Towed Away

by Rap Reiplinger

"A daffy delight" is how Hawaii entertainment writer Wayne Harada described "Towed Away," noting the albumʻs "two inspired vocals," "Man with the Cho-Cho Lips" and "Ass Why Hard." Pidgin-filled Island humor rounds out this 1983 release, Rap's final album.

Album Notes
Even though Hawaii's comic genius, Rap Reiplinger has been gone for more than 35 years, his humor has never left the hearts and minds of those who call the Islands home. More than four decades after redefining comedy in the Hawaiian Islands, Rap and his humor are still making people laugh. His iconic catch phrases are forever carved in the memory banks of fans old and new, whether they live in Hawaiʻi or have migrated elsewhere. Rap’s one-liners are comedic glue that bind people together and bridge generations whenever anyone takes a sip of wine and declares it, “Not too sweet, not too rancid but jesss right!” That line and other Rapisms make folks laugh and whatever their differences, they find common ground in Rap’s unique perspective on Hawaiʻi’s ethnic melting pot. The New Yorker magazine called Rap “Hawaii’s most popular comedian…in the tradition of Mort Sahl and Lenny Bruce.” Rap was the first in Hawaiʻi to win an Emmy award, when his television show, Rap’s Hawaii earned the honor for Outstanding Achievement/Entertainment Special. During his 33 ½ years, Rap recorded seven albums.
