Pack of Talent on Dollar Hunt

AUSTRALIA has been blessed with a flood of overseas talent this year… a deluge of artists and the money seeps away.

If there had been just a few top drawcards one might have believed that the artists toured for the love of it. But after ELO, Bob Dylan, Boz Scaggs, The Beach Boys, Chick Corea, James Brown, Leo Sayer, Billy Joel, Leo Kottke, Ry Cooder, Joan Armatrading, with Meat Loaf and The Byrds now playing and Chuck Berry and Weather Report on the near horizon, one gets a little cynical about their motives.

Few people see the ashes of total and utter chaos from which the phoenix that is a concert arises. On Sunday, 21st August I was privileged enough to witness this miracle. The concert was the Jansch / Martyn configuration with the local support of Dodsworth and Sullivan.

SO FAR SO GOOD, John Martyn, Island Records, distributed by Festival.
A RARE CONUNDRUM, Bert Jansch, Interfusion Records, distributed by Festival.
These two hardened folkies, if you haven't realised, will be performing at the Canberra Theatre on Monday night and if you appreciate the best folk music or any high-class performance then I suggest you go along.
