Post 509 - Fielding & Dyer – The Whale – Bay Street Coventry

Terry Fielding and Fred Dyer met at a practice session for a group that included Fred and his brother Frank. They formed a friendship and started work at the same firm in the NSW city of Wollongong. They shared a mutual interest in song writing and with suggestions from Donnie Sutherland they contacted Essex Music with whom they signed a record contract. They performed in and around clubs in Sydney and in 1972 they co-wrote and released “The Whale” b/w “Bay Street Coventry” (EK-4574) for Spin Records. The single was produced by Gus McNeil. Thanks to Hugh for getting this record to me for the Blog. I’ve had many requests for this one.

Thanks for this rare single--never heard the 'B' side. The 'A'
side I had on "20 Dynamic Hits"
from 1972 (now in very poor condition!).
