25 Dec 02 ·: Is the Datura Dreamtime CD still in print and available. I'm a big fan of UK psychedelic pop, but haven't heard much Aussie psych.
06 Sep 04 ·: The track Naturally was released in Australia in June 1970. Alison Gros were Graham Goble, Russ Johnson & John Mower. The 3 later changed their name to Mississippi & had considerable success with their 1972 self titled L.P. plus 3 singles, Kings Of The World (1972) Early Morning ('73)& Will I ('74)
Graham Goble went on to form Little River Band with later members of Mississippi and of course had considerable success in the US during the mid '70's to early '80's.
Russ Johnson later played with another popukar Oz band Country Radio.
01 Jun 08 ·: Just thought I'd add a little extra info about "Naturally". It was written by my father Russ Johnson and was released on the South Australian label Gamba. Phil Cuneen produced it and also played sitar on the song. I love the sounds produced on this song, a true Australian gem. My dad wrote this song in 1970, just after arriving from London in late 1969.
