Frank Ferera: The All-Time Greatest Hawaiian Recording Artist

Maple MA-1013
This LP is a Canadian compilation, a gift from a friend in Toronto. There isn't a lot of Frank Ferera music on CD or mp3s, which is odd, as wikipedia calls him "the first star of Hawaiian music."

Three songs from this LP appear on various digital Hawaiian compilations. Youtube has quite a few videos of the remaining tracks, many of them from the original 78s. Listening to them makes it clear that some reverb or echo has been added to some of the tracks on this compilation. Too bad. Sample tracks are from youtube:
