Sherbet - Time Change A Natural Progression (1972 australia, nice mixture of glam, prog, roots soft rock)

Daryl Braithwaite joined Sherbet in 1970, initially as a second lead vocalist. However, Laughlin left the band within a matter of months and Braithwaite then became Sherbet's sole lead singer. By early 1972, after much turnover, Sherbet's line-up had solidified to include lead vocalist Braithwaite, Shakespeare on guitar, bassist Tony Mitchell, keyboard player Garth Porter, and drummer Alan Sandow. The band released their first album ("Time Change...A Natural Progression") in 1972. The accompanying single "You've Got The Gun" (written by Shakespeare, Porter and Braithwaite) was Sherbet's first self-penned A-side, and charted at a respectable #27.
