A friend just left some Hawaiian Ukulele vinyl 33 1/3 albums he found at a garage sale on my desk. They are:

Malekowa & The Trade Winds: Hawaii Guitars & Ukuleles
Jimmy Uke & His Islanders: Hawaiian Holiday
Johnny Pineapple & His Orchestra: Hawaiian Holiday With...

My uke tastes don't really swing toward Hawaiian, so these LPs from (probably) the 60's and 70's sound a little hokey to me. However, i don't want to toss them or hang them on the wall if they are valuable.

Does anybody know anything about these groups?

I don't know those groups specifically, but there's a whole new generation of hipsters who are into vinyl and into tiki/hawaiiana/exotica type music. So I'd check eBay and Etsy to see if you can find any of those titles or artists.

just send them to me I'll appreciate them!

I'd hang on to them. It's not like 3 LP's are going to take up that much space. But then again, I'm a sucker for old vinyl and record players.

I did a quick search and this does look like the type of music that was aimed at visitors rather than locals, but I would be interested in listening to that first record, as anything with twin steel guitars probably sounds nice!
