The rollicking Manawatu was popularised by American balladeer William Clauson, and recorded by him on HMV EP record Be Japers! The song had previously been a winner in a folksong contest sponsored by the radio Book Shop programme in Palmerston North in 1958. Ashley Heenan arranged the song for the recording.
