This album was an English issue in 1970. I am unaware as to whether it was ever sold in Australia.
Martyn Wyndham-Read resided in Australia between 1960 and 1967 during which period he became involved in Australian bush music.He has visited Australia several times since then including last month. He is also a performer of folk songs of the British Isles and has put out many albums frequently including Australian folk songs. A great performer who only seems to improve with age. You can find details about him on Wikipedia and his discography on Discogs and other sources.
The title is a bit of a misnomer as Ben Hall and his gang get more play time so it is mainly about two lots of bushrangers with the other tracks being songs about convicts.

It is a really mixed offering with psychedelic folk, bluegrass, an Irish traditional, a Spanish language protest song of the 1960s (shades of "Quantanamera"), a blues number, and a few country/folk contemporary numbers.
Many of these artists have featured for other albums on this blog, most notably, Marian Henderson, Declan Affley, and John Currie. All tracks are studio performances.
This is another of the albums ripped by the Victorian Bush Folkie and edited by me. There were a lot of clicks on this LP but most have been eliminated and it is now of good listening quality.
