Out of print used item in very good condition

Herma Keil & The Keil Isles formed in 1957 but the Samoan family had previously played together to perform for the Morman Church they all attended. The popular early line-up featured pianist Brian Henderson, saxophonist Bill Fairs, bassist Louis Miller, and the Keils, Eliza (vocals), Herma (vocals and rhythm guitar), Olaf (band leader and lead guitar) and Klaus (drums). Freddie Keil also played with the band for a short time before striking out on his own as Freddie Keil & The Kavaliers. The Keil Isles were picked to open for Cliff Richard and The Shadows on their 1961 tour, then the following year for the visit by Bobby Rydell and Del Shannon.
The group went through many line-up changes during their ten years in the spotlight with many great musicians at some stage playing for the group including Roger Skinner on guitar, Billy Christian on bass, and Jimmy Hill on drums. In fact it was this group of players that performed as The Keil Isles, in 1967, as the resident band on the TV pop show, C'Mon.In their ten years together they recorded twenty singles, six EP's and seven albums. This twenty track compilation includes classics like Say Mama, Goodnight Irene, Quarter To Three, and The Twist, the biggest seller for Herma, recorded initially because the NZBC had refused to play Chubby Checker's original version, considering it to be too noisy.
