Forget Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, think about the Makaha Sons of Ni‘ihau
Hau‘oli maika‘i ‘o Hawaii ke ‘ala mai kani Kawika lani makahiki hou piha aloha no pēlā mahalo i Keikikāne Ni‘ihau ‘o ka Makaha! :D

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole has the best recorded version I've ever heard of Kainoa. Seven songs feature new arrangements including a previously unreleased version of Paper Doll and simply amazing versions of You Don't Know Me, Sea of Love, I'll Be There and a joy filled version of Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World. This collection also features nine songs from his time with the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau including the live version of Rusty Old Steampipes. This is truly unforgettable music.
I'm officially impressed
after having bought EVERYTHING with Israel Kamakawiwo'ole involved, here another masterpiece. this album is incredible the quality of the music and the talents are at the highest levels. Beautiful beyond words and IZ voice is so incredible it stands out even when he sings in a chorus. A MUST HAVE.. I love bruddah IZ.. he will live forever.
there is a very beautiful version of over the rainbow/wonderful world.
