eTrack Music by Maurice Jones, John Statham and Paul Marshall
There are six historic tracks by Timelapse. Tracks 1 and 2 are accordion duet, Maurice Jones and John Statham and these two pieces were performed by them at the 1980 Coupe Mondiale which was hosted in New Zealand by the NZAA.
Tracks 3 to 6 were recorded as an EP titled Timelapse in 1986. Timelapse Trio was Maurice Jones and John Statham plus Paul Marshal vocalist. This group featured at many South Pacific Accordion Championships Festivals and as the band for the Farewell Dine and Dance that was so enjoyed during those years. At the time of the EP release, it achieved quite a number of plays on the No. 1 breakfast station at that time, 1ZB.

About New Zealand Historical Recordings Series
The New Zealand Accordion Association Inc (NZAA) has a project in support of the Dargaville Museum 'Accordion Gems ...A Master Collection of Accordions through Time' ... This major accordion display was initiated by our NZAA Life Member Kevin Friedrich.
The NZAA project is to find all the old historic recordings of accordion performance. Many of these performances were recorded in high quality for National Broadcast Radio or on LP or EP's. The NZAA project is to remaster these historic recordings to modern digital files, able to be played as CD's.
Gary Daverne has already remastered some of them for the NZAA, to be ready in time for the NZAA 40th Anniversary Celebrations, 4th and 5th June 2011. Gary Daverne has been of invaluable assistance in this remastering of these old recordings and we thank him for his greatly appreciated help.
The results are very good quality, so much so, that the decision has been made to re-release these recordings on the MusicForAccordion.com website as well as to have them form part of the Dargaville Museum accordion history display.
