Format: Audio CD
Rounder Records has done a great job with this wonderful collection of Hawaiian acoustic steel guitar tunes from the Golden Age of the instrument. The tracks included here range from the lilting and sweet ("Waikiki Waltz") to ragtime style marches ("Hula Love Medley March" & "Ellis March"). And, lest you think the steel guitar was played in the Hawaiian style by Hawaiians only, the compilers of this collection have dug up German and Mexican recordings as well!
Considering that all of these tracks were transferred from ancient 78 RPM recordings, the sound of the disc is excellent. In fact, any surface noise from the original recordings (scarce as it is) really only adds to the nostalgic charm of these tunes.
There is quite simply no sound like that of the Hawaiian steel guitar and this disc captures and preserves many of its finest players in peak performances. The thoughtful folks at Rounder have also included fairly in depth liner notes - giving us a brief history of the instrument and information about each selection and the performers.
If you are a fan of early Jazz, a guitar aficionado, or just a lover of Hawaiian music, this disc will be a welcome addition to your music collection.

Format: Audio CD
A great collection of vintage Hawaiian recordings fromt he 1920s and '30s. Although this set includes plenty of great picking, the emphasis is on Hawaii's unique vocal traditions, including bright, poppy harmonies as well as the more striking (and sometimes inaccessible "leo ki'eki'e" (falsetto) singing style. Guitarist/archivist Bob Brozman curated this collection, which includes several rare 78s (including a couple that are notably scratchy, but hey, if Brozman says these are the best copies available, I believe him!) Includes stars such as Sol K. Bright, Kalama's Quartet, George Ku, Tau Moe and Sol Hoopii, as well as a few less well-known artists. It's another beautiful, elegant, lively set -- a lot of fun, and well worth picking up. Recommended!

I became mesmerized by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's voice in his "Facing" album, so when I found this CD in my public library,put out by the great Rounder Record Corp.,I had to give it a try. It evokes a beautiful place in years gone by, before all of the commercialization. Nostalgic and haunting and funky. IZ and this CD are 6 decades apart, but the spirit runs through.

THIS MUSIC IS SO SWEET AND INFECTIOUS, ANY CD THAT HAS SAM KU, SOL HOOPII, AND KING BENNY NAWAHI IS THE REAL, ORIGINAL POPULAR HAWAIIAN MUSIC FROM THE 1920'S AND 1930'S THAT PEOPLE LOVE TO HEAR. A NICE COMPILATION, EVEN THO' THE RECORDINGS COME FROM THE OLD 78'S AND THEY SOUND PRETTY SCRATCHY AT TIMES, BUT WHO CARES? WE'RE LUCKY THERE ARE ARE ANY COPIES OF THIS MUSIC LEFT AT ALL!

My mother use to play the "Hawaiian Guitar" in a group that played for a music teacher/store in St. Louis, MO. I got this for her for Christmas and she loved hearing some of the old songs played on that instrument.
