About The Album...

This album features Gabby's first time recording with his sons, Bla, Philip, Cyril and Martin. They, along with "Atta" Isaacs, and "Joe Gang" Kapahu, would eventually form the acclaimed "Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian Band."
The band would go on to record two other albums on the Panini Label. Panini would later re-release tracks of these two albums in a "Best of" album following Gabby's passing in 1981.

The album features 16 tracks. The very first track, "Hi'ilawe 1947" was recorded originally on a 78 rpm in 1947 when Gabby was in his 20's. The final track, Hi'ilawe 1972, was recorded on April 22, 1972, Gabby's 51st B-day.
