Well, I learned one thing today... NA LEI O HAWAII is "Song of the Islands"!

I wonder if the player on that Disney cartoon could be Dick McIntire? He did a lot of gigging and recording in ...

I didn't realize that there were so many 1950s Hawaiian "rock" records out there! It seems like an odd mix... two genres of music that don't go together very well.

Regarding the no-name, ...

To me, it sounds like a Hawaiian band trying to play a Chuck Berry song! Or maybe like Chuck Berry trying to play one of his songs with a Hawaiian band. I guess everyone wanted to get on the rock & ...

I just stumbled across this unusual recording on YouTube. Recorded in 1957, it sounds like a blend of Hawaiian and 1950's rock & roll! There's a pretty cool steel solo at 0:22

Yes, Buddy was experimenting with it in the studio and couldn’t get rid of the distortion. So he scrapped the idea until he could find a way to make it work. Pete found a way to get rid of the disto ...

I saw her play that live (same routine, same instruments) at a fair here in Massachusetts back in the 1970s. I was impressed!

I've never seen Buddy's name connected with the talk box either. Alvino Rey gets props for being the first guitarist (or steel guitarist) to come up with a "talking guitar" device, although ...

It's in rough condition. As others have said, the tuner buttons may need to be replaced and there is a lot of wear/rust on the control plate. That old cord is hard-wired to the guitar and the seller s ...

Wow! Buddy Emmons attended your first public performance on pedal steel guitar. I hope you found that out after the show instead of before the show! Cool

These images are from an eBay auction of a 1972 British country music magazine. It's kind of hard to read, but there is some interesting inside information here.
