Tempos Of Tahiti

Theme From Mutiny Of The Bounty
Tempos Of Tahiti
The Catamaran Serenaders
21 Channel Sound
MGM E 4091

I didn't have high hopes for this record. The cover just didn't spark the collecting juices, however, this is the typical layout for a 21 Channel Sound cover. The album is designed as a book-fold after a trend set by Enoch Light's Command label. However, the set is good space-age fair.

From Billboard - December 8, 1962: Spectacular sound and orchestration make this one of the top collections of Island music, perhaps in part because of the 21 separate channels used by MGM in taping. Most of the tunes are Hawaiian rather than Tahitian in origin, but all are done in lively and listenable fashion that should earn plenty of air play. Included are two themes from "Mutiny On The Bounty."
