  • Anyone Hip Me To More Exotica Jamaican Voodoo Jams Like These .......

    which made me think of this much loved single.

    Love this whole vibe too.
    Sure stuff will come to me the next day or so, but off the top of my head, loads of other early Don Drummond has an eastern exotica tinge to it.
    A maybe obvious one . . .



    How about this?


    Or this?


    Or this?
    To infinity - and beyond!

        That Cyril X Diaz is a long time favourite of mine, You can get a legit download of it & other Diaz stuff from the Smithsonian Folkways site.

              This has no Jamaican reference but the site I originally found it on may have some stuff on.

              Tabu - Manny Duran and Orchestra (1955) - been after this since finding it on the wonderful Exotica Project site a few years back.

              Maybe its downbeat with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals but it is an excellent example of a downbeat mix with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals

                  I was thinking of the Lennie Hibbert "Creation" LP, there's a fast latin jazz type track, think it's the first on the LP, but it doesn't seem to be up on Youtube. Also "Real Hot" is a monster of course

                    Jazz/latin covers hit the spot for me too

                    Rockfort Rock (El Cumbanchero)
                    Ska-ra-van

                      This is a great site listing JA covers: http://www.skaville.de/

                      there's loads of latin, jazz, etc listed.
                      It's always funny when something a bit 'soft' is given a tough JA treatment, like Doris Day "Perhaps" becoming Prince Buster "Don't Throw Stones"
