Hilo Hawaiians - Honeymoon in Hawaii

This was a booklet plus LP that was sold or given away to tourists by City Bank of Honolulu. Its a fairly large book that gives an overview of all of the islands, Hawaiian history, language, culture as well as current attractions. The art and photos suggest to me that it was made in the late 60s or very early 70s. The album that was included is "Honeymoon in Hawaii" by the Hilo Hawaiians. Its a beautiful little slab of island goodness and one of my very, very favorite Hawaiian music LPs.

There are at least two versions of this LP that I've seen and in both instances the song lists on the covers do not match those on the labels (the labels being correct). The only questionable thing about the label listings is that Aloha Oe is at the end of side one, whereas on the cover (and as common sense would suggest) it closes side two. Since the labels are correct in all other aspects I have continued to use that track list order for my files.

IT has been a good information for me because I didn't know that it had been sold to tourists, so I want to know if I still can get this album everywhere.
