By 1973 when this recording was made at Armstrong Studios in South Melbourne, the line up was Dave Isom, Jan Wositzky, Bert Kahanoff, Mick Slocum and Davey Kidd – with guest player Chris Wendt playing 5 string banjo on one track. This is the first recording by The Original Bushwackers and Bullockies Bush Band, and precedes the band’s first commercial LP, The Shearer’s Dream (Picture Records, 1974)
Dave played with the early Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band and later founded the Original Bushwackers and Bullockies Bush Band.
After The Bushwackers Dave co-founded The Sundowners Band.
He has also circumnavigated the globe as a sailor and his other album, Sea Songs, is a collection of his favourites borne from his lifelong love of the ocean.
