Thru The Southern Moonlight/Smoke On Down The Line/Sunshine Music Days/It's Enough/Greyest Morning Blue/Take A Stronger Look/Good Old Rock N Roll/Lady Love/Loving's For Free/Wind Chimes/Morning Of Your Love/Down Main/Shuffle Shuffle
I had a request for a new link for this one I originally posted this in the comments of the other Rocking Horse post Grand Affaire as it was not my rip. It was originally posted at Midoztouch so thanks to the original uploader. This time round I thought I might give it a bit more exposure by giving it a proper post.
Formed in Wellington in the mid-seventies, Rockinghorse were a local supergroup and became house band at EMI. The original lineup included former Fourmyula members Wayne Mason and Carl Evenson, with Clinton Brown and Keith Norris from Rebirth and Taylor, plus the Pleazer's Bruce Robinson. The third single from the album (following 'Good Old Rock & Roll' and 'Take A Stronger Look') was 'Thru The Southern Moonlight', a significant radio hit in 1975 and a staple of future NZ hits compilations. The first of two albums, 'Thoroughbred' was an excellent mix of country and funk influenced pop/rock and was produced by Alan Galbraith with Michael Grafton-Green at the desk. The cover featured original artwork from Kevin Dunkley and the original New Zealand EMI release sold well enough to warrant an Australian issue, on Polydor.
