Spinning, Spinning, Spinning - Simple Image
Come With Me - Fourmyula
Little Bell That Cried - Simple Image
Rain And Tears - Hi-Revving Tongues
Grooviest Girl In The World - Simple Image
Forever - Fourmyula
Two Kinds Of Lovers - Simple Image
Tropic Of Capricorn - Hi Revving Tongues
Let's Think Of Something - Larry's Rebels
Nature - Fourmyula

I have no idea if they're all locally produced, I think they are though...
Not too difficult, I just need to remember to include other acts besides the Simple Image...

I'm not a kiwi but one of my favorite songs of all time and the universe is:

John Rowles: If I only had time.

I also listen often to:

Frankie Stevens: NZ National Anthem
Frankie Stevens: My elusive dream
Rangi Parker: Every day is Sunday
Rumour: Holy Morning
Creation: Carolina

Nice taste franas, John Rowles had/has one of the very best voices.

Holy Morning by the Rumour reached number 3 on the New Zealand Charts.
Have you heard Garden Of Your Smile and L'Amour Est L'Enfant De La Liberte by them, both great songs.

Hello kiwigold, I was only fortunate enough to be in NZ during the time Holy Morning was released. Recently, I was thrilled to find John Rowles singing a live version of If I only had time on Youtube. Hope to come back to visit NZ one day soon ...

Hi franas, have you seen this thread, Click Here it has a PROMO video of John Rowles "If I Only Had Time" and a great live version of "Cheryl Moana Marie"

I had the chance to see John Rowles a few months back in my home town but he became ill and the date was changed which did not suit me, BUGGER !!  Azn

Hello kiwigold, I checked and the promo video had been removed. It's probably the same one which I viewed earlier, a b/w video of a harbour scene where John Rowles lip-syned to the song. There was this "live" performance on youtube which I enjoyed even more. BTW, I happened upon this place when I was looking for "End of a rainbow" by Kamahl (Aussie) who popularized the song in NZ in the 70's. Skid is so kind to point to a place where I am able to purchase a used SP. I will check back here every now and then.

Hi Franas,
             I was in primary school and college with Rangi Parker. She was a good friend and I'm proud of being "instrumental" by introducing her to her husband(to be) at college.(And they're still together ! ! )
  She's one of a number of girls from her Marae who were gifted with beautiful voices. Her vocal group,the Shevelles, had a unique and exciting sound. They did very well both in N.Z. and Australia in the late 60's and 70's.

"Every Day Is Sunday" is a really neat song by Rangi Parker. (on the Loxene Golden Disc 1972 Album)

Yeah, really nice voice too.
