Danny Spooner "Emerging Tradition" CD 2007

Well this one is very accurately sub-titled "(fairly) contemporary Australian songs". It is a marked contrast in every respect to the preceding  "When a man's in love". All very Australian and of known authorship and all of the genre that I think of as "contemporary folk". The tracks include ones penned by Eric Bogle, Bill Scott, Don Henderson, John Dengate and Judy Small. You can also find all the lyrics here on Garry Gillards site.

1. And when they dance
2. Weevils in the flour
3. The New Road
4, The song of the sheetmetal worker
5. Sixteen million people
6. Newell Highway
7. Mothers, daughters, wives
8. No man's land
9. The red fox
10. Now I'm easy
11. Thirty ton line
12. Cock of the North
13, Hey rain
14, Bring out the banners

Danny Spooner's widow has advised that plans are currently underway to expand the website to re-release Danny's music to raise funds for a memorial statue. Accordingly, the album is no longer available for download.
