SPEEDY GONZALES AND HIS HOOLA HOOPERS, Dreamboat of love, 1959

A German Polydor release but I don`t know anything about this. “Dreamboat” sounds like Sheb Wooley. Hawaiian Rock`n`Roll and a goofy clarinet…

DIE VALENTINOS, Hawaiiana, 1962

Okay, this is not Rock`n`Roll. Most Hawaiian music was as far removed from Rock`n`Roll as Polka music but then again there must be some rockin` Polkas. So considering this, the Valentinos`  “Hawaiiana” is pretty rockin`…

These photos are from the pin-up magazine TOP FIT #14 from the early 60`s published in Berlin-Wannsee. This was their special “Tropenzauber” ( tropical magic ) edition.

DIE HULA HAWAIIANS, Hawaiian Bells, 1961

hawaiian-bellsThe Hula Hawaiians were a little more up-beat than most German Hawaiian bands. Maybe because they were from Switzerland. On the budget label Elite.

FRED ARTMEIER UND SEINE HAWAIIAN-BAND, Südsee Träume

suedseetraume-frontsuedseetraume-backsuedseetraume-labelThis is much better than what you would expect from the  German budget label Tempo.

The four tracks are instrumental medleys of Hawaiian standards played in a quality  similar to Werner Müller`s “Phase 4” recordings.

TAU MOE´S ORIGINAL-HAWAIIANS, Hawaiian War Chant

The band´s name and the music is more “original” sounding than the majority of the German stuff but they give it away once they start singing: “Mein schönes Land Hawaii….

MAUNA LOA HAWAIIAN BOYS, On The Beach At Waikiki

I don`t know anything about this group. They could be from anywhere.

“On the beach at Waikiki” is a nice rockin` instrumental Hawaiian song and my favorite song of all the Hawaiian records that I posted here. It`s really great. Check for yourself…
