Hawaii Via Belgium

What's that? You want some Hawaiian Christmas music? But you want it to come from a bunch of Belgian studio musicians?  Not a problem.  I recorded this last year, but never shared it out for whatever reason, but I'm giving it to you this year because I'm tired tonight and don't want to work on something new.  This has seen it's fair share of shares on the various sharity blogs out there, but this is my rip, and if you don't already have it, I think you'll enjoy it.  This is The Waikikis-Merry Christmas In Hawaii (Kapp KS-3444, Stereo, 1965).  Mele Kalikimaka!

01. White Christmas
02. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
03. Silver Bells
04. Snow In Hawaii
05. O Tannenbaum
06. Sleigh Ride
07. The Little Drummer Boy
08. The Christmas Song
09. Winter Wonderland
10. Waikiki Christmas
11. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
12. Silent Night

If you want better Hawaiian Christmas music, you're going to have to pay for it.  I used to share out a great one, but it's now something you can legally download.

Well, I suppose I can give you a little more Hawaiian Christmas music. Here's a single from Alfred Apaka that I shared out back in 2007, I think.

And here's some Don Ho from last year:

Can't thank you enough for your hard work! And I love the little extras in the comments, so thanks for that little clever addition as well.

The editorials and comments are least the guys from Belgium were smart enough to enjoy Christmas in Hawaii instead of freezing their butts off in their home country :)

Ernie: You shared one once that was killer. I don't remember too much about it but the album had the Theme from The Third man on it. The first track in particular was great, with some wonderful percussion! I would turn it all the way up in the car and my daughter would roll her eyes and cover her ears. Ho ho ho, it's Christmas!
