|"a Story of the South Seas..."|
Ladies & gentlemen, here 's your captain speaking. We're leaving Tahiti tomorow morning, we hope you had good time here. You sure enjoyed our little tour of the nightlife with our host mr Eddie Lund. Tonight is your last chance to party and enjoy "UNE NUIT A TAHITI" (tahiti Records, 1960).
Another record produced by mr Lund, this time featuring Loma and her Polynesian Playmates. This Ep present the first tahitian band to tour out of Tahiti (Australia, New Zealand, Fiji...) to promote the "one night in tahiti" show. We already talked about the music and it's evolution in previous weeks but it's also interesting to mention Tahiti record made a pretty good point about printing their covers. Most of the time they avoided the expensive "full color" printing to go for Lp's with for full colors front (glued on the cover with only the back printed in black) and 2 colors design for ep's witch give a little special feel to their productions. This time is one of the rare occasion they give us to actually see the band.

For those who are too tired to go dancing, you can spend the evening with "Tabu", a silent movie by F.W Murnau (1931) wich was the first fiction movie ever filmed in tahiti.
