Expensive to produce Liberty book-fold package that includes a die cut cover and 4-page color insert.

From Billboard - October 17, 1960: The Slatkin Strings score handsomely here in a brilliant presentation of Hawaii. The production is designed to appeal to ear and eye, as the label has also taken pains to package the disk in a book fold set, with some gorgeous photos of the Islands along with descriptive copy. The songs which get the big string treatment include "Moon Of Monakorra"; "To You Sweetheart, Aloha"; "Hawaiian Wedding Song," "Little Brown Gal," etc. Cover has a colorful die-cut which makes for top display value.
