University of California, Santa Barbara Library "Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project" has both Negro Recollections (which is every bit as terrifying as you'd think a couple white guys pretending to be old black guys could possibly be) AND Oh! How she could yacki hacki wicki wacki woo (That's love in Honolulu) -- which I can tell you from a few years of living in Hawaii is only true if you're Bu La'ia, Frank DeLima, or Don Ho. ...otherwise it's a good way to volunteer to be punched in the face.
