1. Product Details

Enterprising composer and musician Eddie Suzuki made his own path throughout his lifetime. Born on October 6 1928 Suzuki worked as a young shoeshiner in 1940s Honolulu saving enough money to take piano lessons. In high school he led a big band orchestra of 16 and sometimes up to 40 members. By the age of 18 he owned a piano shop that pivoted to become Honolulus top guitar store. For Eddie Suzuki music always came first. In 1973 after performing and composing songs for many years Eddie Suzuki and his group New Hawaii recorded the now impossibly rare album High Tide. The LP is not a rock-out local music journalist Wayne Harada ruminated in a 1973 review. Rather its one mans vision and version of the now Hawaii. A seasoned mix of psych Hawaiian and pop sensibilities the music on High Tide gave the listener a look into Eddies singular vision celebrating the sights and sounds and spirit of Hawaii. AGS-036 from Aloha Got Soul highlights two top tunes from the album. City of Refuge an island psych-rock rarity that burns blissfully like the Hawaiian sun. Fly To Waikiki a playful romanced tune about Hawaiis most famous destination. Eddie Suzukis New Hawaii was Laurence Harada on guitar John Schulmeister on bass Gary Fittro on drums Nani Kuaiwa on vocals and Eddie Suzuki on vocals Hammond organ and Arp synthesizer.
