Very fine powerpop record by this South African R'n'R group. It was released on a danish record label. How did it come about? I don't know. I haven't a record sleeve to this. 
I love this record!

# 567 V2 - Gee Whizz It's You

Side a: Gee Whizz It's You
Side b: Face In The Crowd
UK 1980
The track on the a-side is a cover of a Cliff Richard and the Shadows song while the b-side is a self-penned number. The story goes that the band was very unhappy with this record, bought the most of the records back and destroyed them all. Only a few records survived. Unconfirmed press quantity was 50. The recordings here are a bit unusual sounding, but not really bad. Sadly i haven't a proper cover. I hope you liked it like i do!


# 566 The Numbers - Working girl

Side a: Working girl
Side b: Count on me
USA 1982

Cool powerpop of this Laguna Beach/CA based band. "California girls" is a cover of a Beach Boys song while the b side is a self penned number. Released on their own "Ready go records". I haven't found more informations. Year of release is unclear. A good one!
