This is a great collection of Hawaiian songs that Marty Robbins did during his career. I was a child when I went with my dad to a friends house and they were playing a Hawaiian album done by Marty Robbins. I have been searching for years for that album and it is included along with another Hawaiian album in this collection. If you are a huge fan of the most versatile man of all time in country music then this is a must. All the songs are great and done in traditional style.
