Hi Donna -
Alika Gomez (aka Joe Alika) made small groups of test pressings, all by
Victor, but only 2 records (4 sides) were released by the Alika Hawaiian
Trio, Vi 19591 & 19735, both rec. Feb. 1925. They did not record for any
other label, so your record is fairly obscure. I would guess you have
"Hot Tamale Molly" as it was the most popular tune on the two records.

First, I am still in the process of trying to inventory the collection

year career on the air.
I noted a couple of Hawaiian records on various labels, such as one on
Victor by the Alika Hawaiian Trio. I also noted a LOT of
transcriptions, but they were mainly from programs by performers in
Boston radio, with a couple from Manchester New Hampshire. Nothing
foreign or international yet, although there were some 78s from the
Telefunken label. As I progress more with the inventorying, I'll update
you-all, but it's gonna be a long, slow process.
