Eddie Lund & His Tahitians
"And here the fourth TAMOURE which leaves enunmoisa sorrow... While waiting cinquieme and the continuation... I think that it will be the maeillor: Because, more rapid that a Caravel, TAHITI invaded Paris in one night... Because for this insane night of the Holy Club Hilaire the TAMOURE has had gane its letters of nobility and the friendship of French the Paris Whole... of the islands it became Parisian! And I am on malgre the cold and the gray of the winter the sun and the chaleureaux sky of the islands will regneront On bets this season..."
From the Babelfish translation of the french on the back of the cover of this 45 EP I found many years ago at Brick Lane flea market. Some frantic ukulele playing and delightful vocal refrains make this a record to treasure!
Tahitian folk music sounds not unlike Hawaiian folk music but played at the wrong speed!
