    MOST TRACKS ON CD FOR THE FIRST TIME includes 16 page booklet

    A chronological journey through the singles collection of one of New Zealand’s more popular and interesting groups from the late 60s- early 70s. Originally formed in mid-1967 to showcase group leader Mike Balcombe’s burgeoning songwriting ability. Chris Parfitt (the group’s vocalist) also started writing material and over the next 2 years, the group released a series of unique homegrown singles which until now have mostly never been on CD before. What makes this collection unique is the diversity of material which embraces most genres from this period including pop, pop psych, Motown, baroque and rock.

    The group’s hits including: ‘A Tropic of Capricorn’, ‘Rain & Tears’ and ‘Elevator’ are all here and they stand proudly next to the other 9 singles...including an unreleased 1972 single from CABOOSE (their later incarnation).

    Chris Parfitt (the group’s vocalist) left the group just after they won the 1969 Loxene Gold Disc Award for ‘Rain & Tears’ which was also a national # 1 record. The group shortened their name to the Tongues and released an album and 2 singles before heading to Australia where they became CABOOSE who left behind 1 single and an unreleased album and single.
