Lights Of The Pacific: The Very Best Of Herbs

Lights Of The Pacific: The Very Best Of Herbs

Herbs came together thirty years ago this year, in a time of societal upheaval, Maori awakening and land rights struggles, a global shift in indigenous consciousness, and all against the background of Muldoon's vice-like hold on power and later a Springbok rugby tour which divided the nation.

In recent years contemporary groups like Fat Freddys Drop, Katchafire and House of Shem (led by former Herbs member Carl Perkins) have cited Herbs as inspirational pioneers.

For this 30th anniversary compilation, 16 classic Herbs originals have been compiled by founder member Dilworth Karaka, and also included is a new version of Sensitive To A Smile by Hollie Smith.
