ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Multi-instrumentalist BOB HOWE and Victorian vocalist DONNA FISK have teamed together in a project that will salute the songwriting and recordings of fellow inductees in the 'Australian Country Music Hands of Fame'. The first release is a pair of digital singles; Donna sings 'Still In Love With You' and Bob performs 'The Preacher'.

The inspiration for this new version of THE PREACHER comes from a recording by legendary Australian guitarist DAVE BRIDGE (inducted in 1993). A founding member of the Joy Boys, Dave also had a string of solo instrumental hits. He recorded 'The Preacher' on the B-side of his 1963 single 'The Swan' and it features a distinctive bass part and minimalist approach. Bob has combined that with the influence of the original recording by the Horace Silver Quintet and taken the tune towards the style of Western Swing. Bob shows his multi-instrumental skills on 'The Preacher' by playing (in order) bass, brushes, acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica and electric guitar!
