For anyone interested in hearing some early Hawaiian steel guitar music from its golden period should track down a compilation album I put together in 2002 for Catfish Records. It was compiled as an introduction to the genre and showcases 24 of the greatest Hawaiian steel guitar records from the 1930s. All tracks feature resophonic National, Dobro, or acoustic guitars.

Here is a link to ALLMUSIC.COM page about the album.

Thanks Bod. Much appreciated. I just bought that one for £2.63 plus postage.
I am pleased you like the collection. It was a lot of work and the remastering was done as subtly as possible. I don't like remasters of 78s that strip away the actual recording. I prefer a few pops & crackles than half the recording.
Shame about the discogs one. A little bit disturbing how the Amazon search throws up the £145 copy whilst hiding the £11.99 copy behind the ‘see all 2 formats and editions’ link (especially as they both seem to be the same...)
Interesting to see how well dispersed around the globe these are - Italy, Japan, Australia, New Zealand...
