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 […]
The artwork caught my attention, then I noticed the names, then the interesting instrumentation. Recorded in Los Angeles in 1981, and featuribg lits of reeds and brass, with an obvious Eastern influence.
The most surprising find this week is this 1982 album, acknowledged as the first classical-pop collaboration. She’s now in music education and moved into opera as a mezzo-soprano after this and a follow-up album. Plenty of synthesiser evident, it’s a creative and highly enjoyable album, very well recorded. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Tucker

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