Album Notes
Since meeting on their first day at Brighton High School, Melbourne, Australia in 1958,Keith and Mick's musical paths went separate ways for a few decades until coming together again in the early 90's.
Then in company with another long term cohort,they came up with three albums under the collective moniker of Glass,Hamilton,Young.
Following that they collaborated on three solo releases by Keith,and one by Mick.
They also found the time(and the lack of taste) to be responsible for "True Blue Aussie Christmas" with The Dimmer Twins.
Finally they have produced an album as a duo, the songs representing their current live performances.
Several of these fall into the loose category of "protest songs" indicating an increasing level of concern about the direction in which our world seems to be heading.
Joining the duo on various tracks are Melbourne based musicians Terry Dean (Dobro), Garry Carruthers (banjo), Paul Gadsby (bass) and Peter Luscombe (drums)
