Our Wellington Music collection is currently unavailable on our catalogue due to the Central Library closure. We're working on options for making it available again and as soon as it is, we'll update this site.

We say:


Pauline Bramley was a pop vocalist from Wellington. She had a very short recording career, only releasing four singles, all on HMV. Her first two in 1962 were released as Pauline Bramley and the Blockbusters, and were “When My Dreamboat Comes Home”/”Build A Big Fence”, “Don’t Be Shy”/”By Hook Or By Crook”.

She teamed up with Jim McNaught for her third single in late 1962, early 1963, and released “Swinging On A Star”/”Old Smokey Locomotion”. Her last single in 1963 was “Rockin’ Robin”/”I Love My Baby”.

Grateful acknowledgement is made to Bruce Sergent for letting us use this material from his great discographical site New Zealand Music of the 60’s, 70’s and a bit of 80’s.
