Slim Dusty [Aust] - RIP - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate


Born: June 13, 1927 - Died: September 19, 2003
Slim Dusty, AO MBE (born David Gordon Kirkpatrick; 13 June 1927 – 19 September 2003) was an Australian country music singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer. He was an Australian cultural icon and one of the country's most awarded stars, with a career spanning nearly seven decades and producing numerous recordings. He was known to record songs in the legacy of Australia, particularly of bush life and renowned Australian bush poets Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson that represented the lifestyle. The music genre was coined the "bush ballad", a style first made popular by Buddy Williams, the first artist to perform the genre in Australia, and also for his many trucking songs.

Slim Dusty "released more than a hundred albums, selling more than seven million records and earning over 70 gold and platinum album certifications". He was the first Australian to have a No. 1 international hit song, with a version of Gordon Parsons' "A Pub with No Beer".[1] He received an unequalled 45 Golden Guitar and an Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) award. He was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and Australian Roll of Renown. At the time of his death, at the age of 76, Dusty had been working on his 106th album for EMI Records. In 2007, his domestic record sales in Australia surpassed seven million. During his lifetime, Dusty was considered an Australian National Treasure. He performed "Waltzing Matilda", a very famous song in Australia, at the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Shemoosa said...

This is awsome! Thank you so much Ozzieguy. Slim Dusty is well & truly a part of Australia's history, and you are very generous to share his music with us. He was a unique Aussie, and there is so much of his music to enjoy. I am also wondering if you would be able to find some music from under-appreciated Aussie Singers Kevin Johnson & Ross Ryan. Many thanks, from Shemoosa.

Ozzieguy said...

Hello Shemoosa,
Slim was certainly a great performer and I had the honor of once being able to play and sing with him here in Perth.
And Shemoosa I do have some albums of Kevin and Ross among all my other huge piles of albums.

Thank you so much for all the Slim Dusty. He has always been there in my life somehow from the first time I heard "Pub With No Beer" way back in the Fifties
