Dave Miller & Leith Corbett - Reflections Of A Pioneer 1970
The LP was released in around September 1970 with the evocative title Reflections Of A Pioneer, from Dave's song of the same name which was in part a tribute to his grandfather, who had died not long before in New Zealand. The title track was also lifted for a single, backed by Leith's rocky 323527 Charles. For many years the album has been one of the most sought-after collector's items of the period, but happily it was remastered and re-released on CD in 2000 by Vicious Sloth.
An unexpected opportunity opened up for Dave at the press reception for Reflections -- he was approached by Soundblast magazine to write for them, and within a short time he became one of their regular writers. His work for Soundblast also led him to meet many visiting overseas stars including the members of Led Zeppelin and Yes.
