Editor's note: while the singing on this record is immaculate and the songs are fine as far as religious LPs go the bitter consensus with me is that this isn't very Hawaiian at all! Not that it was promised to be as such but it's kind of intimated with a group called THE HAWAIIANS! There are some native sounding drumbeats but they sound more African than Hawaiian. If you just want some Christian music you won't be disappointed. However, if you wanted something with a tropical flare you'll be left wanting because this isn't it my brothers.

Hi R.O.

Altho i already stated that i'm not a religious freak i at the same time must admit that i have a very soft spot for these Xiansounds. I coulden't care less for the messages they bring in the lyrics (a proud pagan i am) but the joy and happines these albums bring with the music is outstanding.
Thank you for yet another great listening experince.

I quite enjoy them myself despite being a heathen!
