Originally released at a concert playing along side Regurgitator and Midnight Oil for protesters of the Jabiluka Mine in 1998, ‘Bunna Lawrie’s Best Of Coloured Stone’ is a slice of Australian history.
With tracks spanning 20 years and from 7 albums, Lawrie himself curated this collection, including some never before released versions. The release includes early singles like ‘Black Boy’, which sold 120,000 copies, and ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ which won a song competition heralding the genesis of the band in 1977. The compilation also contains tracks such as ‘Human Love’, from the album of the same name, which won the first ever ARIA for Best Indigenous Album in 1986.
Liner notes explain the origins of songs, and included are some rare and historic photographs.
