Every so often, a rare gem of an album comes along that is indisputably timeless. John’s first album, which he also produced, is such a recording and has the credentials to prove it. The Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning CD (Contemporary Album of the Year and Most Promising Artist) sold over 100,000 copies in Hawaii alone and remains one of the top-selling albums in Hawaiian history. Songs still receive daily radio airplay. Hits like “Shine On” and “Island Style,” which has become a Hawaiian anthem, are featured tracks. The warm melodies, soulful singing and exceptional song writing make this album a necessary part of anyone’s CD collection.
