Thanks Swanky! Is Sam Makia a haole? Some of the pronunciation makes me wonder. Nice stuff. Mahalo.

Sam Makia isn't the singer on any of the songs. He was the houuse band leader at the Hawaiian Room in NYC I think for a long time. The other records of his I have are instrumentals.

Swanky, how are you doing on receiving donations? You got my contribution last month. I'm just wondering on the frequency you may need from frequent downloaders like me.

Carl Howard (You MUST Space Patrol!) pointed out that some of the songs on the iste are ripped at very low quality. My error. I have redone them all and they are all now top quality. So, if you previously downloaded these tracks (except the extras) do so again for minty fresh quality!

Hey Swanky, your Hukilau page won't load for me. Is it just me, or is the site down? The Swank Pad site won't load as well.

Thanks again for the great downloads.

Everything is fine. Maybe a local issue on your end. Server has been up and running with only seconds of down time for months.

Aloha TC!
My music share has gone poo-poo-ly (crazy). That site is linked all over the place and it's doing a Gig a day in downloads. Too much. And the donations are few and far between. They don't balance it out. So....
I started this really for the ohana. From now on, there will be two pages, public and ohana. The public page will have a much lower quality set of songs and hopefully it will allow me to stay out of trouble with my ISP. I will post the high quality songs page here for you guys.
Please do not link to this page at all. It's just for the TC ohana. If it gets put out on the web, it'll just have to be removed completely.
The only way to get to the high quality share is at:

www.hukilau.org/songs/ohana.htm

Mahalo!

Swankster

Your note made me realize that I have still not gotten off of my cyber-ass to send in my donation for all of the great tunes you have made avaliable to us here at TC. PayPal is such a wonderfull thing! Keep it up, we do appreciate it all.

Very sorry to hear you have not been receiving enough financial help. Just shameful that we could all lose the whole thing because of lack of consideration by some freeloaders.

Do you still need to acheive that extra $25 a month or is it higher now? This month's donation is already sent.

$25 a month will cover it. I'll keep it as is for now. I may chaneg it so that those linking to the site will have to navigate through other sites to get to the songs. We'll see how it comes out at the end of the month. I am already over limit for this month.

The site has been shut down, something posted about the digital copyright laws. Too bad, was looking forward to some new music.

It's still unclear what has happened. If you know my views on it, you know I think it's a load of crap. Go to my site www.swankpad.org and at the bottom there is a link to the blog and what I think of the music industry. BUT...

My site is on a very good friend of mine's server. His upstream provider apparently got a notice from the RIAA or someone. Just the threat of it is enough to pull the plug. His provider could shut down his entire server over this. They could stop all his business. And, for that matter, the RIAA could shut down his provider. All that means, out of total fear of the swift actions the RIAA has gotten through the DMCA, we had to pull the plug. Regardless of whether we are right or wrong. Before anyone could try to prove anything, the business would be shut down.

What's truly odd is that the email came from his provider. The IP address the email came from was theirs. When he called to find out what the complaint was or who it was from, noone said they sent the warning email. So, we are not clear if there actually was one. But, you have to be safe rather than sorry when it's your business.

They are thugs.

But I think their time is short. The music industry is going to go under. I hope it's very soon. I hope a business replaces it that is run ethically and with a real business plan, not a monopolistic abusive plan.

In my opinion, I am doing the same sort of service FM radio does. I am getting their music out there. I am spreading interest in music that is collecting dust out there for them. And maybe there is enough call for a re-issue and they can sell it again and we can get a nice copy of this 40-60 year old music. Clearly, they are not selling George Cates Polynesian Percussion any more. There are no sales to hurt!

Swanky, I'm sorry to see that a decision was made for you regarding the future (past, now?) of the downloads. Thank you again for your generousity. The fortunate lot of us got to learn about some really great music. I hope we supported you enough while it going.
