This discography is a non-commercial labor-of-love and is in no way associated with any business firm.
All I know about the resp. artist's / label's musical output is shown on this page. To purchase out-of-print records I recommend an ebay, gemm or google search. And - sorry for that - I have not the time to answer any e-mails asking me about further information, let alone duplicating out-of-print recordings I happen to own.

Paradise Isle


"Felix Mendelssohn had one of Britain's most popular bands in the 30s and 40s. In the late 30s he became enomored with Hawaiian music and transformed the band into a Hawaiian style group complete with Hawaiian costumes and dancers and played music in Hawaiian style - often using genuine Hawaiian performers alongside British musicians. The recordings here were made between 1939 and 1949 and includes rare studio recordings and film soundtracks and employs the talents of a number of fine steel guitarists including Roland Peachey, George Elliot, Sammy Mitchell, Tau Moe, Kealoha Life and others. An entertaining mixture of material and set comes with 20 page booklet with reminiscences by Kealoha Life and rare photos." (www.rootsandrhythm.com)
