Paradise - Arthur Lyman

Paradise
Arthur Lyman
GNP Crescendo 606
1964

As with most, if not all Lyman albums, you can purchase/download this one.

Released on the heels of of Lyman At The Crescendo and followed up with Cast Your Fate To The Wind (a reissue of At The Crescendo). These two albums are pure Lyman exotica. This album features covers of many exotica favorites including Poincianna, Shangri-La, Pearly Shells, Baubles Bangles and Beads and Song Of India. Lyman charted with his single Love For Sale in 1963, so he was surfing a crest of success during this period with his brand of exotica.

Excellent stuff.
