Recently opened gourmet Charcuterie 'Big Bad Wolf' at 262 Wakefield Street, Wellington has celebrated its connection with Pixie Williams by offering the remastered collection for sale from its premises.
"Our building was Radio Corporation’s purpose built Columbus Recording Studio where the majority of Pixie’s songs were recorded under the TANZA label – and is where her most famous song ‘Blue Smoke’ was recorded. As the first record wholly written, recorded and produced in New Zealand back in 1948 – we are incredibly proud of the association. In fact, we believe the recording studio where Pixie would have stood is actually my office," said Julie Powell, owner of Big Bad Wolf.
"We knew the historical connection our building had with this recording, and adore everything about the remastered collection - from the songs themselves of course, to the beautiful story of their original making. And in a twist of fate, I was actually involved in helping Blue Smoke Records on the remastering project – so it was even more important to me that Big Bad Wolf was able to share the story with our customers, and offer Pixie’s CD for sale. We also have a framed copy of one of the original 'Blue Smoke' Shellac records which has been signed by Pixie which is very special for us to have.”
So for a food and music match made in ‘smokin’ heaven’ – pop into Big Bad Wolf and secure yourself the best of both. Guaranteed to please.
