Sing Me A Song Of The Island - Alfred Apaka


Pagan Love Song

Sing Me A Song Of The Islands
Alfred Apaka
And The Hawaiian Village Serenaders
Decca Records DL 78960

From the back cover: No other voice expresses the romance and enchantment of Hawaii more eloquently than that of Alfred Apaka, a tall, handsome native of The Islands. Apaka, who has become quite famous as the singing star of "Hawaii Calls" and his countless appearances in the finest night clubs in Hawaii and on the mainland, came very close to depriving us of this and his many other great recordings. If he hadn't stepped out on a stage back in high school days and let a few hundred students hear his captivating voice, and if they and every audience after them hadn't clamored for more, he might have become a doctor. But since it has been said that a good smile is sometimes as therapeutic as a bottle of pills, Alfred Apaka may have come closer to realizing hie boyhood ambition that he thinks.
