Album Notes

(from the vinyl album's original liner notes):

"Electrifying...Never before has an ukulele sounded so rich and full...Perhaps the greatest ukulele player of all time..."

Such are the things people are saying more and more frequently about a young Hawaiian who taught himself to play the ukulele at the age of ten and subsequently developed a style both exciting and subtle, expert and varied. Withal, he refuses to take himself seriously and clowns while he plays. His ukulele is as often above or behind his head as it is in the traditional position. But his ability and skill cannot be camouflaged by any amount of buffoonery.

Here, then, for all who love Hawaiian music, is Nelson Waikiki, ukulele stylist extraordinaire, featuring selections with the freshness and sparkle of the blue Pacific which nurtured this gifted Polynesian.
