    You have an awesome site, there’s some real gems here. Thank you for sharing and helping keep this great music alive!! One suggestion, if you could add the date/year of the recording in your post along with any other notes that you might have about the album, it would be a great bonus. Beyond the music, I love the details involving these classic recordings! Thanks!

    Thanks for the comments! Sean, in the future I will try to include as much info as I can find…sometimes there’s not a lot to go on with some of the low-budget releases. Judging from the music style, I would say these albums are on the older end of the Hawaiian music spectrum. Kinney has quite a few 78s out and the Decca LP is the old-school “brittle” style similar to a 78.

    Benny Kalama is the real deal. Thanks.
