Their busy tour schedule found them traveling the mainland US and internationally. Eventually, the band relocated to Las Vegas in the mids to better accommodate the demands of being an in-demand touring band. When I first started trying to track down a license to reissue this record, I reached out to Randy Isaki , who is not only the composer but listed as the producer. It took several years, failed attempts and voicemails to finally get in touch with Randy. I drifted to a corner of the record shop to take the call, pulling out my notebook to write down anything Randy had to share. Randy recalled the music, but mentioned that it wasn't much of a tune. Maybe because of its simplicity in arrangement and progression at least compared to the rest of the group's catalog. He brushed the song off as less-than-memorable. Nonetheless, here I was, a fan of "Woota" amidst stacks of used CDs, tapes and vinyl records in Kaka'ako, Honolulu, asking the song's original composer and producer if he'd be open to letting Aloha Got Soul re-release this gem-of-a-tune to the world today. Except Randy wasn't the producer, even though the label says so.
Liz Damon's Orient Express was a s band from Hawaii, featuring lead singer Liz Damon, two female backup singers and a rotating backup band. The name apparently derived from the original backup band being entirely Asian. Most impressively, it peaked at No. In the early s, Sakauye left and was replaced by Meri McPherson. While the Damon sisters and McPherson appeared to be constants, their backup band appeared to undergo numerous personnel changes. Whifa after leaving the group in McPherson also sang back-up for a few years with the Cowsills. The Meawhifas currently live in Hilo, Hawaii , and are planning a comeback reunion tour.
Trust your instincts and your spiritual promptings. I hope that makes sense. Pray about it and follow your heart. Sorry you had to go through this, but it's for the best if she's about to leave on a mission.
