On the Beach at Waikiki

As the original liner notes insist, the Hawaiian guitar craze that surprised the nation in the 1920s did not end—it just changed to incorporate different repertoires and styles, including jazz, ragtime, and country music. This collection celebrates the heyday of slack-key guitar recording, in all its color.
