Golden Girls. ANYWAY, since I'm nearing the end of my summer, I'm doing everything I can to hold on to it. That includes putting on a lei and making some kind of pineapple drink and pretending I am in Hawaii. There is no better music for that daydream than Sol K. Bright.
Sol is a baller. He did a little bit of everything and has made Hawaii proud. He was a songwriter, singer, and band leader and was making a killing in Hawaii and even Japan. He was a big band type leader in the thirties! How crazy is that? He had a band called the Hollywaiians. I'm in love. Sol was also a super talented steel guitar player. I have been listening to the song "La Rosita" on repeat for a while now trying to capture summer in a bottle. I have also been listening to this one but the embedding is disabled. Time to get tropical.
If anyone knows more about Sol, I want to hear about it. I can't dig anything else up about him, really. I also would kill to have his stuff on vinyl.
