La De Das - Gonna See My Baby Tonight

Gonna See My Baby Tonight/Fare TheeWell 

The La De Das were a leading New Zealand rock band of the 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in New Zealand in 1963 (as The Mergers), they enjoyed considerable local success in this period in both countries until their split in 1975. The band is probably best known as the launching place for the career of guitarist Kevin Borich, and for their recording of one of the first concept albums to be recorded in Australia, The Happy Prince in 1968.
"Gonna See My Baby Tonight" was released in 1971 and became their highest placed single #12 nationally. The great thing about this single is the B-side "Fare The Well " can't recommend it too highly a mainly acoustic piece just ambles along but I love it. Phil Keys co-wrote this and it's just magic.
