midweek music: “Haleiwa Farewell”

Spending yesterday at the New York Botanical Gardens at the “Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai`i” exhibit put me in a Hawai`i mood, and so I present this song that Arlo Guthrie wrote after spending the better part of a year as an actor on a TV show that filmed in that Pacific Paradise called Byrds of Paradise. It only lasted a season, and after it was cancelled, Arlo wrote this wordless tune as a tribute to his time there.
