On this, Na Leo's eleventh album together, the trio again introduces new songs, and revives some old favorites. This "show" begins with a ballad by Lehua, the composer of such hits as "The Rest of Your Life" and "Flying with Angels," and ends up with a real "revival" song, "I'll Be Here 4U" by Angela. It makes you want to "lift up your hands, shout and sing." In between, there are covers of such hits as the Beatles' "With a Little Help From My Friends," "You've Got a Friend," "Lean on Me" and "These Dreams," and Jerry Santos' "Seabird." And there are new songs from Nalani, producer/songwriter Ken Makuakane, Daniel Ho, Zanuck Lindsey, Ginai Johnston and Marvalee Tahauri. These selections range from ballads, for which the three are most famous, to songs with a very infectious beat. "A Pocketful of Paradise" adds a special touch of aloha, and "Sugar Cane Shack" is just as "funky" as the shack itself. Throughout, you'll feel the warmth of friendship, their common bond, and the simple thoughts that have been their trademark in songs they've made famous.

Contemporary Hawaiian Music at its best

"I recently visited Hawaii and enjoyed listening to the local contemporary music stations. It was during this trip that I first heard NaLeo. I loved two songs, "Pocketful of Paradise" and "Sugar Cane Shack". I bought the CD and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the whole CD was great! This CD has a delightful mix of oldies, redone with an island feel, as well as some new songs. I hope that you enjoy this CD as much as I have. It has allowed me to remember my trip to the Islands whenever I put it in."
Good but not Great

"Na Leo is best at their original and hawaiian songs. "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "You've Got a Friend/Lean on Me" are not as good as songs like "Hawai'i Nei" or "Hapai Hula" or "Saving Forever". This is still an enjoyable album, but I don't like it as well as "I Miss You My Hawaii"."
