About the Album...

This was the Band's final album and was a successful follow-up to the inaugural Gabby Band release. Six of these tracks were recorded at the same Aug/Sep 1974 North Kona recording sessions that spawned the first Gabby Band album.

The three other tracks (Waikiki Hula, Kilakila O Moanalua, and No Ke Ano Ahiahi) were recorded at the Warner Bros. Recording Studio in Hollywood. On these three tracks Gabby sings and plays just about all the instruments (6 and 12 String Guitars, Baritone and 8 String 'Ukuleles, Bass, and Steel Guitar). Each track was laid down individually and mixed once all tracks were laid down. This was a great accomplishment for a Hawaiian musician at this point in time.

The album features a total of 9 tracks including traditional standards and an original by Gabby's son Bla.
