Thanks for bringing this version of South Sea Rose to my attention, John.
I have George Olson's version listed in the Hawaiian discog, but not the 
one by Noble.
I consider this a borderline "tropical" tune as Hawaii is not in the 
"South Seas",
nowhere is Hawaii mentioned in the lyrics, and there is no steel guitar 
present, at least
on the Noble version.
Good to know about, though.
