Ballyhoo –Rock ‘N’ Roll Party

Ballyhoo –Rock ‘N’ Roll Party/Lady Dreamer –RPM 489 (1977 South Africa)

This was the second single by South Africa’s Ballyhoo following on from their great version of Heart’s (The Dutch band, not the US lot) Lovemaker. For a single released in 1977 it still straddles a crunching Glam approach with a Rock ‘n’ Roll revival vibe. Although the tune may be a bit too sing-along for some, it still packs a pretty good punch with nifty production values. Ballyhoo later scored big in SA with Man On The Moon and appear to be still in existence today
