Facing Future




The 33 1/3 series of books tackles renowned albums, then covers them in fanatic, exacting detail: It’s like liner notes on steroids. Seminal album Facing Future, by Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, has just received the 33 1/3 treatment in a new book by Dan Kois. Kois interviewed many of Bruddah Iz’s family members and music colleagues to tell the story of the album and how it changed Hawaiian music forever. You can order the paperback, $10.95, at continuumbooks.com.
