For many people, Sherbet started with the release of Howzat, soon after Harvey James replaced Clive Shakespeare. Nothing could be further from the truth – some of their best work including Child’s Play, You’ve Got The Gun, Summer Love and this one were pre-Howzat.

In this film clip, you can see the original line up, including Shakespeare performing at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney. Some dismiss Sherbet as being lightweight but I really rate their work, particularly from the mid to late 70’s.

Cassandra … we’re bound by your spell.
