Well its my 100th post and I have a very special and rare compilation
album for you. This 1994 CD brings together an eclectic bunch of
Australian artists to be part of the Earth Music Trust, to raise funds
for Greening Australia.
All Artists donated their times and potential
royalties to the project and many of the song writers and publishers
as well. The Cd is a wonderful package which includes a booklet that
talks of the problems the project is addressing and is made from
recycled materials where possible.
The music is where it is however, we have many artists here that
I have covered on this blog. Dave Steel gets a band together and
covers the Inxs song "Don't Change", Ed Kuepper gives us
"Sad Dark Eyes", Chris Bailey is here, Shane Howard and
Archie Roach perform together, Died Pretty do Ed's masterpiece
"Eternally Yours" and The Falling Joys finish the album up.
There is also some fine acts I haven't got round to yet.
The Weddings song "Saints and Kings" is a real treat,
Kate Ceberano does the Hunters classic
"Throw Your Arms Around Me"
and The Hunters give us the Saints Classic
"Know Your Product"
Theres also songs by a number of other well known
artists, but check out the track list .
