Can you believe I found another “X” artist to write about?
Johanna Piggot, from Australia.Two XL Capris LP’s, two Scribble LP’s – is none of this fine artist’s work on CD???

So, looks like only about 48 tracks in total…and Johanna Piggot is the co-writer of “Rain”, the hit single by Dragon, the NZ band that re-located to Australia.I also remember her name on an Australian TV series, “Sweet and Sour” – I think I kept a soundtrack LP of that series (on ABC records).Looks like she’s gone into screenwriting (“The Girl Who Came Late” and “Broken English”, which is an NZ film – and I think I have the soundtrack CD of it!).Somewhat unbelievably, Piggot co-wrote the debut single by Keith Urban (!), “Only You” in 1990 – so we can add ‘professional songwriter’ to her resume).
I went to NZ seven times in the 1980’s, and Australia once (in ’87).I got the XL Capris records in NZ – and I bought them because the covers looked good.I got the Scribble LP’s in Australia, because I had liked the XL Capris LP’s – and because the Scribble LP’s looked good as well.
