Sir Howard Maori medley
Not great audio quality, but you get Sir Howard's great swinging 60s beat-combo versions of some Maori tunes... not a million miles from the Neketini Brass...
In 1966, Sir Howard starred in a great Kiwi pop movie/musical extravaganza called Don't Let It Get You (directed by John O'Shea), here he is singing the theme tune, a marvellous uptempo groover... dude sure could swing... You can watch the full film at NZOnScreen.
There were only three feature films made in NZ between the end of WWII and 1972, and John O'Shea was responsible for all of them.
