A Hell of a Career

John Williamson is, without question, an Australian icon. His voice and sound are as recognisable and important to Australia as the Southern Cross is to the flag.

After forty-three years in the music industry, touring continuously for that period, John’s career is stronger than ever and he is still writing and recording new songs. But during this time he has shunned celebrity and resisted offers to take his music to the international stage, preferring to stay true to his passion: Australia.

"A Hell Of A Career" represents and celebrates that longevity. Featuring 45 songs over 2 CDs Including Old Man Emu, True Blue, Mallee Boy, Galleries of Pink Galahs, Raining on the Rock, Rip Rip Woodchip, Papa Whisky November, Three Sons, Salisbury Street, Flower on the Water and The Big Red it is a true statement of John Williamson’s love for Australia, its places and its people. It also includes a never-released before studio version of Island of Oceans plus live recordings of Hang My Hat In Queensland, Prairie Hotel Parachilna and Rescue Me all of which were recorded with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House.
