Post 471 - Doug Parkinson – Sailin’ (Sydney-Hobart) – Sailin’ (Sydney-Hobart)(Instrumental)

Douglas "Doug" Parkinson is an Australian singer who first came to fame with his band, Doug Parkinson In Focus, in 1969. He has had numerous hits on the Australian Top 40 charts. This single here for you is from 1984 “Sailin’ (Sydney-Hobart)” b/w “Sailin’ (Sydney-Hobart) (Instrumental)”
(OZ-1414) recorded on OZ Records. Produced by Peter J Martin who also co-wrote the song. The B side is credited to The Kites which I would assume was Doug’s backing band for this single. Engineered by Richard Lush and recorded at Paradise Studios, Sydney.
