Go Hawaii = best CVJ album. Everything he has done since doesn't compare.

I found this article about the Wobblyhead label back in 2000 http://onmilwaukee.com/music/articles/wobblyhead.html?viewall=1
Not much is said about Kowalski, but it's definitely interesting to see where this label sprouted from.

Casino vs Japan makes some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard. It is almost a euphoric listening experience. Definitely a must for any fan of beautiful electronic music.
