1) “Taro Patch Twist” was composed by Lehua Kalima Heine, who is one third of the vocal trio Na Leo – along with Angela Morales and Nalani Choy – from their chromatical compact disc: Colors, supported by Tennyson Stephens on Piano and Marovic Esquibil on Keyboard Synthesizer.
2) “Slack Key Music Box” was taken from the recorded reverie: “Moe’uhane Kika – Tales From the Dream Guitar,” which was composed by Hawaiian Slack-Key Guitar master Keola Beamer, inspired by his wife’s music box collection.
3) “When Hilo Hattie Does the Hilo Hop” the 1936 song by Don McDiarmid and Johnny Noble, was sung by the celeritous celebrity with her own clothing line, Hilo Hattie (Kalapa Clarissa Haili, a/k/a “The Hooligan of Hula”) With the Royal Hawaiian Girls Glee Club, found on the ample anthology: Territorial Airwaves – Radio Hula.
4) “Princess Poo-Poo-Ly Has Plenty Papaya” was sung by Debby Boone on the cool compact disc by Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack called: Shake Those Hula Hips, featuring the musical conglomeration organized and led by Matt Catingub.
5) “Bon Bon” was daringly derived from the 1960 rhythmical recording by the famed Joe Loco (whose real name was Jose Estevez), appearing on Piano on his 1961 lunatic LP Going Loco, with Jose Lozano on Flute, Bayardo Velarde and Rudy Calzado on Vocals, Jose “Chombo” Silva, Gonzalo Martinez and Felix Legaretta on Violins, Mongo Santamaría on Conga Drums, Nicholas Martinez on Guiro (Percussion Scraping Gourd) and Willie Bobo on Timbales.
6) The 1954 propping production “Boppin' With the Mambo” by The Sultans comes from the historical document: Mambo Jukebox – Rumba and Afro Latin Accented Rhythm & Blues 1949-1960.
7) “Sorte” or “Luck” in English, written by the Cape Verdean composer Teofilo Chantre, was sung by Cesaria Evora on her superblatitious CD: Café Altlantico, referring to her home in the Cape Verdean city of Mindelo, where she frequently entertained guests. The instrumentation includes Cavaquinhos, which are the ancestors of the Ukuleles.
8) “Baila Ole” was performed by Alma Gitano and was collected on the concupiscent compilation: Cosmo Mix.

10) “After Pizza” by the Italian musician Sam Paglia was drawn with swizzle sticks from the copious collection: Far Out – Swinging Bachelor Pad Music.
