Thread Name: Tune Req: Lyall Sayers - Albert Njamatjira
Subject: RE: Lyall Sayers - Albert Njamatjira
G'day again Paul,

I had a look through the index of Tradition, Magazine of The Folklore Society of Victoria and The Victorian Folk Music Club (minor correction!), 1963 - 1976 ... and they don't have this song.

In my vinyl collection I have a (mid-1970s?) Larrikin LP Victoria Street, Songs of Lyell Sayers, and it includes Lament for Namatjira. I have yet to connect up the LP deck I have bought to talk to my computer's soundcard ... I might get that sorted out tomorrow, then I can get the words - and, maybe, transcribe the tune.
