Bari & The BreakawaysSea Cruise & Album Two

Long out of print 1992 issued cd. Insert booklet and disc are in excellent condition. Back insert has minor faint marking

Featuring both Bari & the Breakaways albums ( Let's take a Sea Cruise & Album Two) - both originally released in 1966. Bari & the Breakaways were a Wellington based R& B group ,the original line up - Bari Gordon (Lead Guitar) Dave Orams (Bass) Keith "Midge" Marsden (Rhythm Guitar) Bryan Beauchamp (Lead Vocalist / Drums).
 In 1965 they signed to HMV Records and their first single was a cover of the Who's "I Can't Explain", backed with a copy of the Kinks "Long Tall Shorty". A second single, a copy of Frankie Ford's "Sea Cruise", backed with "Tough Enough" was released in October 1965. "Sea Cruise" was the groups biggest and most well known hit. After what had been a very successful year, Midge Marsden was called up for compulsory military service and Bari decided to leave the group to get married. Bari's last single was a Swinging Blue Jeans song called "Old Man Mose". Dave and Bryan recruited Dave Hurley to replace Bari. They shortened their name to just the Breakaways and played in Nelson for a while until Midge rejoined them and they moved on to Christchurch. They finished recording their first album in May 1966. It was released as "Let's Take A Sea Cruise With The Breakaways" and included songs from Bari's era. Other singles were recorded, "A Travelled Man" and "Despair", and in December 1966 the "Album Two" was released. The group finally broke up by mid 1967.
 Dave Orams later played with Tom Thumb, the Bitter End, the Underdogs and Quincy Conserve. Doug Thomas showed up in other groups, Le Frame and the Underdogs. Midge Marsden joined Radio New Zealand for a number of years before getting the urge to get back into the music, so he formed the Country Flyers, one of the more popular country-rock bands of the seventies. The Breakaways enjoyed the distinction of being the first full-time R&B group in the country. Meanwhile, Bari Gordon, who had moved back to New Plymouth, kept his hand in by singing with various groups. He ran a night club and had been working as a promoter. But sadly it all came to an end when he died of natural causes in 1969 at the young age of 22.(with thanks to Bruce Sergent)
