Werner Muller's 'Hawaiian Swing' album can be found on a CD 2-Fer (I've had mine for a couple years now):
It contains one of the most brilliant versions of Bali Hai I've ever heard (and I've heard many, many versions); practically a swingin' Polynesian spy theme.
Some of his other albums have thus been released. Unfortunately, it's the classic story of one crappy album with one exceptional album combined on one CD. But to have these recordings on CD they way they were meant to be heard is well worth the price.
Werner Muller is the German Esquivel. Just listen to his music and you'll know exactly what I mean! He was no doubt influenced by Esquivel
Look for other Phase 4 releases on CD. You'll be surprised how many are actually out there (or were).

I have a promo pressing of Werner Müller’s Cherry Blossom Time album. That goes very nicely along with the Hawaiian Swing LP.

An unknown (to me anyway) LP I came across a few years ago & have LOVED is "Hawaii-Beat a Go Go" by Frank Valdor & His Hawaiian-Beat-Sound-Orchestra. (I'm not making that up, I swear). It's a German record, and I do see it on ebay from time to time. It's a kinda of pumped up Tijuana Brass with a great steel guitarist, George De Fretes. Great stuff.
Waren Muller's "Hawaiian Swing"..a great LP..has been reissued on CD. Another good loungey-swing LP that has made it to Japanese CD is Sammy Kaye's "Swing & Sway In Hawaii"...a later recording (1960s) and considerably "groovier" than Kaye's earlier material.
Paradise is a state of mind.

As about as mint a copy as a guy could hope to find. I have not had a chance to give it a spin yet. Great exotic model and the PNG mask is cool as well.
