Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

This is an abridged vinyl reissue. It is missing 2 songs. (Captiol Records released a whole series of reissues minus 1 or 2 tracks to reduce the royalty charges).For the complete album on CD go to www.hawaiian-music.com and search under "hawaii calls christmas".

Sweet! Thanks for the info, James! I had no idea that this wasn't the entire collection (although I'm too familiar with Capitol's tendency to drop tracks from re-issues).

I love the fact that Hawaii, as a State and as a Culture, supports it's musical heritage well enough to allow for reissues of so much of it's back catalog!

You're welcome T.V. Much as I like Hawaii Calls material, I didn't think this was exotic enough. Could have used a cooler exotica vibe more like their other albums such as Fire Goddess. Not a bad album, but something seemed missing. Arthur Lyman will have to do for now along with the 2 slack key guitar christmas cd's.
