Tex Morton - Australian Ballads LP
This is Robert William Lane aka Tex Morton who was born in Nelson, NZ and in the late 1930's emigrated to Australia. Tex was a pioneer in Australian country music and died in 1983. This is a little like Stompin' Tom in an abstract way, this album is basically just ballads. The Song Kevin Barrie has also been covered by Stompin Tom so I guess that's a little bit of a connection there. This is not for everyone and there's probably a lot of people wondering why the hell I would post this here, well all I have to say is I have a diverse interest in music, and I hope people give this a chance if it's not your cup of tea that's fine. This was released by Universal Record Club PTY LTD, Pyrmont, NSW in around 1965 or so.
