Hi, The song is "Snake Skin Lady" not "Strawberry Wine". Maybe you want to fix that on the CD notes.

hmmm .. should i bite?.. prolly should. . ...


@ anon- files check out o.k. this end.
Both "snake skin lady" and "strawberry wine" were performed at this gig. The original version of strawberry wine can be found streamed on the john steel singers myspace

Robert has produced their upcoming cd as chatted about in the file ive tagged '24 brisbane band j.s.s.'

He has performed this song several times to my knowledge. The "uplate" concert version can be found elsewhere on this blog. He also performed it a bushfire benefit gig at the tivoli in brisbane.



@bob - walking the streets of paris is a valid excuse for missing this gig... but only just! I personally would have post-poned the wedding/ honeymoon - but i guess thats why im still a grumpy old single nerd too attached to his puter.. ahhh my precious :)

( no offence Carmen ) :D

Wow, great show and great recording. Great to hear Robert Vickers again.

My favourite part could be when the usher asks for the video recording to stop. Wonderful work keeping the dat recorder hidden - we all thank you!

On the 17 august 2008, Robert and Andrew Stafford (author of Pig City)had an "In Conversation.." session at the state library of Queensland. I missed it but only the other day saw a link to its download.

It goes for 77mins and well worth a listen for the fans.

Nice work - I stuffed up my recording (should have replaced batteries before going) - but thought you might save my bacon... ;)
