Here are some recent finds. A few are from ebay and a few were from a recent daytrip over to Kailua town to shop in some of the antique stores. I really haven't been posting new finds here and it dawns on me I really SHOULD as I enjoy seeing every one elses!


Japanese record. Fascinatin' Hawaiian music by S. Oppachi & His Sounds.


2 LP Japanese gatefold, Hawaiian mood music collection by Grand Fantastic Strings


Micronesia: A musical glimpse, uncredited native artists from Thee Marshalls, Truk, Ponape, Palau, Yap, The Marianas, THe Gilberts.



Always happy to find volumes of Souvenir Songs of Hawaii by 49th State Hawaii records that has songs I didn't have already. These are vols. 17 & 18 and contain my NEW old favorite song "Take a dreamboat to paradise" by June Ululani Leite.


Japanese record. Honeymoon in Hawaii by The Hilo Island Kings.


Sounds like Hawaii by The Changs.


Groovy lounge stuff. Kit Samson's Sound Advice at The Maile Lounge, Kahala Hilton


Tahitian instrumental group, with Hawaiian steel guitar. Nice stuff. Takiti Ma, vol. 5 by Takiti Ma


Live from The Kahiki by The Beachcomber Trio. 2010 release of recordings made in 1965. Martin Denny-esque.


Japanese record. Hula nova by Tatsuo Okhashu.


Polynesian romp, vol. 1 by Bill Sevesi & His Islanders. There must be a volume 2 out there somewhere, right??



Pearly shells by The Mokambo Combo at a resort in Fiji.



This was a curious album I'd never heard of or seen before, picked up cheap at a local surf/Hawaiiana shop. Instrumental organ with drumming, essentially, out of Quebec.

Listen to these and more at my hobby online station "Hawaiian Hi-Fi"

Recent finds:
I've had the CD of this for years, but I've been waiting to get the vinyl at a good price & I finally did. "Jungle Exotica", strip tease type singles by various artists. Of course, the cover art is amazing.



Yet more Hawaiian vinyl from Japan. A double LP gatefold by the instrumental group, The Hawaiian Echoes "Hawaiian Best Collection" from 1975.



So, I've been buying SO MANY Japanese Hawaiian records lately...someone in Japan is unloading a lot of them on ebay and I've been bidding & winning quite a few of them. Needless to say, shipping from Japan is rather high. I have even more in the mail on the way. I decided I needed to go on a "vinyl ban" and break out the ramen noodles for the next month. Like an idiot, I went to a local record shop, Jelly's, thinking I would just check out the $1.00 record bin only for some lounge music. I did find a few things & then made the mistake of saying "Well, it would silly not to at least look at the Hawaii/Pacific section. Of course, there were TONS of these very exotic Tahitian records there that WEREN'T there before. Some beautiful, very good condition 1950s ones, and several of the glossy, gorgeous Barclay & Manuiti record label LPs...everything was reasonably priced between $4-$7 each. And I HAD to get everything I didn't already have. I mean, chances are slim to none I'd ever find these again & in such great condition. The clerk was like, "Yeah, it's kind of crazy we got all these in as we seldom see Tahitian stuff coming through." So, I got a dozen. Is there anything even CHEAPER than ramen noodles??? I just couldn't pass them up.
































And there was even the elusive Eddie Lund Tahitian Christmas LP for $4.00.

Someone in Japan was listing a bunch of Hawaiian LPs recorded in Japan, and I couldn't resist. Plus, an interesting German release.
"Go With Me To Hawaii" by The Samoa Serenaders, Cornet, no date. Love the cover on this one.


I was really happy to score yet another "Takiti Ma: Intrumental Ukulele, Guitar & Co." record. I had gotten one many years ago and never really saw one again until recently, when I've managed to get two recently. This one is Volume 4, and like the others, it's nice Hawaiian style instrumental renditions of Tahitian songs.
"Takiti Ma: Instrumental Ukulele, Guitar, & Company, Volume 4" Manuiti records, no date.


"Hawaiian Best Album" by Ginji Yamaguchi, steel guitar. Polydor, no date.


"Hawaii, Hawaii, Hawaii" by Hiroshi Wada (steel guitar) & The Royal Hawaiian Boys. Toshiba records, no date.



"Buckie Shirakata Hawaiian Dance Party" by Buckie Shirakata & His Aloha Hawaiians. Teichiku records, Social Dance Series, no date.


I don't think I've ever heard of the instrument "electone" before. Sounds rather like a cross between a piano & an organ. Yet, this is the second "electone" Hawaiian LP I've come across recently. Perhaps it went through a brief period of popularity. I seem to recall seeing a Jackie Gleason LP that may have featured it also.
"Hawaiian Best Album By Electone" by Yuri Tashiro & Hawiian Group. Crown, 1974.


This is a really curious LP. These are standard orchestral Hawaiian selections, but they are layered with various sound effects & a female narration describing various excursions, sights, including shopping, airport arrival, moonlight beach walks, etc. Put out by Japan Air Lines (JAL).
"Blue Hawaii/South Pacific: JAL Travel Sound Series" by Mr. Y.K. & The Blue Strings. POlydor records, 1981.


"Hawaiian Golden Hits" by Ethel Nakada. Toshiba records, no date. Noted singer of Hawaiian tunes from Japan.



I like the cover on this this. First time I think I've run across coolats on a Hawaiian record.
"Hawaiian Symphonic Mood" by The Polydor Symphonic Orchestra. Polydor records, no date.


If you're interested in this type of music, you enjoy listening to my hobby online station "Hawaiian Hi-Fi", which is free to listen to 24/7.

A few of my recent finds. Guess which one I bought jut for the jacket!



p.s. I think that Perez Prado's Voodoo Suite may have been bought from new member Adam Aku Aku at Tiki Kon and he threw in the Drumbs around the World lp just because he thought it was under appreciated. thanks!
