The Bushwackers - Dance Album (1980)

Perhaps the longest running band in Australian history the 
Bushwackers have been delighting audiences with their Irish, 
country, rock folk since the early 1970's and I've been a 
fan since I was a teenager playing the back to back with 
with the Sex Pistols or the Saints.  
They are still very popular in folk circles and on the 
country music circuit.This 1980 album is devoted to Australian 
Irish dance music, its completely instrumental and a rollicking 
good time. In the 1980's the Bushwackers were at their peak 
playing sold out shows many of which were bush dances, 
these shows would get 4000 revellers to them with their 
dancing shoes on!
