Australia My Country a new CD from Martin Erdman.

“20 songs about Australia by Australians”

Former 33 year resident of Scotland Island, has returned to his love of producing records with this brand new CD featuring not only some famous Aussie stars but also recordings by a number of well known Scotland Islanders.

Graeme Richmond steps out of his role at the Fire Station to sing Click Go The Shears, Elizabeth Brand performs her very funny Scotland Island Blues,  and former resident Jim Hinckley warns of dangers in the song Bushfire. Other Island resident musicians include John Marshall, Basil Daher, Robert Dale and Matt Trapnell,

The first track on the CD is an amazing song combining a 50-year-old recording of the voice of the late Pittwater resident Dorothea Mackellar reading her poem ‘My Country’. The difference between this version and others is that Martin has combined her voice with music and song written and recorded just last month by Harry Young. The result may bring a tear to your eye as you sing along!

Add to the above list of ‘off shore stars’ -  songs about Australia by Rolf Harris, John Waters, Frank Ifield, Geoff Mack, Jimmy Little, Ian ‘Macca’ McNamara, plus Waltzing Matilda sung in Kriol by Aboriginal singer Ali Mills (which is already receiving airplay), and you have one heck of an album.

You may purchase the CD direct from Martin Erdman at www.ozrecords.com.au or from Sydney Hi Fi in Mona Vale.
