A collection of songs previously released by Gabby "Pops" Pahinui, featuring the legendary master of slack-key guitar; a Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner and recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award.

"It may be difficult for many present-day fans to believe that Gabby did not enjoy life-long fame and fortune as a master musician and vocalist. Most contemporary slack-key guitarists acknowledge Gabby as a major source of inspiration and influence; most scholars of Hawaiian music site him as a major innovator. Yet, rather than play for dollars-and-cents commercial success, Gabby always played for his love of music. And rather than compromise his music, he supported his family by working on a City & County Road Crew for much of his life. Fortunately, Gabby lived long enough to enjoy the acclaim he had never sought but so richly deserved." – John Berger,
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin
