With an assortment of titles like "Burma Train," "M'Gambo Mambo," "Bangkok Cockfight," "Dites Moi," "Jamaica Farwell," "Flamingo," and "M'Bira," it's apparent that Denny was trying to be all things to all people here. It is one of his more diverse outings, though, if only for the sheer variety of instruments employed. Say what you will about the cheesiness of this pseudo-world music, Denny deserves some sort of credit for bringing instruments like the m'bira, Burmese gongs, koto, Buddhist prayer bowls, and "primitive log from New Guinea" into the mainstream. They can all be heard on this album, and some of the cuts are among the artist's most rhythmic efforts. The entire LP was paired with its predecessor, Forbidden Island, on a single CD by Scamp in 1996.
