PLEASE NOTE: The first show of the month was mistakenly said to be the Brazil show in an earlier email. That was instead a Pop & Exotica show. The mistake also has been corrected on Mixcloud.

Past shows from this year are now available to listen to in their entirety at: https://www.mixcloud.com/Flashfriend/

1) “Hawaiian War Chant” was sung in 1936 by Rudy Vallee. Prince Leleiohoku composed the original song in the 1860s as Kaua I Ka Huahua`i ("We Two in the Spray"), referring to two lovers meeting secretly. The 1936 version was composed by Johnny Noble with lyrics by Ralph Freed. This version can be found of the cinematic CD: Broadway’s Gone Hawaii.

2) “Hui E” was waxed in 1932 by the Coral Islanders and was fondly found on the complementary compact disc: Vintage Hawaiian Music – The Great Singers: 1928-1934.

3) “Retour d'Hawaï” was laid down in 1933 by the French lap steel guitarist Gino Bordin and appears on his ample of the universe. Virtuose De La Guitare Hawaiienne – 1930s Paris.

4) “Halei’wa Hula” was sung by Amy Hanai’ali’i Gilliom and taken from the superlatatious CD: 50 Greatest Hawaiian Albums of All Time/Honolulu Magazine Special Collector’s CD Vol. 1.

5) “Sunny Holiday” was performed by Slack-Key Guitar Master Kapono Beamer on his solar excursion of the same name, featuring Vernon Sakata on Guitar, Kimo Cornwell and Laslo Bencker on Keyboards, Dave Inamine on Bass, Larry Lieberman on Percussion and Bob Wilson on Drums. The Hawaiian musicians were recorded in Honolulu, the orchestra in Budapest and the whole thing was mixed in Munich.

6) The popular hit song “Endlessly” was written by Brook Benton and Clyde Otis and sung for us by the distaff vocal trio Na Leo on their chromatic recording titled Colors. The group consists of Angela Morales, Nalani Choy and Lehua Kalima Heine, supported by Tennyson Stephens on Piano, Marovic Esquibil on Keyboard Synthesizer and David Choy on Reeds.

7) “Islands” comes from the insular CD of the same name by Malani Bilyeu, who appears on Vocals and Guitar, and was produced by Kapono Beamer, who also appears on Guitar along with Dwight Kanae and Fred Schreuders as well as George Tave on Piano, Gaylord Holomalia on Synclavier, Rock Hendricks on Tenor Sax, David Inamine and Kata Maduli on Bass, and Walter Ricard and Wendell Ing on Drums.

8) “Sweet Pikake Serenade” was laid down by the Waitiki on their appetizing album: Charred Mammal Flesh – Exotic Music for BBQ, and features the song’s composer Randy Wong on Bass, with Tim Mayer on Reeds, Mr. Ho a/k/a Brian O’Neill on Vibes and Abe Lagrimas Jr. on Ukulele, Drums and Percussion.

9) “Garden of Mu” was recorded by the Swedish contemporary Exotica band Ixtahuele for their auspicious album: Pagan Rites.

10) “Hawaiian Eye (Reprise)” was composed by Jerry Livingston and Mack David and performed by Warren Barker & the Warner Brothers Star Instrumentalists for the television series Hawaiian Eye that was originally broadcast from 1959 to 1963, and is drawn with swizzle sticks from the bulging Box Set: Jazz on Film…Crime Jazz!

11) The classic surf song “Pipeline” was waxed by The Ventures and is daringly derived from the global conglomeration: The World of Surf Music. The title refers to Hawaii’s fierce ocean waves called the Banzai Pipeline, located off of Ehukai Beach Park in Pupukea, on O'ahu's North Shore.

12) “Hawaii's Not That Far Away” was performed by the Hula Girls on their creepsome compact disc: The Curse of the Tiki, featuring Spike Marble on Vocals and Guitar, Gary Brandin on Steel Guitar, DJ Bonebrake on Vibes, Lucas Vigor on Bass and Percussion, and Dominic Tucci on Drums and Percussion

13) “Blue Hawaii” was recorded by the surf guitar band from San Francisco, The Aquamen for their ambitiously titled album: Do the Alkeehol! (And Other Hits), including El Capitan Mike and Ensign Nat on Electric Guitars along with First Engineer Turtle on Guitar and Bartending, First Mate Srini on Bass, Lookout Steve on Organ and Percussion, and Cabin Boy Vic on Organ and Drums.

14) “Black Sand” was lovingly lifted from the righteous retrospective: The Space Cossacks -- Never Mind the Bolsheviks: The Best Of... by the surf guitar band from Washington, DC, who were active in the 1990s, spotlighting the talents of Ivan Pangoric Jr. on Lead Guitar, Mark English on Rhythm Guitars, Catherine Gray on Electric Bass and Doug Hoekstra on Drums.

15) “Castaway” came from the famed spoken word artist Paul Page, who claimed to have had the first Hawaiian TV show on the Mainland. It comes from a series of records produced to promote a chain of Tiki restaurants, using the name of each restaurant as the title of each song. This was piously picked from the historical document: Sven A. Kirsten Presents: The Sound of Tiki.

16) “Bondage of the Sea” by The Mermen from their album: Food for Other Fish, with the composer Jim Thomas on Electric Guitar, Allen Whitman on Electric Bass and Martyn Jones on Drums.
