I love listening to good Australian ‘outback’ country
singers and writers, which is exactly what Wally Sanderson is. His
‘story’ songs are terrific, and much like American traditional country
music from not so long ago, it’s exactly what country music was
originally all about.  Wally wrote no less than ten songs for this
project, and the first one out of the chute not only has a great ‘story’
it’s got a banjo player that makes the whole story believable.  We hear
the banjo again on “Aussie Spirit” and it sure sets the song off well. 
Paul Denman is responsible for much of the backing music and harmonies,
and Wally gives credit to Dave Drummond for help is making it all
possible.  I like Wally’s rendition of Hank’s song “Your Cheatin’ Heart”
mostly because Wally is putting his heart and soul into making this
song representative of what he really likes to sing.  Another good song
he wrote is “Good Times At The ‘Gool.”  This I believe might be a tavern
of sorts, but wow, all the things that happen in that little place that
holds a very fond memory in Wally’s mind.  Wally sings about horses,
like Gleam (a many ribboned first place horse), which was a fine
animal.  He also sings about Aldo, the young son of Wally, who rode this
horse with fine form. Terrific ‘true country’ CD, songs, stories,
adventures, a real look into ranch life in Australia.  This CD goes to
the Rural Roots Music Commission.  I hope they will give it a good
listen.  What I hear here is some terrific wholesome, adventuresome,
welcome ‘real’ country.
