Kahauanu Lake "elevated the basic technique of strumming to an art form while also demonstrating the importance of going beyond simple chords. He bucked tradition with arrangements in which the ‘ukulele defined the melody rather than the rhythm of a song, helping the humble (‘ukulele) make the leap to lead instrument rather than a sidekick to the guitar or piano. – John Berger, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 9/28/03

 "This reissue, part of Hula Records' Legendary Classics Series, captures ('Mr. K's') timeless presence – a 1965 recording retrofitted for a 2007 audience, complete with enhanced liner notes jammed with lyrics and translations, a roster of achievements and awards from the mid-1980s till now, and a bonus track, 'Na Mamo Ali‘i.'...The tunes are like handpicked fruit from a tree laden with ripe mangoes, composed by some of the stellar old-time pros..." – Wayne Harada, Honolulu Advertiser, 8/10/07.
