Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

Their "traditional" sound is augmented with space-age pop touches.

  1. NICE Hawaiian! Love the red vinyl!

  2. this album is so cool. FREDDY TAVARES was LEO FENDERS right hand man,he was partially responsible for the FENDER STRATOCASTER. He also was the steel player at the beginning of the LOONY TOONS song.

  3. Bob Nichols was my grandfather. I love seeing posts about The Polynesians. Mahalo! :) Pua

  4. I am enjoying this album. With anniversary of Fukashima disaster it's claim to blue is still true.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
