R. Alex Anderson
- I just found out that there has been a biography written about R.
Alex Anderson, the Hawaiian tunesmith who died a few years ago at the
ripe old age of 104. He got his start writing music for Blanding's
early musical shows.
You can get the book online from Barnes & Noble:
FROM A JOYFUL HEART; The life and music of R. Alexander Anderson
by Scott C.S. Stone, 2001 Island Heritage Publishing
or from the publisher: www.islandheritage.com
- thanks keith.
I know that Blanding had a great influence on Alex Andersons lyrics.
Especially AA favorite Haole Hula. I think Don helped him write it although
he is not credited.
