  • Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow

    Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow




    Kathryn Gossow is a masterful storyteller who displays great insight and sensitivity in her handling of difficult themes. The result, her debut novel Cassandra, is an extraordinary and engaging coming of age tale.


    On a remote farm in Queensland, Cassie Shultz feels useless. Her perfect brother Alex has an uncanny ability to predict the weather, and the fortunes of the entire family hinge upon his forecasts. However, her own gift for prophecy remains frustratingly...

  • Lovesick re-released!

    Lovesick re-released!

    My memoir, Lovesick, came out in 2011 to popular acclaim. I decided to re-release the book and give it a new lease of life after a friend and high school teacher told me he thought it should be much more widely read.

    When a living treasure like David Hockney visits our shores, it might be tempting to hold a blockbuster retrospective. Instead, the NGV, in collaboration with Hockney’s studio, has chosen to comprehensively explore Hockney’s works of the past decade.

    "The blues is born with you. When you born in this world, you were born with the blues. (Lightnin’ Hopkins, 1967)
    "
    Sam (Lightnin') Hopkins, one of the great country blues singers and perhaps the greatest single influence on rock guitar players." (New York Times Obituary, Feb 1, 1982 )
    "These are not necessarily the best known Lightnin' Hopkins tracks, but in many ways that makes this CD even more valuable."

  • A Sojourn to Seminyak: Part 2 - the best was yet to come

    A Sojourn to Seminyak: Part 2 - the best was yet to come

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first four days in Bali as we ate and drank ourselves silly, trying many of the great restaurants in the area and as we got two free cocktails every evening at our hotel - we worked our way through them determined to try as many as possible. Between all that and a late afternoon visit to Andy Bar on the beach, we thought that maybe this was as good as it could get.

    Wow, were we wrong!

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    "The reality of Plastic Ono Band is that it contains eleven of Lennon’s most accessible and gorgeous melodies and riffs." (Gerry Mullholand - BBC review 2010)
    "An album that will be as much analysed as Sgt. Pepper over the years." (Billboard - 1971)
    "
    It remains one of the most audacious, iconoclastic albums in all of rock and roll." (Guitar World 2016)
    "
    The album certainly shows that he had yet to work through many unresolved matters, and that he still had much anger in him. However he was a brilliant man and knew how to channel these elements in such a way to create some brilliant, memorable and haunting tracks." (This review)

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 197 - Sam and Dave: The Best Of

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 197 - Sam and Dave: The Best Of

    "Sam Moore and Dave Prater's string of soul and pop hits made them the '60s' most successful black vocal duo." (The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll (Simon & Schuster, 2001)
    "Sam & Dave created some of their century's most enduring music in the pop form." (Stylus Magazine January 2007)

    There can be no argument that as a duo, Sam and Dave introduced the previously successful sound of the black church music, so successfully to pop music." (This review)

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    "Her deep, almost-vibratoless contralto sounded rough and unsophisticated compared to other commercial blueswomen but she projected a great depth of feeling and was adored by audiences." (US Library of Congress
    "Ma Rainey was one of the first singers to popularize the style (the blues)." (Joe McGasko - Bio May 2015)
    "
    When we listen to Ma Rainey, the recordings are very crude, but even so the power and mesmerism of her voice shows that pure talent and commitment to an audience makes Ma Rainey stand out even more today.
