CD Reviews

The sweetest falsetto Hawai'i ever heard...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not only is the mele overwhelmingly nani no ho'i, but when George begins to himeni the leo is more than nahenahe.. Only he can bring any justice to my favorite Hawaiian falsetto song of all time, Kalama'ula. Hu ka ue!I grew up listening to his amazing voice on my Mom's old vinyl; please don't pass up the chance to hear him on CD. Although his life & career was tragically shortened, George's voice is timeless. Any fan of Hawaiian music will tell you that George Helm was one of the greats.If you want the best male falsetto singing great Hawaiian music, look no further. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. The liner notes are well written with details (which happened to win a '97 Hoku award)."
George Helm was so underrated.

"The falsetto George Helm had was as amazing as his command of an extensive library of Hawaiian songs. Some of the songs he sang on this recording may very well have been lost. The voice of George Helm beckons from across time and to some folks has a different effect altogether.My family is from Moloka'i and my father was born and raised on the Ho'olehua homestead. My mom and dad knew George Helm personally is his "hanabutta" days. When my mom listens to George Helm's CD it brings back all kinds of memories of a brave man with a beautiful singing voice. More important than his music is what George Helm stood for in terms of getting the government to return Kaho'olawe to the people of Hawai'i. His death was a tragic loss to activism as well as music......"

"Classic recordings from a true Hawaiian, this is George Helm. Falsetto vocals unmatched in time, beautifully re-mastered in this album. His haunting vocals and instrumentations are beyond explanation. You have to sit back, relax and float away on this gorgeous Hawaiian wave. We lost George Helm at a very young age. Thank God we have this album to hear and remember him. This album is a true treasure. Highly recommended."
