The Geelong Rhythm Collective Demo

Colin, from way down south, has bought us another
rare and wonderful gem. So let me pass you over.
Thanks Colin.

I'm afraid I can't tell you a hell of a lot about this group.
This tape, released in 1985, is the only release I know of
by them. The band featured Dave Steel, but that's all I can
tell you. It doesn't help that the players are identified only
by initials or first name. I thought Jeff Raglus might have
been involved in this, but it doesn't appear so.

It's a curious collection of music, with touches of reggae,
jazz and calypso. A couple of the song titles reference places
around Geelong, such as Corio Bay and the Bellarine Penninsula.

And that's all I can tell you ...
