Well, I had a great time at Hukilau but left my George Cates Polynesian Percussion CD in the rental car when I returned it.

Someone on TC sent it to me years ago. I don't remember who.

Does anyone have the digitized tracks they could snail me.

I could trade something or just pay.

It is too bad I lost the copy. It was de-popped and de-hissed. It sounded great.

Thanks for any help or leads.

Im a Lawrence Welk (and George Cates) fan so Ive been trying to hear this album for some time. Thanks to a post in a different thread, I was able to find a website with digital copies of the all tracks. It really is as wonderful as I imagined it would be.

or you could go here:


Found a 99 cent vinyl copy ages ago, and it's always been one of my faves. Thrill to the Space-Age sounds of the Novachord! Apparently a kind of early synthesizer.
