GREEN BLUES - sleeve notes: Flow- 1990 - This is a song about the direction of the human part of the planet. My Mother - 2002 - This song was written after a conversation I had during a training workshop with Michael White, a well-known Australian therapist and author (see Dulwich Centre Adelaide). Michael has always been about finding the good in any so called 'dysfunctional' family so that good can begin to build on good, rather than using language that totalises people and families in negative ways. Here I am sending my dear mother a message to honour her story. The Lift - 1981 - This is a strange long song I can't let go of. I used to sing it at folk clubs in the early 80's to a very mixed reception, well, maybe not so mixed! The Blessing - 2006 - This song is dedicated to Denis Kevans the Australian Poet Lorikeet who sadly passed away in 2005. I visited him days before he died and the song is about what happened. Mighty Machines - 1991 - written at the beginning of the first gulf war - just rolled off the tongue as I was sitting with my guitar on my back step in Annandale singing to my neighbours open backdoor as the first bombs started to fall. Seems strangely still relevant for some reason. Rainbow Warrior - 1985 - On the 10th of July 1985 the Rainbow Warrior, the flagship of Green peace, was bombed while in Auckland Harbour New Zealand. The ship had been sailing to areas of the South Pacific affected by French nuclear testing. As he went to retrieve his gear, a second explosion killed the ships photographer, Fernando Pereira. I wrote this song shortly after this event. I sang Rainbow Warrior and dedicated it to Denis Kevans on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday at Blackheath folk, he was wearing a rainbow coloured jumper on the night, as I recall. He encouraged me to sing. Kissin By the Fireside - 1974 - This song goes back to uni days when we went on a camping trip to Jerusalem Bay not far North of Sydney. For Me and For You - 1992, written to keep an awareness of political prisoners. Recorded 8/08 by Lee St studios, firstname.lastname@example.org in one afternoon - except For Me and For You recorded 5/09 - leest.
