Memories Of Hawaii - The Hilo Hawaiians

Hula Twist
Memories Of Hawaii
The Hilo Hawaiians
Decca DL 4316
1962

From November 10, 1962 Billboard: Here's another album from Decca for Hawaiian music fanciers. The set is beautifully performed and features singers and musicians working for the most part in their native language. The set is light and tastefully done and was recorded in the Islands. The repertoire is very authentic sounding and features traditional instruments with steel guitar and vibes. For change of pace, a "Hula Twist" and "Hawaiian Cowboy" are also included.
