Liner, Listening & Album Notes:

George de Fretes played an important role in the Hawaiian and Indo Rock Music scene. When he was sixteen years old he started his first musical group. He composed many new songs and played many traditionals. He also played many musical instruments like for example: trumpet, saxaphone, guitar and violin but he was world champion on steel guitar. He died in November 1981. After he died some family members continued with the Royal Hawaiian Minstrels. This album with 22 songs is part 2 of five unique albums he recorded at home. An nostalgic document. (see also the other 4 albums made by George De Fretes, his brother Peter De Fretes and cousin Roy de Fretes)
