Recorded in mono at Radio Northland studios from 8pm till 2am over 2 sessions in 1979.

The Eclipse band was made up of Roger Ryken, Richard Maxwell, Robert Wallace and myself. This followed on from Richard (engineer at Radio N) hearing me play at a talent show at the DB Onerahi hotel. Which I came nowhere in.

Forever grateful.

Radio Northland gave all 8 tracks quite a lot of airplay. Thats when local radio actually meant it was produced for and supported the locals. The announcer could actually choose a disc or tape (cart) to play. It was not pre-programmed from Australia.
