VariousAloha Got SoulSoul, AOR & Disco In Hawai'I 1979 to 1985 ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Sweet soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – a surprisingly strong source of well-crafted, warmly-produced grooves – all with a special sort of sparkle that reminds us a lot of the best Bay Area or LA sounds of the time! There's a sunny vibe to the music that really belies its roots – a blend of jazz, soul, funk, and more – all handled with production that's few notches down from the slicker AOR material of the period, which still lets all the more soulful currents shine through nicely – and which keeps all this stuff from ever sounding too commercial. Given the cultural cross-currents taking place on the islands at the time, there's a surprising mix of backgrounds to some of these groups – which results in a unique sound that's nicely colorblind, and which stands as a bit of a contrast to some of the more defined scenes on the mainland. As always with Strut Records, the track selection and presentation is wonderful – with plenty of notes that illuminate the music – and titles include "Sparkle" by Greenwood, "Get That Happy Feeling" by Lemuria, "Countryside Beauty" by Tender Leaf, "Yesterday's Love" by Aura, "Kawaihae" by Brother Noland, "Feel Like Getting Down" by Nova, "Love One Another" by Mike Lundy, "Coast To Coast" by Rockwell Fukino, and "Call Me" by Hal Bradbury.

VariousFrom These Shores – Otherworldly Music & Far Out Sounds From Hawaii ... LP
Aloha Got Soul, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $18.99
A really unusual little compilation – hardly anything that you might expect when you think of Hawaiian music – but that's kind of the lesson we've also been learning from the Aloha Got Soul label! Instead, the package brings together obscure recordings from the island state – tracks from the 60s, 70s, and 80s – many of which fall into a unique space that's really beyond any sort of easy categorization or genre – described on the cover as "sun-tinged folk" and "soft psych" – two phrases that only get at the tip of the iceberg of what's going on! Much of the music is laidback and mellow, but also has a sunny, breezy vibe that ever keeps things from being too sleepy – maybe touches of Cali soul and rock in the post-folk, post-Sunshine Pop world – but with a special sound that's as far from that scene as Hawaii is from the mainland. Titles include "Waves" by Harry Sonoda, "In Hawaii" by Dennis Soares, "Reb'll Echo" by Richard Reb'll, "Righteous Morning" by Gordon Broad, "Kaimu Sun" by Alice Wise, "Magic Sands" by Mofoya, "Revelation" by Burgess & Brooks, "High Tide" by Eddie Suzuki, "Garden In The Rain" by Merrell Fankhauser, and "How Many Times" by Lyle K'Ang.
