Posted on January 28th, 2013 by Chris.

Radio NZ Archives hold copies of this award winning documentary / performance which is available on request. My friends still stand and while they do more notice should be taken of their contributions to music. They should be recognised for these fantastic recordings made in RNZ Gloucester Street’s 3YA Studios, Christchurch, NZ in 1960’s and ’70’s.
