Some would call it a golden era for NZ Music, a lot of time time it was more a rather grubby yellow colour, though that grubbiness was despite rather than because of the music.
This is a lovely mix of styles – jazz, ska/reggae, and a hint of Stax-Volt soul.
And that vocal! There is something very ‘strong Kiwi sheila’ about the contralto – is that the right term? – tones of the lead singer.
This came out around mid-1983. Picked up the EP in the Whakatane rekkid store, use to play it on Saturday mornings while I washed my work shirts in a bucket.
