Well, the local SPCA thrift got a LOAD of Hawaiian LP's in from somebody... Two big storage buckets worth filled with at least 3-350 albums, mostly smaller-label stuff on 49th State, Waikiki, Sounds of Hawaii, etc labels.
A lot of doubles, triples, even quad's in there (surprisingly no Lyman, Denny, Baxter items), and two trips later I had all this:








One by Alfred Apaka's son:






A Hawaii Calls box set (3 prev. released lps):

One of a series - unfortunately, I only got the one before the others were scooped by someone else:

And a Charles K.L. Davis young - and c.20 years later -

Many more back at the thrift, but much less intriguing fare & lots I already have. But most are in pristine condition.
Now to find time to listen to it all...

AND on an unrelated note and no I don't have it but it was just brought to my attention - a Sandy Warner cover from an RCA Camden release in like Paraguay or something, using the same image from a Bob Thompson release:

Wow PTD - that looks like an almost mint cover on the Sumac Jivaro LP!

Here's another batch from that same SPCA thrift, with a few from a bi-annual record swap (still ain't seen anyone actually trade LPs at this thing...) thrown in.









- the Ia'Oe Ka La lps I re-found at the thrift in a far-off bucket on the other side of the room, so I now sort of have all three in the series (considerin there weren't more), but I say sort of as I found three copies of Vol.1, and all three had the Vol.2 vinyl in them! screw-up at the pressing plant, I'm guessing; and the George Kainapau is a nice little 10"...
There's still around 10-15 albums there that I don't have - along with 2x,3x,4x copies of several of the other LPs I've posted - but I think I got my hands full already, since I haven't even started listening to any of these yet...

Which brings up a question for Kaiwaza - any suggestions to what albums should be heard first?!

(And a PS about the bi-annual record swap this time 'round: HUGE disappointment regarding any Hawaiian/exotica. Out of 10's of thousands of LPs and I came across maybe 10 total, and they were in the 'greatest hits' range of Martin Denny and Lyman. The few I got that were anything special came from one guy's collection from his garage that otherwise would've filled a few volumes of "Incredibly Strange Music" by RE/Search [and yes, I cleaned him out pretty good!])

Wow, 29 days since I posted pictures of records in this thread? Fridays are usually record browsing day for me...here are a few from today...some Island, some Rockabilly, some Surf and a couple of what the hells!


















































I recognize a couple of Stray Cats here, minus Brian Setzer?

Later,

Todays find at an indoor flea market, I looked thru about 2000 albums to find these 8. I passed on several others that had either poor condition covers or discs. The seller told me he had at least 20,000 more albums in storage and invited me out to take a look in the somewhat near future.
Im looking forward to going down to my bar tonight and giving these a spin. I've already listened to the "Melodies From the South Seas" Its a great record with that typical steel guitar sound that everyone identifes as vintage Hawaiian music.

Today's thrift store find. GREAT cover artwork on this one! I do believe the Wahine on top of the organ console is handing him one of those crazy left-handed cigarettes!

I finally got around to doing something I have been thinking about for ages - working out how to display LPs. It's all very well framing albums and hanging them on the wall, but what happens when you get tired of looking at them? I wanted a way of displaying various LPs on a temporary basis, by artist or theme, so I could change them whenever I got sick of them. One piece of hardboard, 3 strips of plastic joinery (the sort you use for joining shower paneling together), and some superglue, and voilà; a display board that can hold two rows of LPs:



Jan and Dean were last week's display. This week, it's Dick Dale:



Changing the covers is easy - all you have to do is slide the old ones out, and put new ones in. I take the records out of the covers first to prevent any accidents.
