I am just a little surprised that there has been no mention of Audrey Auld on Mudcat. She is a source of some great songs such as "One Eye", "Hole in my Life", "Forty" and countless others. Surely, being from Tasmania is not held against her. Maybe it is "Bury Me at Walmart". Here is a Youtube performance of "Tasmania". Other performances there as well.

Audrey Auld - Tasmania

She lived here in Sonoma County (NorCal) for some years, and I got to see her perform a couple of times. Good writer and singer, and to see the great guitarist Nina Gerber play with her was a special treat.

"Last Seen In Gainesville" is one of my faves by AA. Interesting in that it's from a man's perspective.

I think her single released last year has put many fans off.
About as far removed from the beauty of "Tasmania" as you could get in a song. What was she thinking?????
A slightly less offensive version is on her album "Tonk".
Check out her Bandcamp page if you are curious.... (language warning).

Not sure that Audrey Auld is particularly well known here in the UK. I'd certainly never heard of her before, and I try to keep my ears open.

Had a listen to Tasmania. Liked that a lot.

I am however slightly bemused by what seems to be overly prudish reaction by Arkie and SqueezeMe to (and I assume SqueezeMe meant): Bury Me At Walmart.

I have to say, don't think it's a particularly good, but there's a long history of such double entendres in song, going from traditional things such as:

The Thrashing Machine

to Music Hall stuff such as George Formby's:

Little Stick Of Blackpool Rock

Harmless innuendo.

No - the other song the guys are referring to is "Rack Off".
Even so, it's not exactly offensive, just a bit immature (in both versions). That aside, Audrey's straight-ahead, authentic brand of country music is still worth checking out, if that's your bag.
There's a review of her album "Tonk" at

Thanks for the clarification, Morley Man.

Immature certainly, but I thought it quite an amusing self parody of being as Aussie. But that's just me...

There's another Audrey Auld song that may give some people pause, "Parasitic Publicist Blues", which has the lines,

You played me for my money,
Yeah you give Jews a bad name
I want my pound of flesh

I'm convinced it was not her intention to promote pernicious stereotypes, but I wish she hadn't written that.

I enjoyed her show the one time I saw her in concert, at a folk festival in Australia.

Ed, not personally offended or prudish about such lyrics; just saying that the "**** Off" song hasn't exactly endeared her to country music fans in Oz; a fairly conservative audience.

Regrettable imho that she has now become quite well known (at least in Australia) for all the wrong reasons.
