Information and notes on the back album cover includes the following:

The Hawaiian Islands sparkle in the Pacific like precious stones scattered on jeweler's velvet. To mainlanders, they are enchanted isles of shimmering white beaches, crystal lagoons that turn sapphire blue in the deep parts and long racing waves that have traveled thousands of miles before touching a shore. Names like Oahu and Waikiki suggest idle days spent beach combing under a warm sun and exotic nights where the only sounds are the whisper of the wind in the palms and even softer sighs of romance.

Today many mainland tourists visit the Hawaiian Island every year, still more count their future travel plans to the Islands among their most cherished dreams.

But until that wonderful day ... ? Until then, there are other ways to conjure up the charm, grace and sheer joy of Hawaii.

Care to try? You can ... simply by starting this record spinning. For the music in this album has one purpose - to bring alive for you the distant beauty of the Hawaiian Islands.

Imagine the strum of a ukulele. Now the distinctive sound of steel guitars is added, then the hypnotic throb of drums. In a moment, other sounds appear from nowhere, from the imagination itself. The boom of a breaking surf. The splash of a paddle from an outrigger canoe. The distant laughter of people enjoying a walk on the beach in the cool of the evening. The rustle of a grass skirt as a young girl sways through the delicate movements of a centuries old hula.

You'll find this album catches the authentic note of Hawaiian music - the "aloha spirit". The lovely word aloha means both hello and farewell. But it also conveys affection, understanding, tolerance and love. It is these subtle qualities that are found in this album. Try it and see.
