Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
I first heard Eric Bogle's songwriting abilities when June Tabor recorded "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" on her debut album. I checked out Eric and found that he had written many other wonderful songs. However, it has to be said that they all appeared on his first two albums, "Now I'm Easy" and "Scraps of Paper." He has done nothing of value from the 80s onwards. If you get those two albums, both recorded in the 70s, you will have all the songs mentioned in the other postings.
