    I made a thread about these guys on another forum and I don't think anybody knew who they were. They were / are a Kiwi band, who had bigger hits in the seventies than the eighties. But in 1983, they released Rain, a top 3 hit in Australia. Marc Hunter, the lead singer, died in 1998 from cancer. They were also briefly known as Hunter. :)

    O Zambezi released in 1978.

    Are You Old Enough


    Dragon bombed out in the US when they came here to tour. I take it they toured the US in 1978 with Johnny Winter....

    Their 2nd album from 1974. I really like their earlier works, where they were more of a Prog band. :grinthumb

    Scented Gardens for the Blind Parts 1,2,3
