It's great, but wait

"This was my introduction to (authentic) slack key guitar and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's truly beautiful stuff. I originally bought it as background music for a luau party, but I couldn't stop playing it -- in the foreground. However the CD that is in release now has two bad/damaged tracks. Unless you want some really horrible noises coming from the speakers, wait to purchase this one. I had three copies of it before I just gave up (despite the wondeful customer service from Amazon.com). I ended up re-burning the CD without the damaged tracks. Wait for a re-release -- it will be worth it."
Totally beautiful tropical guitar music...

"When I moved to the Big Island in 1978, for what would become a stay of just over three years, the Beamers were the hottest thing on the Hawaiian music scene, due to their vocal version of "Honolulu City Lights." While their singing doesn't stink, the real magic is in the guitar picking, and this all-instrumental CD is just plain wonderful. This is worth serious attention with headphones on, and it's great in the background of parties or while surfing the net or doing the bills, or driving around your hometown on the Mainland, wishing you were on one of the islands instead. I can't imagine any music lover not relishing this collection: it's all pleasure, all the time. To tell the truth, actually living in Hawaii is NOT "all pleasure, all the time"---the bugs never die, it either rains too much or too little, depending on which side of the island one lives on, the economy is often weak, the costs of living are frightening, neighbors are often too noisy...many of the same troubles one has wherever one resides. But the music! The music depicts the paradise that in reality, only exists in part. Buy this CD, and your fantasies about Hawaii will be confirmed, which is not altogether a bad thing."
Real island sound

"i hsve to buy this cd pretty often because everyone that hears it falls in love with it, and it's a great present. i also use it when i teach sewing classes...it sets such a tone of happiness and tranquillity that stress levels fall and everyone can take in instruction so much more easily. this is the music i've heard coming from porches and backyards and parties all over Oahu. it makes me very happy."
