Country Collection to showcase best songs
GREAT to see the latest LBS Country Collection CD up and running, and this is number 20.
We have seen so many names get a start with a track on a Country Collection, and regulars such as Shazza Leigh, Brian Letton, Tom Maxwell, and of course, Lindsay Butler himself, need no introduction.
There are 22 tracks on this one, with a new twist in that the last eight are, historical tracks which I assume are from studio archives.
The first fourteen tracks feature Leigh, Maxwell and Letton, with newer releases too numerous to mention individually, but I must admit Lindsay Butler's treatment of the old Buddy Williams song, Beneath The Queensland Moon, was a Standout.
As was Lindsay's duet with Peggy Gilchrist on Calling You, Leigh and Melissa Bajric, dueting on Norma O'Hara Murphy's Sydney, Or The Bush, and Letton's version of Johnny Cash's Forty Shades of Green.
In the historical section, it was wonderful to see Lindsay, remembering his old mate Barry Thornton by including their version of Smoky Mokes.
Ian Quinn's song Something Of a Privilege is done well by Leigh, and Bajric.
The LBS show will be in Bundaberg on November 8 at the CWA Hall in Quay St.
Two more dates to remember are November 20 when Letton will also be at the CWA Hall at 7.30pm, and October 4, when Evelyn Bury presents her annual Bundaberg special at CQ Leagues Club at 2pm.
Bookings for both shows are with Val on 4153 9370.
