Album Notes

Since their debut recording in 1976, the Mäkaha Sons of Ni`ihau have been regarded as one of Hawaii's top groups. They recorded some of the most magical and incredibly beautiful music on the planet. This anthology of tracks from earlier recordings, features some of their best...as well as the best of their lead singer -- Israel Kamakawiwo`ole.

UNFORGETTABLE captures the magic of the earlier recordings from Makaha Sons of Ni`ihau and Israel Kamakawiwo`ole with 16 tracks including "Paper Doll" -- a previously unreleased track from Israel Kamakawiwo`ole. The collection also includes new mixes of timeless classics and a different vocal track and new instrumental tracks for "Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World". Nine songs were selected from prior Makaha Sons of Ni`ihau recordings, and seven songs are from Israel's debut solo album, KA`ANO`I.

UNFORGETTABLE captures the magic of the Makaha Sons of Ni`ihau and Israel Kamakawiwoole.
