The Best Of All Trades
24 songs, 2CD set, slimline box, 8 page booklet.
Songs from the heart of
one of Australia's most honest observers of the human spirit... this
2-CD set brings together Gary's most recent songwriting (and a couple
of older songs revisited) with a skilfully pared-down sound featuring
the evocative and sympathetic guitar work of David Hume: "gives the
songs an engaging intimacy, reminiscent of his early recordings, as well as a fresh energy..." (Jim Low/Simply Australia).
