On March 6, Capitol is releasing a new compliation of Martin Denny’s Exotica classics, apty named “The Best of Martin Denny’s Exotica.” Here’s a track listing:

1. Exotica
2. Coronation
3. Quiet Village
4. Forbidden Island
5. Oro (God Of Vengeance)
6. La Pampa Y La Puna
7. Flamingo
8. Hypnotique
9. Misirlou
10. Caravan
11. Escales
12. My Little Grass Shack In Kealakekua, Hawaii
13. Jungle Drums
14. Taboo
15. The Enchanted Isle
16. Similau
17. Ringo Oiwake
18. Stardust
19. Martin Denny on Martin Denny (bonus interview)

Martin Denny’s excellent back catalog is relatively easy to find (thankfully!), but any collection that serves as a handy introduction to the exotic works of Martin Denny is okay by me. I don’t know what the bonus interview is like, but I’ve seen interviews with him before, and he was an engaging fellow. Amazon is accepting pre-orders now.
