travelling to and from Berri over the weekend was a big ask for 2 small kids, but they were great, I've found a secret weapon to keep the amused.....John Williamson ! Hearing a 4 and almost 3 year old sing "Bill the Cat" is a classic...

You didn't tell me you liked John Williamson. We could have had a sing song on Sat. night.

You just can't beat John Williamson. He's a regular, if not a permanent fixture in my CD stacker. Keeps me amused whilst I am driving and singing along (or at least attempting to). I'm sure I provide other motorists hours of entertainment and amusement. Glad to hear that his music is able to span right across the generations.

Lyn,
I reckon I've got about 12 of JW's albums. The last one I bought was Gunyah and I got it at Weipa on our Cape York trip.....seemed kinda appropriate considering the lyrics of the first few songs. My boys like the last one on that album cos it's about 2 brothers who grow up fighting & stuff, but who would probably walk over hot coals for each other if the chips were down. LOL
He's done some great stuff over the years.
Cheers,
Roachie

Lyn,

JW is one of our favorites over here as well, we have about 10 of his CD's they are great to put on when we have some of the other Aussies over for a few cold ones.

About 20 years ago we managed a place up at Croppa Creek and were neighbors to John's parents who had a place there called "Back Spear" and met John a few times when he was just getting going.

I reckon I have close to 20 albums and a couple of DVD's (and the collection is growing always expanding). His latest album, Mates on the Road with Pixie Jenkins and Warren H. Williams is absolutely brilliant. I can recommend that one to any fans who haven't already purchased it yet.

Hi Sam,

will have to keep an eye out for that one, Pixie is a classic too, have seen him and JW live a couple of times and well worth the money too

Lyn,

There is also a DVD available of the Mates on the Road tour which I only found out about today. Another 'Must Have' for me. And I agree, Pixie is great value. I have one of his albums aswell. I'm hanging out for the next time they are in the area, which means I will have to wait until August.

I don't have any JW music or Slim Dusty tapes....in fact my old truck doesn't have a radio or tape/cd player............I just whistle away at non descript tunes with the window open and while the dust pours in...what a life :-)

I like all music but particularly Blues.
