Post 629 - The Nocturnes - Riptide - Prairie

The Nocturnes were a Sydney instrumental band which later became The Whispers when fronted by Ray Brown in 1964. The had the residency at Sydney’s Beach House and Surf City gigs once Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs started touring interstate. Sounding very much like The Shadows and Atlantics they played around the Kogarah Bay area and released two singles under this name before changing it after teaming up with Ray Brown. Here to download is their first single “Riptide” b/w “Prairie” (LK-482) released on Leedon Records in 1963. Thanks to Paul for sending me this gem and a heap of other singles to post on the Blog.
