Description
I recorded this in my late twenties when i first had a little 12 volt amp and a 'Copycat' echo unit. It's another song that I managed to retrieve from the reel to reel analog tapes, some of which I posted last year. I'm sorry about the quality of the sound, but when tapes are so old it's just a miracle there's anything on them at all. When you hear my voice as it is here compared to how it sounds now, it's just one more example of what time, a lot of singing (and a lot of cigarettes; I smoked until 1993) can do to the vocal chords.... but I hope you like this bare sound... just vocal and guitar and echo LOL, M

Lyrics
This is the moment
I've waited for
I can hear my heart singing
Soon bells will be ringing

This is the moment
Of sweet Aloha
I will love you longer than forever
Promise me that you will leave me never

Here and now dear,
All my love,
I vow dear
Promise me that you will leave me never
I will love you longer than forever
Now that we are one
Clouds won't hide the sun
Blue skies of Hawaii smile
On this, our wedding day
I do love you with all my heart

Fantastic Maurice
Hearing you do this song, you voice is strong and controlled as only young person (anyone under 50) can do. The recording quality is amazing from what you said about the condition and age of the tape.

Excellent post my friend, you sound great here.

Ah, Ed
Those were the days... I think I must have accidentally kept those tapes in the right conditions for them to have kept so well. Thanks a lot for giving this a listen, all the best M

I just
knew you would like this one Sylvia. I would have posted it last year with 'My Yiddishe Momma' (which was another retrieved tape), but I didn't realise how old the song was and that it was in the public domain until I just checked. Regards M

I have no idea
why M but this song reminds me of "Blue Velvet." Don't ask me why, it just does.

This is really awesome! One of your best and probably one of my favorites of yours.

Very nicely sung!

Blue Velvet
is a really great song, but apart from the smoothness of the melody I don't hear a similarity....... must be the beat, but anyway, I'm really pleased you came to listen and comment. Thanks very much Michael, regards M

Wonderful!
Just what I needed at the end of a long day--listening to this was like opening a window and letting a very refreshing breeze into a very stuffy room! Thanks again Maurice! Applause from Minneapolis!

Haunting stuff
What a great find....you are almost like a British Roy Orbison on this one. Did you record this at Sun Studios in the 50's?
Cheers

No Steve
it was sat on the couch in the back room, with my Grundig TK20 and my copycat echo unit on the coffee table with a guitar I'd swapped for an electric razor LOL.... Thanks for giving this a listen Steve, regards M

Hula
Lula,the quality of the recording suits the style of the song to be honest,in fact I can imagine a bit of lovely vinyl hiss and scratch...and the singing's not bad either 80).

I wish that I still had recorded stuff from days gone by ,just to compare with what I do now,this is a good job ,nicely done Mo.

Thanks for
giving this oldie a listen Chris.... Yes I'm really pleased that I managed to salvage these songs... it's quite emotional first hearing them after so long..... and comparing the deterioration in my breathing abilities. It's like listening to someone else. Again, thanks for listening, regards M

Hawaiian Wedding Song
The echo has that classic sound of those great Sun records recordings of the 1950s. Great vocal that shines through the degraded shape of the tape. Thanks for sharing this.

Yes,
it is a slightly different voice. The smoking changed your voice more than age did. If only you could do it over...huh? Very, very sweet crooning, Maurice. It is nice to be able to retrieve your earlier tapes. Thank you. :)

Well Paula (Char)
it wasn't only my cigarettes I smoked, because when I was performing for those 30 and some years, there was always a blue pall of smoke from the audience drifting towards the stage and we must have been taking it all in with every breath... it's a miracle I'm still here LOL... thank you for giving this one a listen Char, regards M

hawaiian
maurice. wow...this is a total FIND. every wobble and glitch transports the listener instantly back in time. this haunting melody conjures up images for me of 1950s america...when something really bad has happened. i see the movie now...the murdered body falls into shot and the credits roll to your this song. love the echo on the voice...and it's totally authentic - a real gem. what a voice you had....ok so it's still great now, even with the woodbines, but wow...you sounded amazing back then.

Double Wow! LOL
What an imagination Julian.... murder? Body? in 1950's America? Come on now.... the Fonz must have only just been born... and all those sweet white picket fences and verandahs. Seriously though, this song is a very old Hawaiian song (Kei Kali Nau) but a couple of guys Al Hoffman and Dick Manning wrote the English lyrics.... Thanks a lot Julian for listening and for the kind words and much appreciated compliments... regards M
