Profile Sherbet (aka Highway or The Sherbs) are one of the most prominent and successful Australian rock bands of the 1970s. “Shaping Up” is a mini-LP by The Sherbs released in 1982 via Razzle, Festival label.  It was critically well received and spawned two minor hits in Australia, but the US issue missed the chart completely. The group mounted a farewell tour under the Sherbet banner before dissolving a year later. As for their song there’re no comment.

Pure melodic rock tunes with great rhythm, harmony backing vocals, catchy chorus, sparking keys, well produced and arranged. Definetely the opening song is a highlight for the catchy and memorable chorus. The band has the same rhythm in all of their songs from the start till the end, so you won’t disappointed at all……If you find it grab it……
