All the great story songs of Australia on a double CD.

Includes 'Waltzing Matilda', 'Nine Miles From Gundagai', 'The Wild Colonial Boy' and 'Click Go the Shears' - a must for any tourist outlets - plus songs about rebellious shearers, dusty drovers, cranky bush cooks, crafty swagmen and rowdy cityslickers. Cultural historian, ABC Broadcaster and legendary performer, Warren Fahey, has delivered an entertaining and authoritative collection which includes a booklet with the history of the songs.

The song are performed with the accompaniment of the fiddle, banjo, piano, accordion bass, mandolin, musical saw and Warren's jaw harps and concertina.

Released for the summer BBQ season and Australia Day 2014.

Warren will be undertaking radio interviews across Australia to promote the importance of these old songs and the role they play as signposts to our unique Australian Identity.

Here is what Warren says of the compilation. "Here are most of the great old bush and Aussie folk songs - all under the one tent. These songs have travelled down many an outback track, and over many years. They found themselves in the repertoire of the bush singer and, occasionally, that of the bush-loving city-slicker. They represent the pioneering spirit that built Australia. They are not simply relics of the past and best seen as historical signposts to who we are as a people in the 21st century, for it is these very stories that Australians have carried in their swag to identify themselves as a unique people, a people born and bred in what we call the ‘bush’.

They sing of optimistic new settlers out to build a life in the scrub; adventurous gold prospectors determined to make a ‘pile’; boastful shearers and drovers justifiably proud of their contribution to our economic boom time in the 19th century; and bushrangers, boozers, squatters and bullockies. They tell of ‘wild colonials’ and the never-changing challenges faced by the bushman in the city, or the ‘big smoke’, as they were fond of calling it.

These songs all had some sort of currency in the bush. Some came directly from the memory of people born in the 19th century and recorded by folklorists, including myself, in the 20th century. Others came rolling down through the years, were continually changed as they travelled, and have entered our national folk song collection. A few can be traced to poets including two written by ‘Banjo’ Paterson, and one by Henry Lawson, which, somewhere along the line, inherited tunes. They all sit comfortably around the same campfire."
