I started ALOHA GOT SOUL out of a passion for this music. Every album I blog about is not in my record collection, and I don’t have a library of knowledge stored in my head either. I’m here because I want to learn more, discover great music and share what I find. In the future I’ll own these records if I’m lucky to come across them!
Which brings me to the album Lui, by Maui guitarist Lui Williams. What the full album sounds like is a mystery to me. So far I’ve come across two snippets: “My Lover” and “Oh, Oh (I Think I’m Fallin’ in Love)”. The first is a laid-back jazz track about longing for a certain someone. This makes me want to walk barefoot in the sand.
On the upbeat side is “Oh, Oh”, with twangy rhythm guitar accented by Lui’s own soloing (I’m guessing). Beyond the chorus is a single lyric, “I would like to know / What it’s like to be in love”. I’d like to know whether Lui dubbed his own vocals, or if background singers are helping him.
