THE HIDDEN YEARS MUSIC ARCHIVE presents - NO EASY WALK TO FREEDOM - composed by Roger Lucey in 1984 Crown Mines Johannesburg; a dedication to the leaders on ROBBEN ISLAND. This was the first of a few versions, performed & recorded here by TIGHTHEAD FOURIE & THE LOOSE FORWARDS with LOS BALLAS TRIOS at The Free Peoples Concert in 1986 & filmed by ROGER HARRIS; compiled & edited in November of 1986 by MIRANDA HARRIS & DAVID MARKS with borrowed 'news' events (go on... sue us!!) from the early to mid-1980's, filmed for 'foreign' TV only, by news cameramen ROGER LUCEY, ROGER HARRIS, CRAIG MATHEWS & others... TV news footage that was banned from broadcasting or distribution in the RSA at the time. TIGHTHEAD FOURIE & THE LOOSE FORWARDS were a band of closet C&W fans, dressed to kill, as it were. ROGER LUCEY as TIGHTHEAD FOURIE - in the ANC Colours (Vocals & Guitar); The LOOSE FORWARDS: JONNY BLUNDELL as RAY STADIG - (Lead Guitar); DAVID MARKS was LOURENCO MARQUES in UDF garb; (WARWICK SONY aka BEN ZINE also played Bass guitar on an occasion or two); BRIAN ROTH was Gene Parkering the drumist; LOS BALLAS TRIOS were TERRI LYN COHEN as TERRALENE CONE; PETER DAVIDSON as SLIM GEDAGTE & WILLIAM VON WITT was TENNESSEE FERREIRA. Help 3rd Ear Music preserve our Hidden Years Archive & perhaps put a historic 'perspective' to this Hidden History? Given the levels of corruption, greed & racism today, those who served on The Island have clearly been betrayed; so, where are the revolting new-age musicians who sing and say as much today? If nothing else... let's learn from history! (p)(c) 3rd Ear Music / Hidden Years Music Archive Project - visit www.3rdearmusic.com. ROGER LUCEY'S book BACK IN FROM THE ANGER now available (Jacana Press).
