Is anyone familiar with Jerry Byrd's "Hawaiian Sunset" album? I ran across this title during a search and was wondering if anyone was familiar with it. I hadn't heard of it before. I assume it's all Hawaiian music.

The tune Hawaiian Sunset is my favorite of all Hawaiian songs. And of course, no one plays it like Jerry Byrd. I play it on my Fender in the C6th tuning.

I was wondering if the tune has lyrics.

Hawaiian Sunset is one of the few Hawaiian tunes that the country steel players knew in the old days. Never ever heard any one in Hawaii play it.
