One night Babalik Ka Rin - Arthur Lyman - Taboo Vol. 2 had "had a little to drink," and when they began playing the theme from Vera CruzLyman let out a few bird calls. It was great. When Denny's "Exotica" album was released on record in it became a smash hit, igniting a national mania for all things South Pacific during the lead-up to Hawaii becoming a state, including tiki-themed restaurants like Don the Beachcomber 's and Trader Vic'sluaus, Oceanic artexotic drinks, aloha shirtsand straw hats.
That same year, Lyman was persuaded by Henry J. Kaiser to leave The Get It Now - Skindred - Union Black Denny Group to form his own group, continuing in much the same style but even more Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - Unknown Artist - Beatles Harmonier (Beatles For Babies).
