“It is the best of all trades, to make songs, and the second best to sing them.” Few do it better than Gary Shearston in a career spanning over five decades. His new double album is par excellence.
Writes Capital News’ Keith Glass; "Gary has here a document that should finally place him in the pantheon of our greatest song commentators."
Bruce Elder from the SMH says "Remarkable! 24 new songs set against a wonderfully rich backdrop of acoustic, slide and electric guitars. Shearston’s songwriting and music have not been blunted by age."
Finally Australian Options suggest "all that remains for this renowned and enduring songman is to take his work on a national tour again." We’re working on that bit – stay tuned!
