Top Kiwi session musician Doug Jerebine went to London in late 1968 after a spell with The Brew.
He changed his name to Jesse Harper played bass with Jeff Beck, recorded an album that would become a underground classic (can anyone name that album ?) and formed the World Band with another Kiwi Mike Donnelly on drums.
They played London, toured Holland and turned down a recording deal with EMI.
Human Instinct ended up recording seven of his songs on their first two albums.

I was talking to Wally Wilkinson about Doug Jerebine a while ago - Wally was the original guitarist in Split Enz and knew Doug in the old days. The acetate he made in the sixties was released on vinyl in the late nineties and was cleaned up for a CD issue by Kissing Spell. You can buy it from www.vinylsolution.com

According to this site the real story of what happened to Doug Jerebine will be revealed in a forthcoming book called "Instinct for Survival".
The book will cover the whole Human Instinct story with a full chapter dedicated to Doug Jerebine, another to Billy T. K and other musicians and bands who were influential during the 60s and 70s.

The site also includes the cover art from the Doug Jerebine (Jesse Harper) LP "Guitar Absolution in the Shade of a Midnight Sun" ...

Most of those unique compositions were re-recorded by Human Instinct within a year of the original sessions, helping propel them to cult status in the world of underground music. Tapes of Harperís recording session found their way back to New Zealand and into the hands of his contemporaries including Harvey Mann and unauthourised copies of an album released by Kissing Spell sold widely to contemporary rock enthusiasts for several decades. While in England Jessie Harper recorded an album full of original material, and this music was finally released in 1992 by Kissing Spell. The album was called "Guitar Absolution In The Shadow Of The Midnight Sun". The cover image is "The Agony In The Garden, Studio Of El Greco, 16th Century".

Many musicians from the New Zealand 60ís era have a Doug Jerebine story. When playing Shadows tunes he got the Hank Marvin vibrato effect by bending the neck of   his guitar to adjust the string tension because it didnít have a whammy bar. He could easily mimic a Watkins Tape Echo by playing a lead guitar line a fraction after the beat with his pick technique. This Aussie band is really rocking!

Jerebine has finally authorised the first "official" release on the Drag City label. For some reason it's an LP/MP3 only release (no CD).  Same songs as the Kissing Spell version but in a different order and in some cases different titles, which is a little confusing.

There's a favorable write-up in the NZ Herald.

There were actually two issues on Kissing Spell - the reissue with the orange cover has better sound quality and liner notes than the original issue with the El Greco cover.

*bump* The album has now been reissued on CD by Imperial Records with five bonus tracks - three from Jerebine with The Brew, one lengthy 2011 live track from The World Band, and what I can only assume is a previously unknown/unreleased track from the 1969 London demos, "The Whole World's Hangin' on My Side".  According to this retailer the CD is a New Zealand-only release.
