The track is and entire album is available on CD.
Can't seem to find it online, but it is also on the following compilation: "Dick Bartley Presents Collector's Essentials: The 70's"

Actually I wouldn't mind seeing her track "Me Japanese Boy (I Love You)" released to CD. This song came out in 1973 and topped a couple of the local radio charts here.

My Hawaii has a similar quality that invokes a sense of pride in Hawaii. Then there's Hawaii sung by Don Ho.

Regarding 1900 Yesterday, that truly is a beautiful song, someone should do a remake with all the instrumentation.

The original version of "My Hawaii" by The Rascals is the golden standard for any rock ballad about Hawaii made by a non-Hawaiian artist.

I remember Don Ho's version of "Hawaii" being a radio hit too... this occurred around the time the movie of the same title was out in 1966. Back then Don Ho was on a "major" record label... Reprise Records and had 2 or 3 albums released with a handful of singles that got airplay on pop radio and I think even made the lower ends of the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

"1900 Yesterday" does have a timeless quality about it and is probably ripe for an updated revival soon. I also like "Me Japanese Boy (I Love You)" by Liz Damon.
