Hawaiian

You are currently browsing the archive for the Hawaiian category.

Found this 10 inch today at a yard sale — a 1951 release on the Pontiac label. No musicians are credited. A nice mix of Hawaiian tunes with that early 50s feel. Good for your luaus this summer.

Blue Hawaiian Waters

Bit of an oddball album here. The first track is a vocal rendition of the Hawaiian Wedding Song, fairly ho-hum, but the rest of the album is all instrumental steel guitar, and a few of the tracks even veer away from the islands and dip their toes into blues and country. Good stuff too. So if you are a fan of Hawaiian music, check this out, and if you’re not, but you like a good steel guitar tune, also have a listen.

Golden Guitar Magic

Here are three sides from a 1969 boxed set that has been Pleasure Programmed (TM) by the fine folks at a little-known magazine publishing house. I know what you may be thinking, “What does that magazine I see at the dentist’s office have to do with Guitar Magic and Pleasure Programming?” Everything my friend. Sit back and mellow out now. And seriously, these are pretty decent tunes. Have a listen:

Here it is. This one is not as clean as Vol. 1, but I did my best to clean it up. Check out Harbor Lights:
