Track List & Samples(Tracks with sample are bold.)
Album NotesOne of the MOST classic Hawaiian albums, and possibly the point where island consciousness and music first touched a wider audience, THE GABBY PAHINUI BAND - VOLUME 1 was first released in 1975, and its return on CD is very welcome.
Recorded in 1974 in an isolated part of North Kona on the island of Hawai`i, this offers the real Hawai`i -- beyond the tourist areas, and the legacy of guitar music that was a century and a half old. Having Ry Cooder as a guest certainly helped it receive slightly wider notice at the time (and at almost every moment since its release, too), although he plays just a peripheral role. The emphasis is on Gabby Pahinui and his band and on the interplay of voices and guitars.
In addition to his sons, Pahinui's band included two world-class slack key players -- Sonny Chillingworth and Leland "Atta" Isaacs.
