During the 1960s Robbie Porter recorded under the name Rob E. G. His big instrumental hit in the early years was "55 Days in Peking".

Robbie had a solo vocal 7" single issued in 1970 called "
Gemini". It has not made it to CD.

Following much early 1970's success with his Sparmac music label (first single issue was Zoom Gonk by Blue Forest), in 1973 Robbie formed a new partnership with Steve Binder resulting in the Wizard label.

Some of Australia's best known performers recorded for the label, from long established acts to major new successes. The label also had a subsidiary called Miracle Records.

Wizard also re-issued much of the Sparmac catalogue which Porter still owned.

Ten years after opening Wizard, he sold it to RCA music. Porter still has the master tapes of many Sparmac/Wizard recordings which have subsequently never been released.

This download is a full wave file of "
Gemini" (a large file for such a short song).

Enjoy the quality!
