DJ Muro Hawaiian Breaks

DJ Muro – Hawaiian Breaks

DJ Muro’s Hawaiian Breaks Tracklist now complete!

(I just need to add the little details, like release year, catalog number, record label)

ALOHA GOT SOUL is dedicated to the funky, soulful, jazzy sounds of Hawaii, so it’s only appropriate that I start with DJ Muro’s 1hr+ mix, “Hawaiian Breaks.”

Released in late 2009, the mp3 is available all over the internet by now. It’s got tons of great disco/funk tracks from the islands…But there’s no tracklist! So I’m sitting here, scratching my head, trying to figure out who sang what…

I’ve searched over and over and haven’t found a tracklist yet. So I thought, why not compile the list right here!? As ALOHA GOT SOUL progresses, I’ll continue adding to the tracklist as I discover more music. Feel free to contribute!

    I work with Al Nobriga, the songwriter of Hele on to Kauai and My Last Disco Song fame, here in Nashville. Our school is putting a feature article together about him, his music and his life. I can be contacted at the above email. He is currently recording an album here in Nashville. It includes a new recording of Hele on to Kauai, which he first recorded in 1973. The album will also include his latest compositions. Many people remember him from his days performing in Waikiki.

      Al’s music is the greatest. Tell him Joy says he should also do a new recording of “Canadian Girl”. He has so many great songs. Please let us know when his new album is available.I’ve been a fan/friend of his in Hawaii since 1974 and I love his music. He is so talented.

  2. Paul Edwards says:

    Carl, I have an original 45 record of Sand in my Shoes that I got from Al when he was at the Outrigger. My wife and I really enjoyed the many times we heard him perform.

    i have known Al Nobrigga since before I moved to Hawaii and lived in Canada. In fact, I like to think I am the original ‘Canadian Girl’. When I moved to Oahu, I called Al and told him I was coming and sure enough he was there from the very first day. I smile when I think of him, Imai and Jimmy playing at Cocks roost. I remember going out for a bite with Keoa and Al on more than one occasion after Cock’s Roost closed for the night. He is an extremely talented man who brought a lot of joy to my life. When Al left Waikiki with his wife to move to Nashville we lost touch. After moving back to Canada, I went back 3 years ago for a wedding and saw Imai up at coconut Willy’s. He told me Al was still in Nashville. I play the personal tape he gave me of ‘almost famous’ often. I miss you Al and wish you the very best. You of all people need to succeed in music so that your talent can once again be shared with others.

    Love u lots,
    Your sweet Canadian Girl

    I was fortunate to meet Al and Island Company when they came to Vancouver to do a show at one of the hotels. I was also glad to get together with the band at the Outrigger.
    I still have the original recordings of Canadian Girl, Hale Onto Hawaii and so on. These are special recordings from a very special friend.
