Recorded live to air on Massey University’s Munt FM in 2003 by ‘The Deprogrammers’ (Sam and Smiley Stephens). Featuring Robyn Kenealy’s lovely voice on Lamplight. Everything else played and sung by Dick Whyte and his Golden Guitar. Released on CD by Postmoderncore Records (where you can also listen to it, or download it for free). Also available via the Internet Archive.

“Richard (Dick) Whyte comes from New-Zealand, as does the excellent label Postmoderncore (which is one of the first labels in the world to have adopted a license of free diffusion). He is a songwriter of very first order, who plays songs on a wobbly guitar, and sings with a sincere voice, expression and heart. I spent this sleepless white night listening to the songs off his CDR Wireless recorded live on the radio. Let’s go again for a track which excites my brain and tears the hairs off my beard: ‘When you Decide’ (sounds country-folk à la Ryan Adams).” (Dana Hilliot, Songs to the Sirens, translated from the original French)

“A talented folk and country performer who has been performing his ever increasing song book of originals and favourite songs for some years. His powerful and flexible voice and keen sensibilities on the guitar make him always worth seeing.” (Sam Stephens, Postmodern Records website)
