I wrote some of the liner notes for this wonderful album.
It is a beautiful compilation by one of the top three Hawaiian guitarists and possibly the greatest guitar duo ever, but I wish I had been consulted about the pitch correction because six of the tracks are running too fast.
When it was mastered, the consultant brought in by the label assumed that Bob Pauole's National guitar was tuned to high bass A, but on six of the cuts it is not and therefore the tracks run too fast. It is a great shame because nobody will ever put out a Jim & Bob album again and these tracks will get used by other labels putting out compilations. So they will always be wrong!
I have my own masters of this album which I have pitch and speed corrected.
