Product Description

Taboo 2 is the acclaimed sequel to Lyman's multi-million selling Taboo Ablum, replete with his unique blend of vibe-drenched cocktail music and exotic bird calls. Trakc highlightss include: "Taboo Tu," "Sakura," "Love Dance," "Koni Au I Ka Wai" and more!

From the Label

TABOO 2, the 1958 follow up to Lyman's multi-million selling release TABOO, delivers the vibe-drenched cocktail music that hipsters and Lyman fans line up for outside of record shops. The mood is all exotica - tracks like "Jungle Fantasy," "Return to Paradise" and "Koni Au I Ka Wai" will transport the hifi listener to places far off, steamy and magical. The light, airy chimes of Lyman's vibraphone, an instrument similar to a marimba or xylophone, with metal bars and rotating discs that produce a vibrato, are the basis of his unique and tropical music and are complemented by four-mallet vibes, guitar and percussion. Joining Lyman are band members John Kramer, Alan Soares and Harold Chang. With the ukulele, flute, and glockenspiel rounding out the sound, all that's needed is a grass skirt and a lei.

The CD is good mellow atmosphere music that makes you feel lke your on the islands in a jungle tiki lounge, it is not that brassy intrusive sound like Martin Denny's music. You even have jungle sounds mixed in to add to the atmosphere.

Someone once wrote that Arthur Lyman never made a bad LP... and they were right. Everything he did was done from the heart and was just plain "good stuff". On this album in particular, give a listen to Taboo Tu (which he & his pianist wrote when they discovered they needed another cut to fill the session). Good stuff! Beautiful Kahana and Moon of Manakoora take you to paradise in a heartbeat. And his rendition of Ebb Tide is fabulous. Arthur Lyman was the King of Exotica!!

Rykodisc HiFi, does an excellent job in mastering these old Arthur Lyman recordings for CD. This particular release has some great tunes including Lyman's great takes on the classics "Moon Over Manakoora" and "Ebb Tide". Original liner notes are included and have technical details of the original recording. No details are given as to the CD transfer other than the name of the mastering engineer and studio. The clarity of sound has me convinced this transfer is from master tapes and not from lp.

...the sixth or seventh exotica record you get. That's okay, but start with the classics, then graduate to this. As far as Lyman goes, make sure you get the first volume of Taboo first -- it's one of the touchstones of the genre. Prior to this, you need:
Denny:
Quiet Village
Exotica
Hypnotique
Afrodesia
Baxter:
Quiet Village
Ports of Paradise
Eden Ahbez:
Eden's Island

Yes, Wow! Arthur Lyman and his group HAS to be among the greats as far as the exotica genre is concerned. From start to end, this CD is as good as it gets. Not a wasted or lame song. Their playing is exquisite - a tight-knit group. The production is first rate. I will be getting more of Arthur Lyman, you can take that to the bank.

I highly recommend this release!

My Dad had got this album and just Taboo when I was younger. I loved it so much. Then the record player became obsolete and I couldn't find it anywhere on tape. I gave away all the albums and was very sad about this one and a few others. I was thrilled to tind it on the kindle. I couldn't believe it. I love the music and it just makes me feel like I'm on some exotic island laying in the sand with my beloved husband. I'm not a kid anymore but when I hear this I remember my Dad and Mom and their trip to a few Islands in the tropics.
