Subject: RE: Australian-style harmonica
G'day all,

This was a post to Murray, on the Plectrum Banjo thread that seems, inexplicably, to have turned into something else. I might just whiz through this and correct all (some of?) those errors I only saw after "Submitting" ... as I said back there:
The moving finger writes and, having writ,
Reads not but witless ... strikes “Submit ...”
And not all my profanity (much less wit)
Can lure it back to cancel half a word: - Oh ...!


The Book is called Band in a Waistcoat Pocket and the Larrikin 2 CD set has the same name and matching artwork - they are designed as a set and were launched together. I don't have the 4 cassettes here but I'm fairly sure they have another, more generic name (like Australian Harmonica Players). I also seem to remember that they have a double credit - the recordings are on Ray's Bush Lark label and the whole package is retailed under Australian Harmonica History Association or similar.

I'll probably be calling in on Ray, at Blaxland, on my way up to Clarence, in the Blue Mountains, tomorrow and I will see what is still available and refresh my memory on details and prices. I am in the final throes of organising a free camping weekend, [23]/24/25 October for the Bush Music Club at a friend's bush property (up the hill, opposite the Zig Zag Railway).
