A stunning new digitally re-mastered collection of Pixie Williams' songs. Featuring 13 tracks in total, ‘For the Record’ includes her much loved, and best known recording of “Blue Smoke”. The sound quality of these recordings is outstanding!

Pixie Williams' incredible voice can now be clearly heard, as can each instrument, brought together again in perfect harmony as if the band were performing, and being recorded today. Recorded 60+ years ago, these songs have never sounded so good.

Pixie Williams was a shooting star of New Zealand music – a clear, bright magical voice, a brief luminous career, a brilliant flash of light that lives on as a memory for some – both distant and familiar. Pixie Williams couldn't read music but taught herself to play guitar, ukulele, the banjo and piano accordion. At age 73 she decided to teach herself the organ – for something to do. With the death of her husband in 2007, Pixie left Dunedin 57 years after stopping in on her holiday for a week or two. Today, at the age of 82, she lives in Wellington and still loves to sing, whistle and hum her way through each day.

“Music – it's what keeps you going through good times and bad. It kept me sane in the hard times. Forget the pills. When you've got music in your life – you'll be ok.”
