...from my vacation. Can you guess where I was? Oh, that's right, Escape Goat already told you I went to Hawaii. To celebrate my return to the mainland, I offer music I picked up in Hawaii.
Nothing obscure here, I think everyone in Hawaii is required by law to own at least one copy of this CD. When Israel Kamakawiwo'ole died in 1997, "all Hawaii cried". As far as I can tell, this 1993 release, Facing Future, was his best selling CD. (This is the one with the medley Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World that most people are familiar with.) I'm really not a big fan of Hawaiian music, but this CD is quite nice. Iz, as he was known, had a really sweet voice.
I really don't have a lot more to say about the big guy. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm back, and that I'll be posting some of my more obscure vinyl here in the not too distant future. Aloha.
