I've heard a lot about Australian traditional singer Duke Tritton but never heard him sing. Are there any recordings extant?

Roy,
There are just two tracks by him on a double CD that came out in 2004 from the National Museum of Australia. It was called "Sharing the Harvest" and was a compendium of Australian traditional singers recorded by John Meredith.
On CD2 Duke sings "Goorianawa" and "The Great Northern Line" alias (Cruise of the Bigler/ Dogger Bank/ Knickerbocker Line).
I know when I bought my copy I was surprised at how cheaply the Museum was selling them.
Trust you are in good form.
Regards,
John

Or try the National Library of Australia, I think that they have some of John Meredith's recordings.

KG'day RoyH,

Your best starting point might be:

Rob Willis
National Library of Australia
Oral History and Folklore Collections
http://www.nla.gov.au/what-we-collect/oral-history-and-folklore
0268512687 0427911962

Try the web address to review what the NLA / OH$FC have up front ... and you might then contact Rob ... who worked with John Meredith in his later collecting periods ... post 'Duke' Tritton ... but Rob is a major player in getting out imprtant songs and music to the wider 'folk' world!

Regards,

Bob

Roy - Sharing the Harvest was released by the National Library & is available from Trad & Now's on-line shop for $AUD20 + postage

Trad&Now is the on-line source for OZ folk music.

There is one track, My Shearing Days are Over, written and sung by Duke on the LP Australian Folk Festival. If you like to PM me an email address I'll send you an mp3 copy.

Many thanks OzCat pals. A lovely set of answers, really useful. I look forward to hearing Duke quite soon. By the way his book 'Time means Tucker' is a terrific read, also 'Duke of the Outback' by John Meredith.

I can really recommend the double CD set "Sharing the Harvest". In fact, there are three tracks by "Duke" Tritton (although "The Great Northern Line" is only a fragment). There are some wonderful singers on this set, some well-known, others less so. Perhaps the highlight, for me at any rate, are the thirteen tracks from Sally Sloane, a really splendid performer. One pity, though, there are no songs from Simon McDonald, who was another great Australian singer.
