Image: 1587142 BBE release the 2nd installment to their 'Ultra Rare' series with Hal Bradbury's This Is Love , considered to be one of the holy grail lost Hawaiian classics.

Many Hawaiian records released in the early 70s through to the early 80s have that authentic AOR sound that so much timeless music from The WestCoast of America has from that golden period when ‘The Canyon’ was bristling with legends.
Hal Bradbury’s “This Is Love” is one of those records. The album is considered to be one of the Holy Grail Hawaiian LPs that record collectors the world over dream of… a masterpiece of modern Soul and AOR from ’81, originally released on the very small and obscure Fan Records. Hal
Bradbury, one of the lead singers from the legendary Hawaiian pop group The Fabulous Krush, released this solo album only available and sold at his gigs around the islands.
The Fabulous Krush was Hawaii’s favorite band, a charismatic, dynamic and superbly talented group, that gave its audience good, clean fun and a happy wholesome entertainment with every performance. The album contains Disco tracks like “Babe I Want You” written by Bradbury himself as well as cover versions of Sam Cooke’s “You Send Me” and The Beatles’ “She’s My Woman”… as well as the “You Win I Lose” a track first unearthed by Japan’s trendsetter and co compiler with Kon & Amir in the legendary ‘Kings of series’ … DJ Muro, as well as appearing on the
Americana 2 compilation on BBE, which was album of the week on the UK’s Jazz Fm, as well as being playlisted by Radio Nova in France.
This is the second instalment of BBE’s very ambitious and deep-digging reissues series.
