REVIEW FROM AUSTRALIAN OPTIONS Summer 2013/2014 #75
Reviewed by Jack Humphrys

This work came out just after Gary Shearston died in early July last year. It shows Shearston’s gift of writing and singing songs of significance, continued until the end.
The theme of ‘ love and other struggles’ shine through fine songs - the title track Reverently, About Just Loving You, To The Soul Of Life, Voices in the Wilderness and In the Casino of Life. Woman in the Moon is the most intriguing track with Waiting for the Light, a powerful antiwar anthem.
The Australian context, particularly that New England region in northern NSW, has always been there with Gary Shearston, wherever he has been in the world - he sings with joy the song, Old New England Range.
He is beautifully supported by his fellow musicians- multi instrumentalist Roger Ilott, vocalist Penny Davies, percussionist Jordan Davies-Ilott and others.
Along with songs from Shearston’s four other original albums released this century, a number could be musical accompaniments to the wise Hugh McKay’s insightful book The Good Life-What Makes a Life Worth Living? (Macmillan, 2013).
In the album notes, Roger Ilott, who co-produced the album with Gary Shearston, has the final word:
“Gary believed in love, social justice and peace. He believed the power of song could make the world a better place. I’ll miss him and his cheery, but sometimes world-weary ’Hello mate’- we’ll all miss him- but feel privileged to have been
able to help him get him so many of his musical thoughts, hopes and dreams out into the world.”
