5.0 out of 5 stars A must for fans, October 30, 2004
This review is from: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole: IZ - The Man Behind The Music (DVD)
My only reservations with this disk are technical related to the sound being slightly off and some of the video being too reflective at some points. This may simply be a problem with the transfer from what is a TV production. I have e-mailed Mountain Apple and look forward to their response.

This having been said, this biographical program on Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole is an outstanding tribute to the unique Hawaiian. Family and friends tell of him from school until the time of his death. This is a history of a man and a music career.

This disk has bonus materials including the complete video of Over the Rainbow, two other numbers, and stories not included on the original TV program.

This is a very moving disk and the viewer walks away with a greater love and appreciation for a man who is just begining to be known on the mainland.

I cannot recommend this disk highly enough.

Mahalo Bro' Iz.

Mainland Fan says:
So right you are. I was recently introduced to the music of Iz just last week. I have watched every Internet video of this man and in a very short time I have fallen deeply in love with his music. Oddly so, I am moved to tears everytime I hear what I consider to be the most beautiful music this side of heaven. What this attraction with Iz is exactly, I cannot say, but it seems to come from a sacred place, deep within, and with a fire rekindled. In any event, this is why I am here from the mainland. I am drawn to the man behind the music, and I yearn to meet him. Since that is no longer possible, the DVD will have to do. Thank you for all the positive comments. I know you understand.
