Notes:

Bing had a few Hawaiian themes albums dating back to the 70 RPM.  In 1963 Crosby recorded this album.  Collector's Choice has and continues to do great work with releasing vintage recordings, including exotica and Hawaiian vintage music.  This release is treated with great care.  The audio is first rate quality.  The complete original album (including original artwork) is presented here along with 6 bonus tracks, never before heard until now.  Lush orchestrations and that crooner's voice--a great listen. WORD OF WARNING: Collector's Choice is notorious for releasing albums and then , poof, they're gone out of print.  So when this one sold out, its gone.  Get it now.
