"This CD is perfect for your backyard luau as the sun is setting. Laced with tunes more on the mellow side, it will lend itself beautifully as background music for any tropical soiree or vacation. I put this CD on tape and popped it into the tape deck of our convertible to enhance our most recent vacation in Hawaii! "Hawaii's Greatest Hits" lilted through the air as we drove around the islands! Tacky? Perhaps. Did it make our vacation even more memorable and fun? Absolutely! I heartily recommend it!"

"Just looking at the titles of the songs on this CD tells you that this is not REAL Hawaiian music. Oh, the music is nice and great for background. But if you're serious about Hawaiian music, Hawaii indigenous culture, both 'historical' and modern, then look elsewhere. There ARE artists who perform REAL Hawaiian music, and sing in Hawaiian. YOu can get 'historical' music, there is an excellent 2-CD set from the U-Hawaii. The Maui Historical Society just across from the Banyon tree in Lahaina carries modern REAL Hawaiian music, the [local store] in Kahulaui also offers great choices. The Bishop Museum in Honolulu has some good CDs too. For modern music, look up Amy Gilliom or the slack key guitar masters, or Keola Beamer... Amazon has them listed."

"Bought this for my wife. Now she can't get it out of my CD player. Classic Hawaiian music. Sitting on your deck out back at night with a tropical drink in hand brings back FLOODS of memories of numerous Hawaiian vacations. This makes me want to go back!!"
