The local NPR station was having a record sale today...






Picked up 59 Denny, Lyman, Baxter and Hawaiian albums and didn't even scratch the surface looking through the boxes!

I've been wanting to share some pictures of some of my LPs since this thread started..lol...FINALLY am starting. I'm just going to select a few rarities/oddities that might be of some interest for various reasons. No way I could post everything. I'm working on re alphabetizing a bit so, I'll post things up as I come across them. "Hawaiian" & "Pseudo-Hawaiian" first.
I love the artwork on this rare Pua Almeida LP. Many of his LPs aren't TOO hard to come across, and his music was widely played on Hawaiian radio, but because this one was on MGM, a mainland firm, and features an "orchestra", it isn't seen much here.


Here's quite an interesting Japanese gatefold LP: "Drum Hawaiian Drum" by S. Arita & New Beat....very mod 70s steel guitar w/ full orchestra and odd drumming intros thrown in. It doesn't really "work" (I mean, a version of "Blue Hawaii", "Red Sails In The Sunset", etc with drums?), but that's why I love it!


Nice cover from this German recording company. Great steel guitar featuring 28 "all-time Hawaiian favorites" arranged in medleys such as "By By Samoa," Bali Waltz," Unter den Sternen des Sudens," "Hawaiian Idyll," and "On The Beach At Suerebaya," etc., etc. A gem. Fred Artmeir & His Hawaiian Band.

More LPs from the collection....

Here is one SWINGING LP if you ever come across it. The guy rocks out on saxophone & is accompanied by a HOT steel guitar to "Hawaiian War Chant," "Song of India," "My Little Grass Shack," "Sheik of Araby," etc. Great jacket as well.


Beautiful artwork from a rare Alfred Apaka recording...made before the Hawaiian Village was a Hilton.


These guys, The Big Ben Hawaiian Band, an English group under the direction of well-noted Norrie Parramor, produced a series of about a dozen LPs of then-current pop tunes redone in a groovy "Hawaiian" style. Love all the LPs..."Una Paloma Blanca," "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes," Volare," "Spanish Harlem," "Cecilia, You're Breaking My Heart," "Good Morning Starshine," etc...they covered them all eventually.

A few more for today....

In a very Ted Haggard moment, the Blackwood Brothers seem overly happy that a handsome Hawaiian kane is greeting them....well, maybe since it's a gospel LP they wanted to avoid putting racy wahine on there LP jacket, but I rather like my first impression...


Here's an Italian oddity...apparently Santo & Johnny created imitators all around the world (I have imitator, cash-in LPs by the likes of "The Sleepwalk Guitars of Dan & Dale," "John & Jerry", and "Santo & Domingo.") Here, Andy Bono has produced a series of at least 5 or 6 LPs featuring trippy steel guitar covers of both American & Euro-Pop tunes of the 70s. Some of it is rather psychedelic, man.....


And finally today...
Just a pretty picture from a French Hawaiian LP "Reve d'Hawaii", "Hawaiian Reflections," or something like that..
