ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter, singer, guitarist and guitar maker Don Morrison has shared the stage with many of the biggest names in Australian music, like Midnight Oil, Hunters and Collectors, Billy Thorpe, Joe Camilleri, Australian Crawl, Men At Work, Stephen Cummings, Ross Wilson and a hundred more in more than thirty years in music game.
He has worked with Bo Diddly, Joe Cocker, Rodriguez and even Billy Ray Cyrus, he was brave enough to stand next to Shakin’ Stephens in a urinal and nearly killed by Willie Nelson in Austin, Texas.
He’s done gigs from Bridgetown to Byron Bay, from Sydney to San Antonio and released a dozen CDs of mostly original songs under his own name and that of his many bands such as The Bodgies, Raging Thirst, The Elmores, The Lonely Cosmonauts, Prawnhead and The Rank Outsiders.
He’s written all about it in a rollicking autobiography “This Could Be Big”
He might not be as young and pretty as he once was but he’s not done yet. Dubbed the Larrikin Troubadour Laureate of Adelaide, Don is playing, singing and writing songs better than ever. The sense of humour that has seen him through the hardest times in a notoriously brutal industry still shines through in his songs and performances. He makes his own world renown Donmo resonator guitars, writes his own songs and sings them himself.

Zoom Strange

If Donmo was American, Australia would know his greatness
Another world class album from a Master Craftsman about the Witchita Linesmen of somewhere that's not the US, which is almost as limiting a factor as the little samples above which don't give you the punchline to Don's stories, because this is music to listen to, not talk over. Buy the album with confidence and enjoy: whilst there's not a dud element to this work, I particularly enjoy the depths of Grand Junction Road, and the absolutely wonderful Note to Hillary's Kids. This is an excellent companion album to Waiting, and the rest of the Donmo / Cosmonauts / Prawnhead and beyond suite of superlative joy you'll be competing with me to find. Buying this album isn't so much supporting genuine talent and a real, living artist; it's a personal celebration of the idea of being alive.
