Liner notes come with 3-D glasses and the photos leap off the page. A first!

Liner notes by Keawe Lopes:

Ikaika Blackburn is a musician's musician and entertainer's entertainer. Gifted with a beautiful voice and an impeccable ear for music, this young, yet very seasoned talent brings a delight to Hawai`i's musical legacy.

A true son of Maui-Nui-a-Kama, Ikaika gifts the pu`olo of mele that take you on lyrical journeys throughout its pana `aina, accompanied by a true feeling of dignity and pride.

He venerates those close to him with poetic expressions that are enhanced by a delivery of pure nahenahe.
