Subject: RE: One of Jake Thakray's best
About 20 years ago I was lucky enough to find a copy of Jake's Progress - Rollicking, Frolicking, Uproarious Verse in a small second hand shop in the tiny town of Gulgong in western NSW, Australia. I paid 50 cents for it I think. It was published in 1977 and contains the words to about 50 of his songs with excellent cartoons by Bill Tidy as well. I also have many of his songs on CD and tape and, as mentioned there are some wonderful items on Youtube. I used to contribute to a Jake Thackray website too and am sure there is plenty of stuff there for those who want to find out more. Jake was one of the best and I have been a fan since I first saw him on TV when I was a teenager - many, many years ago.
