The 50 Guitars of Tommy Garrett - Visit Hawaii (1962)


Just spent a little time meditating in my Hawaiian-themed guest room, which left me in a Hawaiian state of mind, so I decided to share this one with you today. I do love Tommy Garrett and this album is a delight (love the cover art, too!). It has the usual selection of Hawaiian songs, including my very favorite, "Hawaiian War Chant". I don't know what it is about that song that just makes me get up and dance! (I'm just grateful that no one is around to videotape me.) So, put on your Hawaiian skirt and dance like no one is watching!
