sorry, I only have the vinyl too, and no way to digitalize it. Maybe you could ask Lemonsqueezer or Kahuna Kawentzmann ?

There is an amazing amount of Eddie Lund LPs out there. I have a few dozen & keep running across more. As the guy was from Washington State, I can't help but wonder if most of these songs are actually folks songs that he simply copyrighted. I mean, I'm sure he wrote SOME Tahitian songs, but, I think these can't possibly all he his handiwork. I know on some LPs individual artist names are mentioned performing certain songs, although the jacket front always simply says "Eddie Lund & His Tahitians." I know he used artists that were known in Tahiti already.
I'm not discrediting him here, I'm just making a comparison by calling him "The Webley Edwards Of Tahiti."
