Post 377 - Winter - I'm The Captain / Travelling Man

Winter played around Sydney to great acclaim through 1977-78. On the strength of some demo tapes they recorded, were signed to EMI records in 1978. "I'm the Captain" was the only single, released in August 1978. It was produced by Richard Lush, who had produced “Sherbet” and had worked as 2nd Engineer for the Beatles. The band appeared on Countdown, in sailor suits and on other TV shows (notably the ‘Super Flying Fun Show’) sadly, the tapes of the latter were lost. Here to download is Winter's one and only single "I'm The Captain" b/w "Travelling Man" (EMI-11717) for EMI Records. Band members were Greg Sita - lead vocals, Rod Crundwell - keyboards, vocals, Stafford Sanders - guitar, vocals, Billy Stevens - bass, vocals, Ken Stephenson - guitar, vocals and Paul Fenton - drums, vocals. The band split up at the beginning of 1979…but Rod, Stafford and Paul reunited in 2001 as Men with Day Jobs, and to be joined by Ken Stephenson for the "4 Characters" album in 2011. We would like to thank Rod Crundwell for the info for this post.
