Gene Rains - Lotus Land (1960)

Perfect for the hangover I'm nursing today. 
Gene Rains was a vibraphonist with a short lived musical career in the 1960s. Though not as famous as Martin Denny or Arthur Lyman, Rains' three exotica releases are crucial for anyone with a love for mini-umbrella tiki drinks.
