Paradise calls and Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille are island hopping in Hawaii in this 1978 Captain and Tennille
television special. The beautiful scenery in this exotic locale fits right in with the duo's assertion that "Love is Spreadin' Over the World" and guest stars the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau, Kenny Rogers, David Soul, and Don Knotts add to the overall sense of diversity that pervades this production. A special filled primarily with slower, mellow songs that are pleasant if somewhat underwhelming, this DVD comes across as more dated and less appealing to modern audiences than other specials released at the same time like Captain and Tennille--The Christmas Show
and the Captain and Tennille Songbook
. Still, the scenery is wonderful and performances like Kenny Rogers' "Love or Something Like it," Captain and Tennille's "I'm On My Way" and "Ka-Ding-Dong," David Soul's "Tomorrow's Child," and the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau's "My Flower" are very listenable and might just conjure up some long-forgotten memories. Sound options include stereo, the original mono, digital 5.0 surround, and optional 2007 commentary by Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon. --Tami Horiuchi
