REVIEWS
Average points: 4.85 (Reviews: 48)
*****
Australische Band, die international nur diesen einen grossen Hit hatte. Und was für einer ... sehr schöner, groovender Soft Rock, mit fantasievoller Instrumentierung.

D 36, UK 4, USA 61

... Lead Sänger Daryl Braithwaite nahm später einige Solo-Alben auf, die allerdings ebenfalls erfolgreicher in der Heimat waren.

... die Band nannte sich später Sherbs.

Alles schon gesagt, so ist es ...
****
November/Dezember 1976.... 8 Wochen in NL "Charts"- # 8.
****
Nett anzuhörender Mainstream ohne Höhen und Tiefen.
*****
gute rockballade!
****
▓ Eind jaren '60 werd "Sherbet" één van de populairste bands "Down Under" !!! In 1976 scoorden ze hun eerste Australische # 1 hit "Howzat", waarmee ze "ABBA's" plaat "Fernando" na zestien weken (!!!) van die positie verdreven !!!

Door het succes richtten ze hun pijlen ook op de rest van de wereld !!! En met name in de VS wilden ze voet aan de grond krijgen !!! Dat lukte maar gedeeltelijk, en ze wilden tegelijkertijd ook hun Australische achterban niet teleurstellen !!!

Die tweestrijd zou in 1983 leiden tot het einde van de groep !!!

Hier Nederland stond "Howzat" van "Sherbet" in november / december 1976 in de Nederlandse Top 40 !!! (NL Top 40: 8 wk / # 9) !!!
*****
außergewöhnlich, gerade so aufgerundet.

Etwas funky, etwas schräg, etwas poppig. Etwas von allem. Netter Song mit Groove.

gefällt mir immer besser

so hört sich der perfekte Popsong an. Nach über 30 Jahren keine Abnutzungserscheinung. Volle Punktzahl!
*****
In der Tat schöner One-Hit-Wonder
****
Schließe mich in jeder Hinsicht der Meinung von "musicfreak" an.
*****
Released in 1976 off the 'Sherbet' album. This Australian classic is not a one off hit for Sherbet. Nor their lead singer Daryl Braithwaite who went on for a successful solo carear.
*****
Eine schöne Nummer aus den 70ern.
******
Unheimlich starker Song aus Down under. Einer der musikalischen Höhepunkte der 70er. Der Song stand im Juli 76 für 4 Wochen auf der # 1 in Australien und kam dann mit einigen Monaten Verspätung auch in die europäischen Charts.
*****
Ein One Hit Wonder 1976, immer wieder schön auzuhören. Guter Song ohne Frage!
*****
Geweldig nummer
*****
gefällt!
****
zu Larks Ausführungen kann ich noch ergänzen, dass sich die Band - bevor sie sich The Sherbs nannten, kurz Highway hiessen (die Single Heart get ready stand 1979 auf #89 in den australischen Singles Charts)...ansprechende Rockscheibe der Australier - 4+...

-sehr gut-
*****
Der Name der Band sagt mir nix mehr, aber der Refrain vom Song hat sich eingebrannt. Top Song, musste leider etwas suchen, alles was ich noch wusste war 'How's that'.
*****
De enige hit van deze Australische groep. Prima arrangement.
****
Aangename oldie van de formatie Sherbet uit het jaar 1976. Ook in Vlaanderen destijds terecht een hit!
***
4 weeks at #1 in 1976.


average track not the best i heard in the 70's
******
Fijne golden oldie.
*****
Great track.

Great track.

Leuke hit van de formatie Sherbet uit het jaar 1976.

Really nice
*****
Nog altijd een goed nummer om naar te luisteren.
******
A fun and catchy song!
*****
A '70s classic. The song that finally managed to end ABBA's 14 week run at #1 (in Australia) with Fernando. But it wasn't an easy battle. This waited at #2 for 3 weeks, then ABBA stubbornly held on at #2 for 3 weeks after their epic run at #1.
As they say, Howzat!

This track was ubiquitous for me growing up, being one that was played a lot by my parents and also one I heard elsewhere too. Sometimes this can be a disaster and it can ruin my chances of actually liking a song a lot and sometimes even lead to dislike/hate (see AC/DC's tracks as a general example of that), but with this track it has had the opposite effect. Even after lots of exposure I still enjoy hearing this and even though I don't have much interest in cricket, I find the lyrics really interesting. What grabs me most though is lead man Daryl, who's vocals are so good and compelling here. That coupled with the production and the blast of energy that comes with hook makes this a very satisfying listen. It's so enjoyable and sounds quite unique too. Iconic and classic Aussie track indeed.

Ich hatte diesen Song lange Zeit in den Tiefen meiner Sammlung, ohne zu wissen, wie gut der ist. Natürlich hatte ich jeden Song meiner Sammlung einst durchgehört, aber dieser erschien mir nicht hörenswert. Nachdem ich den Songtipp bekommen habe, hörte ich mich ein paarmal brav rein und siehe da - plötzlich finde ich ihn echt stark!
******
The bassline is superb. The verses are good in building up the song to an iconic Aussie anthem.
***
I totally don't care about this whatsoever tbh.
****
Evergreen aus den 70ern, nicht zwingend was für meine Playlist, aber durchaus okay.
*****
Der Refrain reisst's raus, von daher knapp eine 5 von mir!
Kam in den australischen Jahrescharts von 1977 auf #13 (4 Wochen #1)!
******
De beste plaat uit de lijst van 30.10.1976. Uit Australie kwam destijds veel goede muziek, waaronder dit.
****

...sehr gut...

In England waren die Australier mit dieser Single ein One-Hit-Wonder.

1976: #4 UK.
****
...gut...
******
Wow, genialer Titel. Das der nicht bekannter ist.

Sehe ich gerade in einem Musikladen vom 11. Dezember 1976.
