Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from January 8, 2021 Options

Aloha" is a word found in all Polynesian languages meaning a spirit of loving togetherness. And that is what you will get every Friday morning as a rotating crew of Sheena's Jungle Room DJs (and special guests) spin three hours of relaxing exotica in all its forms, from the primitive to the Space Age. Can we get you something from the bar?

@Andrew
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Gaylord Fields:

Otis, in the '80s the Sally Ann bins were my go-to for collecting music I thought literally no one else was into. And then as the years passed I discovered the bins bare and the prices jacked up. Nonetheless, for the few I paid $50 and up in recent times, there are dozens I paid 50¢ for in the past.

Avatar 11:34am Otis Fodder:

It all balances out over time Gaylord, totally. Fond memories for sure, before the first RE/Search ISM books and space-age early-mid 90s reissues. I blame the Catalog of Curiosities for inflated prices. Haaaaa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am Gaylord Fields:

I haven't been to Rebel Rouser since pre-pandemic times! Maybe you and I should double-mask and meet up there!

Yess, that would be awesome!!
Avatar 11:36am Otis Fodder:

My go to in the late 80s was Rasputin's in Berkeley for cheapo bins, round about 1987-1989. Around the corner another shop Leopold's was the spot for hip hop too.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Rich in Washington:

I still have dreams of my first used record store - House of Vagabonds - with its 50¢ bins in its basement, just acres of records. I could spend an entire Saturday flipping through the crates. Just amazing records, too, as no one in the mid 80s cared about records anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Franco Twinkie:

Otis, In the mid- seventies I would sleep in my car next to Rasputin's. I was scared to sleep in Peoples Park.

Shangri - It's crazy how prices soar. A friend and I pre-ordered the box set through a local shop. It's such a fantastic set. Love Numero.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm notsoKWYET:

my roommate and I went to the beach almost every day this summer for the sunset... and we would bring a speaker and play tunes for people around us --- and as the sun started setting we would put on some exotica and then the big moment was when we rode our bikes alone the board walk... and this would always be the first song we played --- and people would be stopped in their tracks because it was such a mood and no one plays anything but loud in your face music in public anymore.
Avatar 12:30pm Little Danny:

I love that nsK! Nothing else quite like this version, in my experience.
Avatar 12:31pm shangri-lounge:

Good move, Otis. I'm hoping they'll reissue it. There are rumors! But, who knows. Luckily, it's easy to listen to on Spotify in the meantime.
Avatar 12:31pm spodiodi:

yeah, this song sounds great. great mood, indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm notsoKWYET:

@Otis - which boxset --- the one with Ebb Tide or the Technicolor Paradise?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Dance Of The Sea Monster is a great cut on this album. They get a lot more free jazz.
Avatar 12:36pm Otis Fodder:

Technicolor Paradise
Avatar 12:37pm Otis Fodder:

...but I also love the cabinet series too! www.numerogroup.com...
Avatar 12:37pm Little Danny:

It's a great album, Franco. Just free enough for me.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm notsoKWYET:

Love that NuLeaf comp Otis --- i used one song from it in my weather segment on Aloha --- can't remember if it got played
Avatar 12:38pm shangri-lounge:

Cool, I bookmarked that one on spotify Otis.
Avatar 12:39pm shangri-lounge:

I'm a fan of Numero's Wayfaring Strangers series, as well.
Avatar 12:39pm Otis Fodder:

NuLeaf is on my list to pick up. Have 4 others in the series, minus nu and synth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm notsoKWYET:

of course! the backroads country wayfaring strangers - with the neon sign --- is one of my favs
Avatar 12:40pm Little Danny:

Thank you Mx. Granny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm notsoKWYET:

@Otis - you must really be into the older Numero release Purple Snow - Forecasting The Minneapolis Sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm notsoKWYET:

Hi Mx Granny!
Avatar 12:41pm Otis Fodder:

Yes, very much so. Prince being one of my favs, picked up the box lps for purple snow.
Avatar 12:41pm Otis Fodder:

Shangri - I love Wayfaring. Favs would be Guitar Soli and Cosmic American

Avatar 12:45pm Otis Fodder:

Numero had that crazy $6 CD sale last year, picked up a 15 or so titles when they were moving cds out the door and ready to focus on vinyl. I love sales like that. I saw Dustygroove still have a lot of cheap Numero CDs too.

Avatar 12:51pm Constance De Witt:

Oh non, Leland, this kind of music brings me sad memories, sad memories of losing at backgammon.

Constance, I removed the Pecan Pie from the freezer and it is defrosting for after supper.
