Hunter ,Althe Singer

Al Hunter started out performing in Blues and Soul bands in the late sixties and seventies before heeding the call of the Lost Highway in the eighties.Gifted with a voice equally at home with story-telling narratives and soaring ballads,and a strong set of his own material he set about forming a band that featured some of New Zealands finest.His 1987 debut album "Neon Cowboy"(currently unavailable) was recorded on a limited budget (hence electronic rhythm section) by Stuart Pearce ( Hello Sailor etc etc) and featured Dave Dobbyn guesting on a couple of tracks.The Al Hunter Band built a strong following in Auckland via their Saturday afternoon residency which invariably ended with a whiskey-fueled Hunter dancing on tables while playing guitar.It was this line up that recorded the bulk of the Singer album in a live for radio recording session.This album featured 12 original songs as well as tracks by Bob Dylan and Elvis. 'The Singer 'won critical acclaim and included the Top 5 single 'There's A Blue Sky Waiting For Me'. The album is generally acknowledged as a landmark album in NZ Country music .Highly recommended
