Mark Seymour & The Undertow - Roll Back the Stone 1985-2016 [2017] (2 x CD's)

'Roll Back The Stone' was recorded over three nights in June 2016, in the Scrap Museum at Bakehouse studios Richmond, Victoria, Australia. There are twenty four songs here, gleaned from thirty years of writing. Chosen for their structure and storytelling power, these are the ones that have stood up, beginning in 1985 to the current album 'Mayday' which was released last year. These twenty four essentially comprise the current set list, although there are a further six or seven we simply couldn't cover on the night.. It is also a way to introduce the band, the 'Undertow' who have an uncanny knack of sounding big when there are only four on stage. Together we plot a course through the rooms and halls of Australia, juggling this ever expanding list... And by way of answering the question I'm sometimes asked when I'm waiting to pay for the petrol or standing at the check out. This live retrospective features solo highlights & Hunters & Collectors classics, recorded in front of an intimate crowd backed by his band The Undertow. Collects 24 songs including 'Throw Your Arms Around Me', 'Holy Grail', 'Say Goodbye' & 'Everything's On Fire'. (Amazon)

    1. Hi BigGray,
      I would have thought you would have this and shared it at some stage.
      It is a fantastic record. I have played it many times now.
      Isn't Kosciusko just a great track...
