Holy Morning: The Rumour (New Zealand band)

This 1972 ‘kind-of-compilation’ album is The Rumour’s third, issued by Polydor on the Karussell imprint. My copy found today is in excellent condition, and valued at $30-50. Not to be confused with Graham Parker’s band in England, the band had its origins in the 1960s in the Huntly/Hamilton area (where I now live). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rumour_(New_Zealand_band) http://www.sergent.com.au/music/rumour.html […]

Claude Bampton was fully sighted and led an all-blind band.
