Thread Name: Who's Eric Bogle?
Subject: RE: Who´s Eric Bogle?
I surely agree with the comment about "Guest"---he (Guest) probably is the lounge act he refers to. Bogle, to me, is the consumate performer and writer. Insights, persona on the stage, raconteour, you name it.

He can go from deep and thoughtful material to something that will have you split your sides laughing.    The story of the horses is so poigbant and he does explain that in the liner notes. Almost like hearing a drama of great sadness in under 5 minutes. Something like Woody Guthrie's synoposis of The Grapes of Wrath in Tom Joad.
