Tiki Terror

Now here's a weird one for exotica fans; one of the shadier budget LP lables, Viking, gained a reputation for repackaging their titles in countless different permutations over the years. This release by "Ugella and the Viking Pops Orchestra," Theme from Mondo Cane and Other Horror Music, features a strange marching-band version of Riz Ortolani's Oscar-winning theme ("More") and lots of tropical tunes passed off with ghoulish titles, all of which appeared earlier in a different sequence (with different names) on another LP, Chaino's Jungle Echoes. Capitalism at its finest! Calling this "horror music" is pretty dubious (unless hearing the name "Martin Denny" makes you run shrieking in terror), but it's one heckuva bizarre Halloween record-- and check out that cover!
