Documenting the hula craze of the depression era, Hawaiian Steel Guitar Classics: 1927-1938 compiles some of the wildest, most twisted dance music of the 20th century. Sung in quivering tones that mimic cowboy yodels and barbershop quartets, these 78-RPM novelty hits are way too sprightly and silly to be moldy museum pieces.
