    In 2004, Hawaiian Airlines celebrated its 75 anniversary with an anthology CD featuring 14 historical Hawaiian songs. This was in partnership with the Hilo Hattie stores, and a customer would receive a free CD with purchases of $50 or more within a time limit and as supplies lasted. I found this CD by accident at a rummage sale. The 14 featured songs superbly represent a cross-section of Hawaiian music through a swath of history. Some of the selections have possibly never been on CD. This may mean that the remastering was expertly done, because the sound quality is outstanding. One song provides and an example. After the group Hui Ohana disbanded, Ledward Kaapana recruited rhythm guitar player and vocalist Alika Odom and bass player and vocalist Bernard Kalua to form a group that initially called itself "Na Leo Kane O Punahele," which was also the title of the group's first album released as an LP and cassette. One of the songs on this album, one which is reissued on the "Follow Me Home" CD, was "I Kona." The remastered version is a masterpiece. Ledward Kaapana solos a verse, which then is repeated in three-part harmony. The string backing is powerful with Ledward's slack-key brilliance, Alika's stable rhythm, and boom base from Bernard which matches that similarly powerful bass that Nedward Kaapana played on the Hui Ohana albums. "I Kona" was so popular and the name "Na Leo Kane O Punahele" so wordy and hard to remember, that the group changed its name to "I Kona."
