liner notes from Diaphon's Reedy River Mudcat thread 1960's Australian Folk Albums (tho this album came out in the 50s)

it is a great album. Cec was a member of the Bushwhackers who performed in Reedy River, 63 years later he is singing in a choir, as is another performer from the chorus of the 1953 Sydney production of Reedy River.
Alex Hood is the last member of the Bushwhackers still performing at festivals.
