Walters ,BunnyVery Best of Bunny Walters




Bunny Walters was a Maori pop vocalist born in Katikati who announced his arrival on the pop charts in 1972, reaching number four with the powerful hit Brandy. With the backing voices of The Yandall Sisters the single was in fact the fourth release from Bunny who had been discovered at a talent quest. His first single Just Out Of Reach crept into the top twenty in 1969 but the two follow-ups Itís Been Too Long (1970) and Canít Keep You Out Of My Heart (1970) all received airplay but failed to chart. Promoter and manager Benny Levin kept the faith and Brandy began a string of four successive chart hits over the next two years with Take The Money And Run reaching number two, remaining there for two weeks in October of í72. Home Isnít Home Anymore was released as the follow-up in February 1973,and reached number eighteen while Bunnyís last hit record Nearest Thing To Heaven peaked at number ten in August 1974. It appeared he was set for along career being particularly popular on the provincial hotel circuit but like Larry Morris, Bunny fell foul of the drug squad (possession of cannabis) and was no longer offered TV exposure or work in cabarets and virtually disappeared overnight. With such a great voice it is really sad that his recording career was limited to only one album. He resurfaced in the eighties as the voice behind scores of advertising jingles and made a brief appearance in Shortland Street but unfortunately Bunny Walters with all his talent was never truly appreciated. This Very Best Of release covers his singles released on the Impact label and favourite tracks from his album, Just Out Of Reach.
