Al Perry’s Favorite Chants & Hulas (from vinyl LP)

Al Kealoha Perry and the Singing Surfriders “Al Perry’s Hawaiian Chants & Hulas”

Here’s a pdf of a booklet that came with the record!

It looks like that booklet was for a 78 10 inch record album with the same songs as side A. The “Chants”. I’m guessing there is also a 78 album of the “hulas” on side B..

Side One: Chants

  1. Pua Hau O Maleka
  2. Pele
  3. Kalanianaole
  4. Kalakaua
  5. Lanakila
  6. Ta-Hu-Wa-Hu-Wai

Side Two: Hulas

  1. Poki
  2. The Hula Oni Oni E
  3. Hawaiian Cowboy Polynesian Love Song
  4. Twilight In Hawaii
  5. Under A Spreading Cocoanut Tree

Felix Mendelssohn and His Hawaiian Serenaders

Here’s a few British records by Felix Mendelssohn. It was hard to find good discographical info online about these but I believe they were made between 1940 and 1943. I’m sure if you were living in Britain at that time a bit of Hawaiian escapism would have been a welcome distraction.

Ray Kinney “Songs of Hawaii”

Decca Presents “Songs of Hawaii” Played by Ray Kinney and His Hawaiians. (1938)

I bought this album in Honolulu. These were the only 78s I found there on a trip in December. The cover and records were dusty and water dammaged, but the records actually cleaned up nice and sound pretty good. It was missing one record of the 5 and I recently found a replacement. So here is the complete album set!

As you can see I have rather sloppily stop the cover from decomposing completely with some packing tape… I know.. not the most archival way to save something, but at least the dust and mold wont be getting all over the records anymore..

Kuu Ipo Ika Hee Pue One Medley

Kuu Ipo Ika Hee Pue One Medley by S. Siegel & Marie Caveny

1919 Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder #3724 ( Played on an acoustic Amberola 30 phonograph)

The name of the song is Hawaiian. The song sounds more like a banjo number. apparently it’s Mandolin and ukulele duet.. The record skips a little in there somewhere.
