Aina's only work by Howard Shapiro and Michael Joao who met through surfing on Oahu, Hawaii. Since their formation in 1977, they have performed repeatedly and completed this work in 1980. Total of 14 songs with elements such as soft rock, AOR, psychedelic rock and respect for Hawaiian culture such as native Hawaiian human rights and environmental protection. In particular, the Hawaiian AOR tune "Insouled In You" which harmonizes with spacey development and melancholy/mellow taste is fantastic, as well as the psychedelic taste soft rock "Path Of Heart", and the beautiful folky tunes with slack key and steel guitar tones "Harmony Song” and “America Be One Man” are also great. The artwork and appearance make you feel love. Valuable dead stock copy.

ハワイ・オアフ島にてサーフィンを通じて出会ったというHoward ShapiroとMichael Joaoの二人によるAinaの唯一作。77年の結成から演奏を重ね80年に本作が完成。ソフトロック、AOR、サイケデリックロック等の要素にネイティブハワイアンの人権や環境保護などのハワイ文化への敬意を込めた全14曲。特にスペーシーな展開に哀愁、メロウが調和したハワイアンAOR”Insouled In You”は屈指の名曲、他にもサイケ調のソフトロック”Path Of Heart”、スラックキーギターやスティールギターの音色が美しいフォーキーな”The Harmony Song”や”America Be One Man”も素晴らしいです。アートワークや体裁も非常に愛を感じる作り。貴重なデッドストックコピーを譲ってもらいました。
