It's probably not possible to overstate the importance of this album to Hawaiian music. Coming on the heels of Pahinui's decade with Sons of Hawaii, Gabby sees the slack-key master teaming up with four sons and a cast of stars to produce one of his most captivating releases. Only a singer like Pahinui could make his falsetto sound sweet and simultaneously gruff, and the effervescent, effortlessly mingled guitars belie the music's complexity and innovative approach to traditional music. It's a beautiful cascade of an album, and it kick-started the Hawaiian cultural renaissance, to boot.
