zozimus Slim Dusty and Australian Folk Music (26) RE: Slim Dusty and Australian Folk Music 28 Jul 10

Hi Guest 2 letters up. I have searched under and have not found a link to Slim Dusty. Is that the correct link? I am anxious to try and get copies of him singing the songs/poems of Dan Sheahan. I know he recorded "The Valley Mail", "Pay Day at the Pub," and "When you're Short of a Smoke", all written by Dan. Dan, as you probably know, wrote the original poem "The Pub with No Beer". The actual pub/bar was the Day Dawn Hotel in Lannercost Street in Ingham. When Dan called in in the Summer of 1943 all the beer was sold out, due to a bunch of thirsty American servicemen being billeted there in their thousands after some Pacific Ocean engagements.
If you have any of these songs as MP3s, you might PM me or post a link.
                               Many thanks
