Lahaina Blues
Strolling In Lahaina With George Paoa
Arranged And Produced by J. K. Spencer
July 1977
Pua Kea Records PKRS 2001

From the back cover: This album is dedicated to my youngest daughter, Helen Kahanu Paoa, for which the song Honokawai Baby was written. Maui has been very kind to me and my family and also the many visitors and friends from all over the world. It was a pleasure for me and Pua to do this album arranged especially by my dearest friend, John K. Spencer, who got me my first job as a singer at the famous Niumalu Hotel in 1952. A special aloha to Herb Ono and staff of Sounds of Hawaii. – George Pace

According to Paoa's 2000 Honolulu Star-Bulletin obituary he played with Martin Denny.
