Various Artists - Also Used and Recommeded By

An earlier compilation from RRR released in 1988 I've ripped from the
vinyl.This contains some wonderful Australian bands with the lions
share from Melbourne. Worth noting is Crown of thorns, which was
Chris Wilson's band.Chris has I think the best blues voice I've heard
to come out of this country and is one of the best harmonica players.
The Sparklers were one of the best bands to come out of Sydney in
the late 80's, a substantial pop band with an irrepressible sense of
melody.The band that Melanie Oxley got her start in.
Another highlight is the closing track Gondwanaland's Rainforest,
Ambient brilliance which is made by Charlie McMahon's
amazing didgeridoo.

File to download this one seems to be gone. Any chance of getting it up again?
Just discovered your blog and I'm totally blown away. Had a lot of these records but unfortunately had them nicked. Never thought I would hear a lot of them again.
Thank you very much.
