Another unique collection of classic kiwiana from yesterday and today!
‘KIWIANA Goes Pop Volume 2’ includes two songs recorded for the 2011 Rugby World Cup - The Miramar Chess Club’s ‘I’ll Never Be An All Black’ featuring Rugby commentators past and present & Heimlich Manouevres In the Park who caused a sensation during the RWC with their ‘24 Years’ track which makes its CD debut on this collection.
Tim Finn chips in with his ‘Runs In the Family’ which was recorded to celebrate NZ Cricket’s 100th Anniversary.
Iconic advertisements that became hits include The Warratah’s ’InterIslander’, John Grenell’s ‘Welcome To Our World’, Al Hunter’s ‘There’s A Blue Sky Waiting For Me’ and Wayne Mason’s version of ‘Nature’ as featured on the butter ads.
Also included are Billy T. James’ ad for Auckland’s MOTAT museum, Fiona McDonald singing the perfect pop jingle for Columbine Hosiery while Annie Crummer and Bunny Walters turn in some of their most soulful vocals ever for Soda Stream and Uncles burgers respectively.
