History Lesson: Mother Earth

The year is 1973, and the singer is Renee Geyer. Band members include Jim Kelly, Mark Punch, Russell Dunlop and Harry Brus. Unfortunately Mother Earth never released any records, but did record many live performances for ABC’s GTK (Get To Know) music program. The program often featured Melbourne and Sydney’s finest players covering Motown hits and soul classics. Many of the musicians featured here went on to become The Renee Geyer Band and also featured in noteable Australian bands like Johnny Rocco Band and Jeff St John – as well as playing with the likes of Judy Bailey and Sven Libaek. If you like this check out bassist Harry Brus’ YouTube channel.
