Thanks for posting that Sabu. I love any Wayne de Fulton album. He is a classically trained harpist who is not afraid to throw out hit tunes of the day on his records as well as Hawaiian songs too! A great compilation could be made with the following records..................



Notice the different photo used in this album. It's the same record as Sabu's but Wayne looks a few years older! Weird!



This one is one of my favorites and also one of the most elusive Wayne de Fulton records.



Another great record. This one was recorded at the Captain's Galley in the Surfrider Hotel on Waikiki Beach.



This one was recorded at the LaRonde restaurant in Honolulu. It was America's first revolving restaurant. I wonder if it is still there?



Cool Japanese import album on Columbia Records.



Like the first record at the Warehouse, this album was released on Safari Records.

Enjoy,
Jeff

Unfortunately the LaRonde revolving restaurant no longer revolves, nor is it a restaurant. It's an office building, and where I've gone since 8th grade for orthodontic surgery and, more recently, adult dentistry.

Although not a restaurant album, the cover photo was taken in 1958 inside the Don The Beachcomber restaurant in Hollywood, CA.

Yeah, I'm a nerd.

I went on a Wayne de Fulton kick for awhile. His stuff is very interesting especially if you like harp music. Robert Maxwell is another favorite of mine that still hasn't seen any proper release on CD except for some tracks on the Ernie Kovacs disc.

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

Thanks for the information regarding that Outriggers album Digitiki. I was unaware that the cover was shot at Don's. Very Cool!!!

Cheers and Mahalo,

Well, I have gotten really lucky lately(and I have been willing to open my wallet)- picked up these Paul Page titles in the last couple weeks. The Pieces of Eight and Big Island were both sealed. The Reef Is Calling is signed. I have been looking for these for quite a while and all of sudden BAM!



Here is a completely non-tiki "restaurant" record. Classic...

Cheers and Mahalo,

That's a mighty fine album you have there.
That's my father, George on that album.
He made it when he was playing at the Hotel Lexington in New York. I think it was mid fifties.

Hi,
That's my father, George Hines, on the album.
He had the band at the Hotel Lexington for a while in the mid-fifties.
He also had the band at the original Roney Plaza in Miami Beach when they had a Polynesian show and dinner outside in the gardens.
They even built a stage with a large volcano that covered it.
They would open the show with one of the knife dancers blowing a conch shell at the top of the volcano. By the way, Kui Lee (I'll Remember You) was one of the knife dancers.
He later had the show at the Yankee Clipper in Ft. Lauderdale for several years (when it was still MAI KAI) and recorded an album.(my two brothers and I sang harmonies on several of the tracks)
He and I(I got a small portion of his talent) were the first haoles to play there.
We did the show and also played in the Molokai bar.

That album cover looks like it's in excellent condition!!!
How's the vinyl???
