TIME COMES AROUND brings together one disc some of the standout recordings of one of New Zealand’s longest-running bands, Wellington’s WINDY CITY STRUGGLERS.
Most of the songs have appeared on previous albums, have been performed extensively on stage by the Strugglers over the years and are time-tested favourites. Also featured are two hitherto unreleased songs, recorded just this year (AH OUI, & WHEN THE TANKS ROLL IN).
Though formed in the late 60s as a jug band specializing in vintage country-blues, the Strugglers’ recording career only really began in 1989 when BILL LAKE and RICK BRYANT decided to record some of this material for WE’RE IN THE SAME BOAT, BROTHER, Inspired by the results, the Strugglers became increasingly active over the following decade, performing around New Zealand and recording two award-winning albums.
Over the years the music has evolved into a free-ranging style that reflects the taste of individual Strugglers & continues to echo the band’s formative influences.
