The High Fidelity Recording Company was established in 1956 in Hollywood, California. Company president was Richard Vaughn. Five different labels - HiFi, Orbit, Arvee, Life and Tri-Disc.

HiFi, used primarily for jazz and popular with a heavy emphasis on organ records by George Wright and Hawaiian music by Arthur Lyman. By the standards of today (2007), most of the sounds from HiFi would fall under the term lounge or elevator music. Lyman was once a member of the Martin Denny Trio, so if the music sounds similar, there is a good reason. A & R (Artists & Repertoire) for the label was by Dave Axelrod and Chuck Weed.

Orbit, established in 1958 for singles (45s), used for popular, jazz, gospel, sound effects and spoken word, It shared the same numbering system for its line up of artists (single to album).

Arvee formed in 1959. The "Arvee" name was derived from the company president's initials, "R.V." A & R for the Arvee label was by Cliff Goldsmith and Fred Smith, with some production by Marty Cooper and H. B. Barnum. The label was for popular music, rhythm and blues.

The Tri-Disc label was red with black print, with "TRI DISC" in block letters curving around the top of the label, with a record with a triangle in it directly above the center hole between the "TRI" and the "DISC."

The HiFi labels were sold in the mid-1960s to the Everest label (best known for Gloria Lynne's catalog and a raft of grocery-store budget albums), and today remain part of "the Everest Group." Everest continued issuing albums after they acquired HiFi, and did quite well reissuing the Arthur Lyman catalog for several decades.

Sim Sim (S)/Katsumi Love Theme (S)/Caravan (S)/Akaka Falls (S)/Dahil Sayo (S)/Hilo March (S)
This album was the BIG one that put Arthur Lyman on the map. Taboo showcases Lymanís distinctive vibe playing while conjuring images of the islands through his use of birdcalls and Harold Changís percussion on congaís boobams, assís jaw and conch shell, among other instruments. Aided by Allen Soares on piano and John Kramer on string bass, Lymanís sound was immensely popular. On the Billboard charts for 62-weeks, Taboo peaked at number four and sold millions of copies - Cover Photograph by Werner Stoy

On this third album, Lyman explores his Hawaiian heritage while weaving in cool-jazz elements. Pacific Rim exotica meets American jazz. This album, while being more relaxing features an array of authentic Hawaiian instruments, including a paíI, puili and uliuli. One track, "Hawaiian War Chant" (in reality a love song and a well-known rhythmic chant) uses these native instruments, while another cut, "Hilawe," features Lyman himself on slack-key guitar. Liner Notes: Hawaiian Sunset is a sound painting of one of the most beautiful spots on earth, the Hawaiian Islands. Sounds of the sea, trade wind breezes through palm trees and the rainbow coloring of flowers are expressed in songs. Here we have programmed listening pleasure as beautifully simple and relaxing as the islands at sunset.

Assisting the group for this recording are Japanese vocalist Ethel Azama, pianist Paul Conrad and Chinese Chew Hoon Chang, who plays the rare butterfly, or moon harp, which must be re-tuned for each change of key. Chew Hoon Chang also plays a Chinese bamboo flute. Bird sounds are both real and imitative.

Liner Notes: The genius of the Arthur Lyman group recreates in music the legend of the Fire Goddess, PELE. Most of the tune titles are appropriate to sequences of the legend, starting with the title tune, PELE. In this, the opening number, you will hear the thunderous roar of a volcanic eruption, with the shrill cries of birds fleeing in the wake of flowing, molten lava. Also heard at the opening and closing is the chanting voice of Pele herself, actually and old, old, centuries-old woman who happily has the power to restore herself to youth and beauty when a romantic situation arises, and of course when she makes one of her appearances such as on this cover

Liner Notes: In the recording of this album, something new and startling has been added Ė a new dimension to the monophonic version called 3 D MONO sound. Everyone now knows what stereo is and what it sounds like. Also known is that mono sound, by comparison, lacks perspective and depth. Here for the first time, and exclusively on this label, you will now hear from the monaural recording a "3rd dimension". You will hear placement of the instruments as they were recorded, with piano to the left, vibes to the right, drums to the rear, and bass in the middle, NATURALLY and THRU ONLY ONE SPEAKER! Now, spectacular realism can be heard from conventional mono playback, lacking only the extreme separation popularly desired from the usual stereo playback. Listen and compare Ė itís great!

Arthur Lyman presents Hawaiian versions of holiday classics in this Exotica Christmas album. With his trademark use of exotic instrumentation, including vibes, marimba, ukelele, silver bells and conch shells, Lyman delivers a festive aural mai-tai sure to evoke surfing santas and ornament laden palms swaying in the tropical December breeze. This album was remixed and remastered from the original three-track master tapes and issued on compact disc Christmas of 1996. The cover art and track listings are different on the CD release but otherwise this long-out-of-print collection never sounded better

An 11-foot Baldwin Concert Grand Piano was used in this recording. Liner Notes: If you wish to escape the pressures and tensions of sophisticated commercialism, daily hypnosis of television, undercurrents of social and political tidal waves, then follow the sun to islands in the Pacific and find your peace in the trade winds of Polynesia and relaxed friendliness in Hawaii. More and more the searching traveler seems to find in the Hawaiian Islands an intangible but real elixer which rejuvenates the mind, body and spirit.

Liner Notes: Hawaiian Sunset, as the title says, is dreamier, more reflective music from those famed islands of the Pacific. Complete with the actual sounds of the surf, from the island of Oahu, the music of this album will pleasantly create for you the languorous illusion of gleaming white sand, waving coconut palms, and rolling bluer-than-blue waves Ė all sun drenched through a cloudless sky. With the further help of only one mai-tai you can be THERE!

Liner Notes: The Arthur Lyman Group has recorded here authentic Hawaiian and other Polynesian numbers, as well as exotic polynesian arrangements of familiar standards and current popular melodies. While this album was being recorded, the death of Sir Winston Churchill was announced to the world. It is said that the song "Waltzing Matilda", of Australian origin, was a favorite of Sir Winstonís. In humble sincerity, Arthur Lyman has dedicated the playing of "Waltzing Matilda" to the everlasting honored memory of Sir Winston Churchill. Arthurís arrangement starts quietly, builds to a dramatic climax with drum rolls remindful of artillery fire, and then fades into the distance. Cover Photograph by Werner Stoy, Camera Hawaii
