Notes from the former Ed website by Justin Barrington-Higgs:
"All in a good cause...
This album was a benefit to aid the cause of land conservation and
regeneration through the Earth Music Trust, and featured a very diverse
array of Australian artists interpreting their favourite tunes by other
Australian artists. Ed's majestic, passionate cover of The
buried treasure Sad Dark Eyes is a
definite standout, but the album is certainly worth a look for a few
other reasons as well.
Firstly, it features not one but two covers of Ed's songs; Died
version of the Laughing Clowns' classic "Eternally
faithful to the original version in sound and spirit and shows off
Ron Peno's haunted vocals to great effect. Those who saw head-Hunter
Mark Seymour's pummelling of the Saints'
Your Product (accompanied
by the Club Buggery Showband) on the Roy & HG show this year will
be relieved to know that his singing is a bit more in tune for the
rough and ready take recorded live in the studio by Hunters
and Collectors with typically fine work by their horn section.
Secondly, Ed's old sparring partner from the Saints, Chris
puts in an appearance too and turns in a quite creditable semi-acoustic
cover of a Tim Finn song.
Thirdly, the album aids a very good cause and is beautifully packaged.
Fourthly, Mondo Rock singer Ross Wilson attempting
a Tex Perkins and Spencer Jones song has to be heard to be believed!"
