Moondoggs – Turning Point – Obscure dose of Aussie Heaviness (1971)

Moondoggs – Felicity/Turning Point – ATA -ATAK 4460 (Australia 1971)

Here’s a very obscure Grillfat sizzler from OZ. There is very little in the way of information available, however it seems that Moondoggs might have shared at least a couple of members with Toby Jug. 

Recorded at A.T.A studios in Sydney, it’s the B side that is of most interest. Starting off in subdued fashion, the track then plunges into Heavy plodding dirge mode and features some neat sustained lead going all Eastern before reverting to its Caucasian origins. The A side is just a weird novelty tune of limited appeal
