Iz on the 25 Greatest Hawaii Albums

Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo`ole’s song, “`Opae E” on the album Alone in IZ World, is featured in Honolulu Magazine’s The 25 Greatest Hawaii Albums of the New Century.

The album ranked 3rd on the magazine’s list!

“Alone In IZ World” was compiled after the passing of Iz in 1997.  Luckily, Jon de Mello recorded every studio moment to tape – outtakes, banter, lighthearted covers.  The result was an unheard revelation.
