Another tropical twofer from Martin Denny! Quiet Village from 1959 was the second biggest-selling album of his career, hitting #8 thanks to the title cut (the hit 7" version is included here). The Enchanted Sea , also from 1959, was (as he explains in the liner notes) his tribute to his new home on Oahu. 25 lush tracks!

I have the record (at least 40+ years old) one of my all-time favorites, and decided to check on the availability for my kindle fire.
I am really pleased that it is still available. Not only is it great but the tunes hold lots of memories of Hawaii (International Market Place as it was 40 years ago (restaurants etc) and it's just great.
Unfortunately, I found to my detriment that the version of 'Quiet Village' that's on this CD is not the version the radio station always plays. I was highly disappointed, and forced to visit Youtube to find the rendition that I enjoy.
Otherwise, it's solid record. Do be aware that the artist likes using a lot of canned sound effects from the jungle (various monkeys, tropical birds, and other animals). If you're looking for island getaway music, you can't go too wrong here.
