Album Notes

Moonlight shines down on Waikiki Beach, the surf rolls lazily to shore, while overhead can be heard the rustle of palm fronds caught in the evening trade breeze.... From the hotels and clubs back of the beach and along Kalakaua Avenue come the exciting sounds of Hawaiian entertainment -- romantic singers, steel guitars, lovely hula shows...

This album recalls for the most part a golden and elegant era -- the 1920's and 30's -- when so many unforgettable Hawaiian recordings were being produced. Small, traditional groups are heard alongside sophisticated "big city" orchestras. However, the magic of the South Seas breathes through all of them. Liner notes give extensive historical information about the musicians, but contain no lyrics.
