Aura recorded 'When The Feeling's Right' and 'Stop' at Sea West Studios in a matter of 8 hours. Vince Mendoza recalls, 'Gaylord encouraged us to record, he engineered the tracks. This was still early in Gaylord's career when he working at Rick Keefer's studio.' Vince and his brother Del then took the tapes to the local radio station and gave them to Frank B. Shaner, who played the tape on-air - immediately people started calling in to ask about the song. All the ingredients were in place to make a smash hit record - take the island's most popular R&B band, put them into Hawaii's top studio with a reputable engineer, and craft a ballad (and disco-boogie groove) for all the lovers and dancers out there. Then, play the tapes over the airwaves for all of Hawaii to hear.Even Tom Moffatt heard it. The legendary promoter and music executive was convinced that 'When The Feeling's Right' and 'Stop' should be released on a 45, so he pursued the band to press both tracks through his Bluewater imprint. 'When The Feeling's Right' quickly became a massive hit with locals - especially at high school proms. Ask an uncle or aunty today what local high school ballad they remember the most, and it's this: a timeless ballad with soul and style.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
