Recorded, Mixed & Mastered August 2008 - July 2009 by C. & J. Roweth with Collector.

This CD was recorded 17th-24th of August 2008 at Bill Browne’s place -  a church that has been converted into a house at Perthville, near Bathurst, NSW.  Additional recording, mixing and mastering were completed in Millthorpe.

"Collector" plays the music with gusto and sings the songs with feeling and understanding. Songs of the Bushranging days of Ben Hall, Jack Donoghue and others who, whatever their reasons for becoming outlaws might have been, were held in awe and respect, their passing regretted and their deeds romantically recorded by the old ballad singers of NSW and Victoria. 
Songs of mighty shearers who could knock off a century of sheep by 4:30, knock back a skinful of booze by midnight and have their 'cheques knocked down' by morning...!
Andy Irvine

 

“If you care about our disappearing Australian cultural expressions, especially our musical traditions, buy this album.”

Warren Fahey
