“I met Bill (a multi-talented musician) whilst on a workshop for Dobro at Sore Fingers. He obviously impressed me because I ended up recording a CD with him over some months. He is meticulous (nay fanatical) in ensuring that his work is of the highest standard. He has a great knoweldge of music in general and I have seen at first hand his teaching, musical skills and enthusiasm across a full range of instruments including the ukulele, guitar and Dobro. And he even makes a mean cup of coffee!
Have a chat with him as he is highly skilled at what he does and you will not be disappointed – whatever your musical whims.”

Great stuff!!!! – Arnau and the Bordin disc sound and look good.Nice job of mastering. Of all the research and reading I have done Daniel Arnau and Gino are new discoveries ,so thank you.
M.G. – Hawaii
Arnau’s playing style is quite unique – you did a good job of compiling and restoring these rare recordings.
Eddie Bush CD – thank you to all who supported this project –
Today I received my copy of the Eddie Bush CD. What a beautiful produced issue it is, with great transfers. Thanks for making it available.
HM – Munich
Another superb job with the Eddie Bush cd. The transfers sound great, and the packaging is fantastic. THANK YOU, once again, for keeping yet another set of such beautiful and historically significant recordings alive and available for us all!
JT – USA
You are the best. Mahalo nui loa for collecting and publishing the music we love so much. Aloha
I received the CD yesterday, and it is a gem. I had heard very little of Eddie’s playing, but his mastery of the Tricone is really something. I also really like the way that each recording date was noted. Nice job on the transfers.
I’ve really been enjoying this CD. It has so many of my favorites on here. I especially like the Biltmore Trio’s version of Love Me or Leave Me. It’s a 78 I’ve always wanted to score, but now I can listen to a nice clean copy any time.Thanks for making this reissue happen. It’s all great stuff
Bien reçu le cd; merci; magnifique, comme toujours; je vais faire une chronique bien sûr et vous tiendrai au courant; bravo en tous cas; all ze best
Comment te remercier ?J’adore ça. Mahalo !Bravo encore pour cette réalisation.
Got it, and it’s great! Thanks for sending it–you did a very good job of restoration.
DB – Tennessee USA
We thought that our cassette would never be listenable again. Thank you so much for bringing back our church recording back to life.

Brilliant – everyone should come and learn ukulele with you. I don’t know many songs yet but it makes me smile every time I pick it up and strum. See you next month.
T P – Wigan
Thanks for the workshop. My opinion of the humble ukulele has changed completely! I’ve even started carrying mine around whilst I work away on business. Working hard to have a “party piece” to impress the family. I’ll catch you again, thank you very much indeed.

Best music lesson ever – couple of hours flew past – inspiring. Wish I had done lessons like this when I was at school.

You should have been my music teacher when I was at school – maybe then I wouldn’t have hated the lessons. Playing ukulele with you is wonderful. I wish I had started this years ago.
