i still have this one on vinyl. what a scratched up noise of a disc it is. still brings back a lot of memories of my days in hawaii. it was just before i left hawaii, that the lead singer of country comfort, billy kaui passed away. that year hawaii also lost Robert Beaumont of Olomana, and in 1999, the passing of Thomas Mackey Feary Jr closed another chapter of hawaiian music. the good die young i guess. i still get home sick when i kick back and listen to waimanalo blues, the winds are gonna blow, so i am heading down that country side, singing my waimanalo blues. Aloha to all you hawaiian music lovers. ohana means family, regardless or color or creed. enjoy, kick back, sing along, and make-a bruddah. shaka

I love this music! I grew up in Waimanalo and used to listen to this music all the time. I actually knew Billy & Jimmy. I love the sound and feel of this band. It reminds me of when I was young and walking home from school slurping on a shave ice, or sitting at the beach and watching the swells come in. I'm really sorry this band can no longer play together. It is a real treat to hear "Waimanalo Blues" or "Hello Waimanalo" while sitting at my desk at work in California. It makes me homesick! If you want a taste of real Hawaii, try this CD. It's "da kine"! I also recommend Gabby Pahinui and Sunday Manoa.

In the 70's era of Hawaii's growing number of contemporary Hawaiian music, no other band sounds quite like this...a mix of jazz, folk and love songs blended well with the deep vocals of Billy Kaui and Country Comfort. Despite being a band cursed by controversy of drug use, they still have sound unmatched by any Hawaiian sound, and they easily rank up there with the great bands of the 70's;Kalapana, C&K, Olomana, etc.

The CD is a nice collection of the bands greatest hits, unfortunatly the original recording quality was reproduced instead of being digitaly mastered-all the original hiss can still be heard, an unfortunate drawback to being done on analog in the 70's.

Another downside to the collection - Theres many other collections out there, and many of them have the SAME songs repeated on them. I think 3 compilations have the song "Pretty Girl". I LOVE that song, but to have it repeated on multiple CDs...gets kinda old. HOwever if you can only buy one, this one is a GOOD choice. The only song I think you'll miss is "It does'nt matter anyhow".

Billy Kaui, lead singer of the group Country Comfort had one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. I became aware of this album just recently and I have played it over and over again, never tiring of listening to this wonderful group. I recommend this album to everyone who loves music and would call attention to the fact that this group from Hawaii, out of the 70s generation, did not receive the attention it deserved. All because we lost Billy Kaui at such a young age. Had he lived, I believe all America would know and love Billy and Country Comfort

Having lived in Hawaii for 17 years, I long for the classics. Country Comfort sings many of the old time, classic tunes that I've enjoyed for many years. Great CD!

This is a wonderful CD of music from the 70's in Hawaii...Waimanalo to be exact. I love every song and play it over and over. So sad that 2 of these guys are deceased and their sound will never be recorded again. If you love contemporary Hawaiiann music or just love any catchy tune...this album is for you. This is now one of my very favorite CD's and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Buy it and enjoy!!! If you love Oahu you will love this sound. And if you have never heard of Oahu you may still be delighted by this CD...melodic, lovely and happy.
Beautiful music.
