Subject: RE: 'Solo Tuned' Harmonica Question
G'day again Vixen,

I had a 'phone chat to Ray Grieve, author of the book A Band in a Waistcoat Pocket, Currency Press, Sydney, 1995 - and compiler of the accompanying 2-CD set of the same name, Larriking Records, 1995 ... now Rouseabout Records (...?).

It seems I was a bit premature in saying they were out of print/pressing. Warren Fahey's new Rouseabout label has the CDs in his "Warren Fahey Presents Yesterday's Australia" series ... and Currency Press has kept the book in print. Ray also has a small number of copies of the 4-cassette collection, which adds his field-recording tracks of various old championship players doing their competition sets.

If you are interested in these ... the CDs can be bought from Trad&Now Folk Mag ... at (but overseas postage needs to be checked directly with the production manager at: The CDs are also available from the National Library of Australia: The book is presumably available from Currency Press ... but I have not been able to track down a web site or email for them!

Ray can offer a good local price on the cassettes plus the book ... but would have to work out the postage. His email is:
