Track List & Samples(Tracks with sample are bold.)
Album NotesBill Ali`iloa Lincoln shared his musical talents with a grateful Hawai`i for over sixty years, composing poetic Hawaiian language songs, performing on `ukulele, guitar, bass & piano, singing, dancing & teaching hula, plus producing & performing in Hawaiian shows around the world.
More than all that however, it is Bill Ali`iloa Lincoln's strong & clear voice that will always be remembered, climbing from bass to baritone, then from tenor to falsetto & finally to an even higher falsetto register. Bill Ali`iloa Lincoln was on of those few Hawaiian male singers that mastered the ability to sustain a lofty note to its outer limits, grab a split second gasp of air, soar to an even higher register, and then dance in that rare air with utmost control & grace.
This collection of 20 songs -- vintage 1930s to 1970s -- typifies the best of the Hawaiian hula & the best of an amazing Hawaiian falsetto singer.
