Adios ke aloha is on "Na Mele O Paniolo," Warner Western cd, # 9 48561-2, and "Palani Vaughan's Best, vol. II (Hele 'Elua)" PV Best 2, Nakahili Prod., Honolulu. I have others, but I believe they are no longer available. The 2 listed are available from
Some good 'ukulele playing is on "On Fire," Ka'au Crater Boys, RS 4707, Roy Sakama Prod. Troy Fernandez can really motor on his 'uke. Tape and now, I think cd.
A good song in English is "My Yellow Ginger Lei," on "Mahalo, Ke Akua; Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau." Tropical Music SPC-9038, tape.
On pronounciation, beginning books with tapes are listed in Univ. Hawai'i Press: Learn Hawaiian at Home, $45.95, Cat. 1-880188-21-X, and one for kids, Hawaiian Word Book, $25.95, 1-880188-60-O. Shipping is $5 for 1st book in USA, $7 for Europe, with warehouses in PA, HI and UK. Univ. Hawai'i Press, 2840 Kolowalu St. Honolulu HI 96822-1888. Maybe Mark Cohen could look at the one for kids, it may have enough to get the pronounciations.
