Product Description

The track may be 17 years old and the singer passed away 13 years ago, but Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's moving version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" topped the German singles chart for three weeks in 2010, thanks to a television advert. This compilation celebrates the recent rediscovery of Hawaii's "Gentle Giant," surrounding the title cut with other "Iz" favorites such as "Kaulana Kawaihae," "White Sandy Beach," and "What a Wonderful World."

Format: Audio CD
When I first listened to the intro to this version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", I was mezmorised by the gentleSomewhere Over The Rainbow - The Greatest Hits melody and knew I just had to buy it. It took some searching for because I had never heard of the late Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. His music and songs are a delight, especially this song which has an intimate south seas islands feeling about it. A special song sung by a giant of a man.
