According to Athens of the North, it's taken the label some three years to convince Hawaiian singer Cypriano Nohelani to permit them the chance to reissue this batch of tracks. It's certainly been worth the effort! 1979 smoulder session "Lihue" is a warm, cuddly affair charged with yearning emotion; it's a beautiful slice of barbed soul. "Playin' With Fire" (taken from her '82 album In The Evening) is a much more forthright boogie affair. Disco with 80 production flourishes... Just wait until that guitar solo kicks in. Careful; you might lose your trousers.
