Bob Bolton Obit: Gary Shearston (1939-2013) (18) RE: Obit: Gary Shearston (1939-2013) 24 Jul 13


G'day Allen in Oz,

Presumably, that was Richard Brooks ... a skilled player of chromatic 'harmonica' who appears from around Gary's sixth LP" Garry Shearston Sings His Songs", ~ mid 1960s ... where Gary also plays harmonica on his "Duke's Song" track!

Richard Brooks was noted as a very skilled Chromatic mouthorgan player ... able to sight-read and play flawlessly from almost any music script.

(I must check back into the LP pile, at home, and see if that "Duke's Song" is from ... or about ... 'Duke' Tritton: a major 'Bush' (... Aussie folk ...) songs source, singer and - on occasions - writer.

Regards,

BobB
