CD D 155

BUDDY WILLIAMS Down The Old Bush Track. B.A.C.M. 155


Believed to be the first Aussie to record country in Australia - that was in 1938, three years after the debut of fellow antipodean, New Zealander Tex Morton, Williams had escaped from an unhappy foster home to go on the road, eking a living from laboring and busking. He loved the recordings of Jimmie Rodgers, his early model for his guitar style and yodeling. Here is a selection of 22 of his recordings, a wide range of styles including the Victorian era recitation "The face on the barroom floor" later recorded by Hank Snow.
