Did not release Windchase, band was Windfall. Tourism 45 was for Central Coast, not Gold Coast.
Some more info at Jam Records (11).

Funky jazz rock on the small Jam label. In reality, Jam = private press, but for some reason in Australia, there are so very few records that actually don’t have any label. The closest we really get is the EMI custom presses (when someone wanted to make their own record and approached EMI to press it), and the Jam label.

This, however, is firmly in the earlier category. Reissued recently on CD, the album is a freaking killer fest of funky drums, warm rhodes and occasionally annoying singing. The best moments are instrumental though, and the pinnacle of the album has to be ‘Song of the sea’, with its gorgeous Rhodes riffs and nice little hidden drum-break. Damn hard to find too (
