70's NZ Classic Rock - Dragon

From what I have heard and read, these guys were quite popular down-under back in the 70's. Here's a quick bio:
Dragon was one of Australasia’s top groups from the mid 70’s to mid 80’s. After two moderately successful albums for Polygram NZ, Dragon moved to Australia in 1975 and by 1978 had conquered that country also with smash singles like 'April Sun in Cuba', 'Are you Old Enough' and 'Still in Love With You'.

The classic line-up from 1975 – 1979 consisted of Marc Hunter, Todd Hunter, Paul Hewson, Robert Taylor and various drummers. In 1998 Raven via EMI released two compilations of Dragon recordings; a single disc greatest hits called 'Snake Eyes on the Paradise' and a double album called 'Tales From the Dark Side' which included the greatest hits plus a disc of collectible items including Marc Hunter solo material.

Dragon are an important part of Kiwi music history, Dragon was known world-wide. Formed in the 70's, they are known best for their hits 'April Sun in Cuba' and 'Are You Old Enough'.
This is their big 1977 hit, "April Sun in Cuba."
