Bourke To Beaconsfield: Greatest Hits

Release Date: 2006
15 years in the making, Bourke To Beaconsfield - Greatest Hits is a collection of the singles, Golden Guitar award winners and stand-outs compiled from Colin's five country albums - plus a couple of extras!

From Colin's award-winning debut, Galahs In The Gidgee, through nearly two decades of authentic, heartfelt, vivid songs, this is a collection for those who have been there all the way and those who are new to Colin's country career.

Bourke to Beaconsfield - Greatest Hits is part travelogue, part journal, part portrait. Songs like North Bourke Bridge and Edge of the Kimberley are weather-worn landmarks that capture and celebrate the expanse of the outback. She Waits and A Drover's Wife are skillfully crafted vignettes set amidst the corrugated iron main street verandahs of a small bush town. House No163 has the breadth of high country while resonating with an intimate, tender story of enduring sadness. These are songs that go wide and go deep - songs that represent the career highlights from one of Australia's finest songwriters.

The CD includes two new studio recordings of songs that carved a unique place in recent history - Beaconsfield (about the dramatic Tasmanian mine rescue) and the Steve Irwin tribute, Goodbye Crocodile Hunter. Both tunes captured a spirit that resonated across Australia and across the world. It's proof that when it comes to great songs, there's still plenty to look forward to from Colin.
