Best of Kalapana Vol. 1
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The 13 tracks on this CD present Kalapana's best and most accessible tracks in one neat single-disc package. This has all their most-played songs on Hawaii pop radio during their 70's run, splitting the tracks evenly among the two vocalists: Mackey Feary's light jazzy delivery is countered with Malani Bilyeu's wistful introspective crooning. Although this may lack a few important cuts such as the jazzy, experimental "Black Sand", I highly recommend this CD as an introduction to this group for those who like light romantic soft rock. The best tracks include "Night Bird", "For You I'd Chase a Rainbow", and the Hall & Oates cover of "When the Morning Comes.""

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The unique blend of island sounds, pop/jazz music set an unforgetable album. The song's, "Naturally", and "You Make It Hard", will forever remind me of home. Kalapana will relax, revive, and uplift your spirit every time you hear this wonderful album. Although, far from home this music takes me home everytime."
Hawaii's Golden Age of Soft/Pop

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation is the pinnacle of Hawaii's pop golden age in the seventies. The local-pop market here has since morphed with strong roots and raga-reggae influences. The late Mackey Feary's smooth melodies well represent island romance while Malani Bilyeu's voice flares with traditional island fervor. The lyrical content is simply skillful. The vocal harmonizations and instrumental mix are uplifting. Every track is a champion."
