Denis Gibbons "Shearing Songs" 1962 EP

Gazza of Lithgow very kindly purchased this EP and forwarded it to me to rip a few months ago.  I was very happy to receive the EP thinking I might be able to get some cleaner version of identically named tracks on some of Gibbons LPs.  When I started working on it this week, I was very surprised to find that these are different versions which preceded those of the same name on subsequent LPs so this is a great find.  Many thanks Gazza.
Tracks are:
1. Flash Jack from Gundagai
2. Springtime it brings on the Shearing
3. Lime Juice Tub
4. Back Block Shearer (usually Backblock Shearer)
5. Another Fall of Rain

As expected there is a little distortion but a fairly good result from a 1962 EP.

  1. Nice one Paul,
    Excellent quality considering the date, and nice to hear different versions with good diction.

    There must be many of these EP's hiding in folks collections somewhere. When I am in Tasmania I usually spend a Sunday morning at Evandale Sunday Market, I am sure I missed some gems among the usual pop junk, must look next time I go.
