Another remnant from the sadly departed Sleepy Lagoon, this album has yet to get its due amount of attention from hunters of rare and unusual examples of Exotica. Księżyc na Tahiti (or Moon On Tahiti) is a classic exotic mishmash of Polynesian/Hawaiian fantasies with the occasional Oriental/Latin piece thrown in, all done in a dreamy easy-listening style that almost bubbles over into too conventional territory. It doesn't go quite that far into to tame homogeneity (if it did, I wouldn't be talking about it now), and a lot of that is likely due to its country of origin, a land less-often encountered in the annals of Euro-Exotica: Poland. The result does resemble a more typical 60's easy-listening exotica LP, but with interesting flourishes and more atypical coloring. It has that sort of alternate-dimension feel to it-- it seems like normal, but not quite our normal.
