King Bennie Nawahi is, without a doubt, the finest Hawaiian slide player that ever lived. As the excellent liner notes to this superb collection explain, the slide guitar sound became very popular in the early part of the 20th Century. And while it was a novelty style for many, Nawahi 's unequaled chops and fine melodic sense raised it to a true art form. There's bouncing swing ("Signin' in the Bathtub") that is charming in itself. But there is also heartbreaking and haunting treatments of traditional tunes here as well.

Steel guitar began showing up in country music as early as the 1920s. For example, Jimmie Rodgers featured acoustic steel guitar in his song "Tuck Away My Lonesome Blues" (1929). The earliest use of an electrified steel guitar was in the early 1930s by Bob Dunn of Milton Brown and His Brownies, a western swing band. Tunings and techniques are similar to acoustic Hawaiian steel guitar playing, but have evolved somewhat differently in the bluegrass idiom, which generally involves faster picking and changes than Hawaiian music does. Bottleneck guitar may have actually developed from Steel guitar technique. It is similar, with the exception that the guitar is held in the conventional position, and a different, tubular form of slide is slipped over the middle or ring finger or pinky to accommodate this playing position.

King Bennie Nawahi (Benjamin Keakahiawa Nawahi) was an American slack-key guitar master from Hawaii, well-known throughout the country in the 1920s and 30s. He performed well into the 1970s, when a stroke left him partially paralyzed. Nawahi learned to play in the parks of Honolulu with his brother's band, the Hawaiian Novelty Five, playing on a passenger liner that sailed from Honolulu to San Francisco.
