John Campbell Munro was born in Glasgow and “escaped” to Australia at the age of 18 years. Having had a flirtation with folk music in Scotland, John found the local folk haunts in Australia and was soon immersed in the music. He was a founder member of Country Express in 1969 and later Colcannon (Australia) in 1988, but he is probably best known as Eric Bogle’s “sidekick” for decades. John toured Australia and the World many times with Eric and toured widely with Colcannon, including the UK. John sadly died, far too young, in 2018 after a long battle with cancer. All the songs on this CD are written by John and recorded by Pete Titchener only a few months before John’s death.
Royalties from the sales of the album will go to St Vincent’s Private Hospital (Research Arm) in Australia via John’s wife Alana Cole. It is a pleasure and a privilege for Ian Green to release this album of a great singer-songwriter, musician and friend.

A definitive concert from 1982 - Dick Gaughan has been at the cutting edge of Scottish folk music for almost five decades. A guitarist, singer, songwriter, actor, musical director, arranger, record producer, engineer and goodness knows what else - he has been there and done it all. He is a brilliant singer with a passion in his wonderfully expressive voice which is allied to an amazing guitar technique which can leave you mesmerised.
The Harvard Tapes is breaking mail order records and the feedback from customers and the media is hugely complimentary. The album is also doing well through shops and Dick will earn greatly from all these sales. Greentrax again acknowledges Brian O’Donovan of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who recorded the 1982 concert and then freely allowed the recordings to be used for this release, thus helping Dick.
