Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Back to Broome (Ted Egan)
best version I've heard is that sung by the Redfern Shanty Club in a small bar with around 45 singers, most under 30, belting it out after learning the chorus, under the general instruction to newcomers If you don't know the words, SING LOUDER! One of the greybeards in the audience added an extra verse about his grandfather's butcher shop.
Redfern Shanty Club - check out the videos in case Broome has been included.
Redfern Shanty Club on reverbnation alas, they did not include Broome.
