• AVSCD068

For a sweet trip down memory lane, when jug bands could sing about “dreaming of a reefer five foot long” (‘If You’se a Viper’) look no further than this superb reissue of Wangaratta Wahine by Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band.

Originally issued on vinyl back in 1974, Wangaratta Wahine was a big seller, hitting #4 on the Australian charts and making the band a major attraction.

Beautifully re-mastered sound by the ever-reliable Gil Matthews, the audio quality is indeed impressive with sonic dynamics that reveal the full spectrum of sound on offer.

Packaged in a Limited Deluxe 6 panel digi-pak, featuring a 24 page booklet with with rare photos and liner notes by noted Australian Rock author Ian McFarlane.
