Single on Impact.

Early in 1969 Larry Morris went solo after fronting Larry's Rebels, one of New Zealand's top bands of the late 60s. They had five Top 10 hits at their peak, 1967-68, making them one of the most successful local acts on the NZ charts for the decade. The band continued as The Rebels (see My Son John), and Morris himself had six singles on the NZ charts 1969-1983, including The Hunt (1969, #5 NZ) and The Game (1970, #8 NZ).
