Yokomo. Fee now, eh?

May 25, 2011

John Dix has sent word about this rare clip. It shows Dinah ‘Blue Beat’ Lee performing one of her other hits, a cover of the New Orleans classic ‘Don’t You Know, Yokomo’. Filmed in Whangarei, it is apparently the only known footage of the Premiers performing. Most had originally been in the Swamp Dwellers in Wellington and moved to Auckland. They are Peter Hindmarsh (bass), Jimmy Ellyett (lead guitar), Mike Shackleton (rhythm guitar), Andy Shackleton (drums), with Graeme Sumers on Sax. Peter Posa can be seen in the background. There are some drop outs in the sound.
