DICK JENSEN - A DISCOGRAPHY



Here's a discography of the sadly missed Hawaiian singer, dancer, actor and performer Dick "The Giant" Jensen that I compiled gathering together different sources. I guess that it's far to be complete but I'll try to add more pictures and info at a later date.

If you have any useful information about Dick Jensen - especially corrections and improvements to this discography - please get in touch with me at stereocandies [at] hotmail [dot] com or leave a comment in the box below, thank you!
