A wonderful collection. This CD covers music from the first three Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau albums, No Kristo, Kahea O Keale, and Ke'ala. It covers the period of time from 1976 through 1978. By this time, they were recognized as an established, popular recording group with a solid following. They were quite a picture: a group of young Hawaiians, including two very large members, whose music was pure and beautiful, highlighted by the voice of young Israel. His was the voice that was the essence of the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau.

The group became known for their uncompromising devotion to Hawaiian music and Hawaiian values. Israel's older brother Skippy emerged as the leader and spokesperson for the group. He articulated their philosophy of music that which comes from the heart, and he personified the big heartedness of the band. Skippy was a very spiritual, charismatic person who commanded the stage; his message: Hawaiian pride in music and culture. Little attention was paid to appearance as they beleived the audience loved their carefree, laid back style. As Skippy said, "This is who we are...and we are Hawaiian." Their popularity and celebrity continued to increase with each passing year and is still consistantly a favorite choice with all afficianadoes of traditional Hawaiian music.
