Themes From An Empty Coffee Lounge - 33 Kiwi Guitar Instrumentals

[ Frenzy / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 3 June 2016

This compilation is the first ever excavation of one of Kiwidom's favourite musical genres and the sound of an entire generation - the 60s guitar instrumental as played by a host of local heroes.

A good example of how much we loved guitar instrumentals can be found in an April 1963 edition of New Zealand's only specialist music magazine at the time 'Teen Scene', of the eight local artists and groups featured, four were instrumental groups, one female singer, two male singers and a solitary vocal group.
