Legend, doyen, guru, and authority are just a few of the titles Roy Colbert has been called, after hearing and seeing it all … and living to write the tale.

Colbert was in the eye of the storm that was the Dunedin Sound, being a conduit between the artist and the audience through his legendary second hand record store, Records Records. This, coupled with his career covering local, national, and often overseas musicians has seen him gain the reputation as the Godfather of the Dunedin Sound, though he disagrees with this title.
