Sam Kapu - "Chatto Matte Kudasai (Never Say Goodbye)" (1971)


Sam Kapu - "Chatto Matte Kudasai (Never Say Goodbye)" (Billboard easy listening #39, entered 9/11/71)Written by Jeanne Nakashima. Produced by Ed Brown and John De Marco. 45: "Chatto Matte Kudasai (Never Say Goodbye)"/"Huttin' in the Hall" (Hana Ho 1971). LP: Sam Kapu Again! (Hana Ho 1969).

Sam Kapu is perhaps best known as a Don Ho show biz cohort (who appeared alongside him in a Brady Bunch segment). This single has a chorus reminiscent of Glen Campbell's "I'll Paint You a Song." A big seller and airplay staple in Kapu's native Hawaii, it did make a brief showing on Billboard's easy listening chart.
