Recent plans to go back to the islands for a short vacation have fallen through, so I’m left digging for Hawaiian records some 2500 miles away from Honolulu.
Can’t say that these albums satisfied my need to dig through bins at Hungry Ear, Jelly’s, Rainbow’s, and all the thrift stores on O’ahu. But it was a big relief to find three of these at my doorstep when I got home (i.e. eBay/internet finds). Expect more on these soon (maybe the Kalapana LP is already too well-known to post about, but who knows if something will come of it).
