OK, I finally sat down and spent the time to create a CD from my Tiki Gardens LP. I still have to put this thing together, but it looks like i will have it available as a total package with the artwork, etc. Its the next best thing to spinning the real disc, which I don't do too much because I love it too much- its probably my favorite tiki item in my collection, and really hard to come by.

So now it has been digitized for posterity. 19 tracks of exotic polynesian paradise in Florida..

check out this track:

Wow very cool. Will you offer copies for sale or trade?

What software did you use to record the tracks to your computer? I've been looking into doing it too, and havent't had success with the trial versions of software I downloaded. Also, I'm on a laptop, which has a mic input, but no "line-in." Do you know if that's having anyting to do with it?

Mahalo!

Absolutely........worth the time and effort. Just as good as some of my older Hawaiian LPs including demo Martin Denny and Les Paul stuff. -TheTikiGuy Mahalo

Would love to get my hands on a copy!!

Fatuhiva -

Any chance of you burning a few copies and selling them to your fellow TikiCentralites?

Inquiring minds want to know! :)

I second that motion..

i'd pay a reasonable amount for a copy

F

yes I will be putting the whole thing together and selling them for a low price like $8-10 or something like that to recoup my costs, materials, etc. I actually went out and bought a stereo component CD burner because it was a royal pain to do it on my computer. It wasnt cheap, but it works pretty well.

The package would include all the original LP artwork and text, most likely on a seperate CD scanned at a high resolution so it could be printed into a CD booklet. It would also include a gallery of tiki gardens shots that you can peruse while listening to the record.

That's just a tiny sample of the weirdness and tiki-ness of this insane record. I was getting blown away all over again listening to it while I transferred it over. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that is both totally tiki and totally kitschy at the same time.

Excellent.......just let us know when copies will be ready!! -T

Most excellent Fatuhiva,
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Please let us know how to order a copy.

I will have it all done very soon. I'll probably just put a dutch auction up on Ebay..

its sounding good.

Wow. Sounds very good, I can't wait!
Thanks for making it available.

I think i am going to stand in line for this one.
Thanks for the hard work

later next week I'll be putting it up and I'll make sure you all know about it on tiki central..

great stuff!!! Glad that everyone will be able to listen to the sounds of tiki gardens while cruising the memorial! Line me up for a copy!

May I add this to my broadcast?

Soooooo.... looks like the plan of the tiki gardener & myself doing this is out....
How soon can you have this available for sale? I've been wanting this for a long time.....

If you're interested, I could write up a liner notes sheet, and possibly do a mini poster of some of the stuff I've acquired, including maybe some stuff not on the site.
Let me know.

That would be a great addition to the image CD. Sounds like a cool idea- we could also add some links to your site.

I'm totally up for it- shoot me an email at [email protected]

I will also have some pics in there that I bet you havent seen yet (I've been saving a couple)

sure go ahead and add it to your broadcast- spread the word of Tiki Gardens! You may want to mention Tiki Gardener's site as a place to get more info, etc

I will have a link to get a copy at http://www.tikimug.com as well.
