labels are available here: https://www.discogs.com/master/1047160-Kenyon-Hopkins-Sound-Tour-Hawaii-Impressions-In-Sound-Of-An-American-On-Tour

I know that numerous rips have been made available over the years, but it seems they're no longer available.

Hmm, that's interesting--I could have sworn....

I really enjoy this album. Outer Island and Siva Siva are two tracks that feel very "exotica" to me, but the whole thing also reminds me a bit of Werner Muller's Hawaiian Swing.

This album was part of a whole series recorded by Kenyon Hopkins! I think there are 4 or 5 in the series and are all worth picking up.
