Somehow I never had Hawaiian Sunset - Volume II was blogged years ago by the now defunct Moon of Mankoora.

Thanks much!

Something tells me we've crossed paths in the $1 Clearance bins at Dallas-area HPBs.

I have some other Lyman albums. I was surprised and amazed to find out that one of the guys in the band made all those bird/animal noises!
