Reissued onto CD from the original 1980 LP and cassette formats.

  • One of the most heavenly of all sounds is that of a soprano voice accompanied by Hawaiian ki ho‘alu or slack key. Melveen Leed sings with four of the best slack-key musicians of all time, performing three songs each with Ledward Kaapana, Gabby Pahinui, Sonny Chillingworth, and Atta Isaacs. As if not quite trusting the star guitar players, the person originally in charge of musical arrangements added orchestration to some of the selections. This kind of diverts from the purity of the album. However, it really doesn't matter. Nothing can undercut Melveen's spectacular voice and powerful delivery and the perfect balance from Ledward, Gabby, Sonny and Atta. Of the slack-key guitar players, only Ledward is still alive. He continues to perform widely as does the featured singer, Melveen Leed.
