South African band from Vereeniging, formed in 1966 by Hennie Botha (bass) and Mike Nosworthy (keyboards). In March of that year they were joined by Keith Taylor (vocals), Pierre Odendaal (lead guitar) and Jan Labuschagne (drums). Being unable to find regular gigs in the Vereeniging / Vanderbijl Park area, they started performing in and around Johannesburg on a regular basis. When this album was recorded, the band members were: Keith Taylor (vocals); Gary Smith (vocals); Jack Mouton (guitar); Mike Nosworthy (farfisa); Hennie Botha (bass); Jan Labuschagne (drums). The band was together until early 1970 when Keith decided to return to the U.K. and Pierre decided to go solo. Jan got married and quit the band, leaving only Hennie and Mike (again). Subsequently the band was augmented with George Cellier (lead vocals), Hans von Burg (trumpet) and Innes van Niekerk (drums). The band then seemed to “gel” together well, and started recording and appearing on TV regularly. They also travelled locally and abroad for functions. In 1980 Piet Strydom (sax) joined the band and was soon followed by Ramona Marais, who joined the band as an additional vocalist. All the members of the group sang harmonies and a few of them played more than one instrument. They cut a number of 7” singles, of which “Woogie Boogie” was the most successful. It reached #3 on the South African Top 20 in 1976, charting for 12 weeks. The band eventually split in 1983.

Очень здорово и романтично! Понравились больше всего каверы Stand by me, Summer in the city и Land Of A Thousand Dances!
Любителям бит-музыки 1960-х стоит скачать и послушать.
