I was pleased when Jesse Morgan, the lead singer of The Mopptops, contacted me and was gracious enough to provide photos and to share his memories of the time he spent with the group. The band was looking for a singer to complete the group and that was me. There were many good bands in Hawaii back then.
Most of the bands back in the day catered to local people's interest in music and cover songs played on the radio stations. Typically the pop music scene in Hawaii lagged behind what was a year ahead on the mainland and around the world.
The Mopptops were an alternative to the other groups on the Island, and because of this, it took longer for us to reach our own audience. Our biggest followers consisted mostly of people from the mainland and those serving in the military; the military presence in Hawaii was very large due to the many military bases throughout Hawaii. Once I joined the band, Michael Payton and I collaborated to write most of our songs.
The Mopptops recorded mostly original material and very little cover songs. The Band worked the nightclub circuit, enabling us to make a living at what we love doing.
The record was released on the Dee Jay record label.
