Heart 'n' Soul
was based in Sydney, Australia
and was often referred to as a jazz/rock band. I joined the band in 1967.
was recorded at Festival
studios, Miller St, Pyrmont
and released in stores in May 1969. The hired string section for Lazy Life
was recorded at EMI
studios, Castlereagh Street Sydney
Apart from my disappointment that reverberation was added to the completed recording of "Lazy Life"
at the last minute,
and not a decision taken by the band at large, it did promote the band well.
As the band grew in popularity, the bigger the band became.
From singer, drums, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and 2 brass, it grew to include a
six piece brass/woodwind section, violinist and conga payer. So 13 young musicians produced a big sound
yet with a repertoire of many variations of music style, mood and dynamics, some stage antics thrown in.
From recording studios to radio stations and TV appearances, Heart 'n' Soul
was a dance band at some functions,
and a featured concert show band at others.

Singer and band leader Graeme Willington died last Tuesday 27 February 2018.
He had celebrated his 69th birthday earlier that day and died peacefully in his sleep. Those around him are in shock.
He was fit and there was no indication of medical problems beforehand.
The scatter of ashes on his beloved Palm Beach headland, next Aussie spring will be the only public function.
He leaves behind his brother Ian and Graeme's partner Annie and her son. He never had children of his own.
Always remembered as an energenic down to Earth, kind man, we will miss him.
See his recent photo and story in the album pages on or after page 129.
