New Zealand Music: The Great New Zealand Songbook

This is a piece of light-hearted true Kiwiana.  42  of the very best NZ music tracks from this century and the end of the last, carefully compiled to create a wonderful gift set. Beautifully presented on 2 CDs with a scrap-book style book of lyrics, clippings and the musicians own hand-written notes. We can't list them all here, but some of the gems include Give it a Whirl (Split Enz), Whaling (DD Smash), Wandering Eye (Fat Freddies Drop), April Sun in Cuba, and so many more.

While it is not printed in New Zealand, it would be hard to find a more home-grown compilation, and will be adored by those in their 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's. Wonderful NZ gifts to send to the Kiwis who have flown overseas; it is probably enough to make them want to come home!
