Just found the site in search of the very thing you're looking for - doesn't look too good but I'll just join you here waiting for the day.

I just discovered Gene Rains, WOW!

I LOVE dat guys work. Really great stuff!
I found a record on E-bay for $99.00
I almost bought it. Problem is, I'd have to drive all the way around the island, to Puna, to my friend's house, who has a turn table, to listen to it!

Think I'll PM swanky.......

My absolute favorite is "Rains in the Tropics". That album is on heavy rotation at the DigiTiki household. "Far Across the Sea" is a very close second! Its a shame ther is still very little known about the guy.

So, I'm totally clueless about getting music off news groups. I'm still interested in getting Gene Rains on CD. I can trade an art print.

Thanks so much Tiki-Tim for the kind offer. However, I received a PM from someone before you and I accepted a trade with them. I may later hit you up though, when I finally break down and purchase a I-pod. Thanks again, and Aloha!
