The songs on the first album were primarily about the migration of Māori from the mythical Hawaiki. These include ''Nga Waka'', about the seven canoes in the migration. Some of the tracks on this album were recorded in the Waitomo Caves. It received a mixed review in the ''Te Ao Hou'' magazine. Of the recording in the caves the reviewer reported "For some unexplained reason some of the tracks in this album were recorded in Waitomo caves. A romantic thought perhaps, but the record neither gains nor loses from the fact". While stating "its version of ‘Pokarekare’ will stand out as easily one of the best recordings of this much used and abused song", it also critisised "a remarkably dispirited rendition of ‘Ka Mate’ which has my vote as one of the most spineless haka renditions on record".
