Synopsis

Don McGlashan wrote this rousing secular gospel number for a key scene in No. 2, Toa Fraser's cinematic tribute to the Auckland suburb of Mount Roskill. Beyond the screen it won an APRA Silver Scroll and spent 22 weeks in the charts. That sales success was helped in no small part by this Fraser-directed video which recreates the film's (eventually) joyous, party vibe. Cast and crew gather to watch the fruits of their labours and witness a backyard performance by Hollie Smith, McGlashan and the other members of the Mount Raskil Preservation Society.

Thanks Donna! It was our pleasure and privilege. We had a great summer in Mt. Roskill that year.

I love, love this song. And I loved the movie too. I was brought up in Mt Roskill so this movie is particularly significant, and the storyline is so apt. Thank you to all for producing such a wonderful Kiwi masterpiece.
