Pyramid - I Can' t Wait For September (Featuring Erl Dalby)



I Can't Wait For September/Let Me Be Yours Until Tomorrow





'Can't Wait for September' was released in November 1970 on Du Monde Records (SDM-325) and entered the Go-Set Top 60 at #51 on Boxing Day 1970, and peaked at #24 before sliding back down the charts.



There is quite a little story about how and who actually recorded this single whether it was actually Erl's Court a popular Woolongong band of which Erl Dalby was a member prior to this singles release or Pyramid the band that Dalby hooked up with after Erl's Court's demise .


The full story can be found here.


And a special thanks to egro over at Midastouch Internet Radio for his excellent work in restoring this single for me.

  4. Funny thing for me is I actually saw Pyramid perform for a whole night in Sydney's western suburbs in 1969 and pretty sure they had 3 singers, which was surprising at the time as Three Dog Night were little known.

    And I remembered them as a hard rock psychedelic band - they did a fantastic version of Born to be Wild. So when this song came out I was puzzled. Now I've tracked down Russell Bayne, the 1969 guitarist http://russellbayne.com/5306/

    Also I see that Earl Dalby sadly died this year:
