Sherbet was a band that shouldve conqured the world with their awesome pop songs !!!! With 2 previous albums that sank without notice & went straight to the cutout bins in the USA along with no U.S. label support from MCA Records,Sherbet moved to Los Angeles in 1978 to record their next album. Sherbet found a new label in the U.S., with Robert Stigwood's RSO Records & changed their sound to a more "Southern California Sound" along with RSO Records insisting on a name change (RSO felt Sherbet was too Teeny Bop) to "Highway" for the U.S. market (the Highway album still carried the name Sherbet for the rest of the world).

RSO put Highway on the road as the opening act for fellow RSO Records artist Andy Gibb for his North American tour in 1979. RSO Records put no support or promotion on Highway's album in 1979,instead,they focused their support on..The BeeGees,,Andy Gibb,Player,The Rockets etc... It's really a shame cause there isnt a weak song on the Highway 1 album !!! It's filled with hooks,especially on songs like....(Feels Like It's) Slippin Away,,Another Night On The Road,,Don't Wait Too Long,,You Made A Fool,,(If I)Breakdown. Renaissance Records did an excellent job with this release,but, I did notice that it's in the song order as the Australian release & that the song, "You Made A Fool" is the original version / mix & not the "Remix" version that appears on the U.S. release.

Renaissance did include as one of the bonus tracks,"Heart Get Ready" which was Highway's last single under the name, Highway,before they changed their name again in 1980 to, "The Sherbs. A song from Highway's 1979 sessions, "Angela" appears as a bonus track on "The Sherbs / The Skill" cd release on Renaissance Records. I remember seeing tons of the Highway 1 album in all the record stores in 1979,but,RSO just wasnt behind it. Highway 1 is one of my all time favorite albums & my favorite album of 1979. ---S.

Sherbet were Australia's most popular pop group of the 70s with 20 consecutive hit records and 17 album, accounting for 10 platinum and 14 gold disc awards. In 1969 the Sydney entertainment scene was almost totally geared towards satisfying the money-rich comfort-starved American Vietnam troops who came for official Rest And Recreation. Sydney's nightclubs gave them what they wanted - r&b, soul, funk, good-time rock - and these influences spilled over into the pop group Sherbet, formed without singer Daryl Braithwaite, but completed by his falsetto-capable vocals. They were the archetypical 70s girl fodder pop band - groomed hair, colorful satin stage outfits.

In July 1976 the group's eighth national top ten hit "Howzat" became their first number one, ending Abba's record breaking fourteen week at the top with "Fernando." Sherbet's album of the same name as the hit also made number one, also replacing Abba. The "Howzat" single was released in England where it made Top 10, was a hit in several countries in Europe and South East Asia, and also received extensive airplay across America. Sherbet now set their sights on conquering the rest of the world. In June 1978 they recorded their seventh studio album in Los Angeles. At the insistence of RSO Records Sherbet changed their name to Highway. They wanted to be seen as serious about their music and Sherbet was considered too frivolous and poppy a name. In Australia they only released one single as Highway, preferring to shorted their name to The Sherbs.

Trying to balance between winning America and keeping their Australian following happy the band lost its momentum, and in late 1983 they announced they were splitting up. At the height of their popularity singer Daryl Braithwaite had released several successful solo singles. Taking some time off to put the Sherbet years behind him, Braithwaite relaunched his solo career in 1988, with eight more hit singles and two big selling albums, Edge and Rise. Sherbet's main songwriter Garth Porter has become one of the cornerstones of the contemporary Australian country music scene, in particular as producer and occasional songwriting partner for Australia's "Garth Brooks", Lee Kernaghan. --- Ed Nimmervoll, Rovi
