Formed in the mid-sixties, The Fourmyula earned the title 'New Zealand's Beatles' for being the first local band to insist on recording their own material, resulting in a spectacular run of hits. The Fourmyula consolidated in the line-up of Wayne Mason (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Ali Richardson (bass, vocals), Martin Hope (guitar, vocals), Carl Evensen (Vocals) and Chris Parry (drums). This is the group that appeared on all the recordings and that played again in 2010. Radio New Zealand was there to record one of the most important groups in New Zealand music history playing in a rare and significant reunion. Recorded and produced by Andre Upston for Radio New Zealand National the songs are: Come With Me, Lift Your Head, Turn Your Back On The Wind, Believe In Love, I'll Sing You A Song, Nature, Molly, Otaki.
