Eric Bogle - The Source of Light cover image

Eric Bogle - The Source of Light

15 tracks: The Old Dog’s Song * The Armageddon Waltz * Embers * The Girl in The Photo * Song For Susan * The Source of Light * If She Ever Dreamed * A Cottage in The Country * The Flag * Catching The Wave * The Border * When The Last Tree Falls * Eric’s Never Written a Song About Me * Mind The Gap / A Dear John Letter * If I Should Wake.

Recorded in late 2021 in Australia, Eric Bogle surrounded himself in the studio with some amazing talent: Emma Luker (fiddle, cello, viola, harmony vocals) arranged vocals, wrote a tune in memory of the late John Munro and designed the artwork; Peter Titchener (guitar, vocals) contributed two songs, recorded and produced the album; Damien Steele Scott (acoustic guitar, bass); Jon Jones (percussion); Richard Cotes (accordion, keyboards); The Sherrahs (harmony vocals); Anthony Stewart (mandolin, electric guitar) and Anthony O’Neill (tenor banjo).

Songs written by Eric Bogle are: The Old Dog’s Song (a song for your wellbeing); The Armageddon Waltz (we’re all doomed - maybe?); Embers (memories mostly comfort or hurt); Song For Susan (written in memory of percussionist Jon Jones’ late partner); The Source of Light (countries torn apart by war); If She Ever Dreamed (Eric returns to sing of his mother Nancy); A Cottage In The Country (an idyllic little cottage in the country?); The Flag (like many of us Eric hates fascists!); Catching The Wave (about a well-known Australian figure on the folk scene); When The Last Tree Falls (we’re all doomed – Part Deux); A Dear John Letter (written for our dear mate - linked to Mind The Gap, a tune for John); and If I Should Wake (an a capella song - learn the words and sing, says Eric).

Eric is probably best known for his song And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, which was named in 2001 as one of the Australian Performing Rights Association’s Top 30 Australian songs of all time. In 1987 Eric was appointed a Member of The Order of Australia in recognition of his service to the performing arts as a songwriter and singer. He was also awarded a Peace Medal from the UN for his efforts to promote peace and social harmony through his music.
