This was Willow’s first New Zealand folksong, composed in 1957. It was written because she couldn’t find any New Zealand folksongs at the time, so she decided to write one. Celebrating what Willow liked best about Auckland (pre harbour bridge days), this song led to many other New Zealand folksongs. It was recorded by The Mariners on Kiwi EP The Four Cities and Two Gold Towns in 1961.

Arranged by Dorothea Franchi.
