Subject: RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia
Sorry, only just got my 'puter back from the Docs (with a warning that it won't last too much longer :(
I will try to add some more suggestions too!
Crikey Sandra, that's funny about "Poison Train" - it was a firm favourite in SE Qld sessions when I arrived some 27 years ago and is still frequently heard. Good Song!
Stewie, re "On the Death of Harold Holt" : a good 18 months back I was preparing Lawls' TEFC bracket of Manifold songs, with pics, for upload to his YT channel ..... not quite sure why they haven't manifested there yet ..... LtU&E, I guess :(
I was always very fond of "Fannie Bay" [by D&A Tainsh] as sung by the late "Tropical Ear" in Darwin. Their version was quite unlike the (Dobe Newton's) Bushwackers version, more poignant and more singable. And not at all like the "Galway Bay" parody on John T's "Oz Folk Song a Day" webpages!!!
So I'll just have to add another to my upload list, along with the previously mentioned "Northern Gulf", sung by Smokey.
