Launched to much excitement on Gurindji Freedom Day at Wave Hill in 1998, ‘Vision’ was Teenage Band’s first release on Compact Disc.   With songs both in Walpiri and English, and produced by former Village People drummer Allen Murphy, the album piqued national interest.

The album was toured throughout the Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia on the first of the ‘Bush Tours’.  The tours involved music industry training as well as professional gigs.

Stand out tracks include the unaccompanied harmonies of ‘Please Come Home’, the high-spirited dance track ‘Nguru’ and the anti drink-drive anthem ‘Wiyappa Wanti Jalu’.

Vision was nominated for an ARIA in 1999, in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category.
