Description

From the publisher:

Take a giddy guided tour through the greatest moments of 1950s and 1960s spage-age pop and exotica.

From newly rediscovered musicians like Esquivel and Yma Sumac to lesser-knowns like Markko Polo Adventurers, this collection of bizarre and fascinating vintage musical ephemera with enthrall both the serious collector and the neo-Swinger weekend enthusiast. "Exotiquarium" supplies information about the artists (both musical and visual), the (mood) music they created, definitions of the odd instruments they used to create these strange and beautiful sounds (like the theremin), and much more.

Complete with a foreword by Lenny Dee (Decca recording artist and "Organ Lounge Master"), "Exotiquarium" offers a vibrant portrait of this surreal time in American music history. A must-have for lounge lizards young and old.
