Travelling Highway Blues (Best of Carson) (RVCD-88)
Alongside contemporaries Chain, Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs, Daddy Cool, the La De Das, Coloured Balls, King Harvest, Spectrum and Healing Force, CARSON helped create a uniquely Australian musical identity. And, as part of the band’s push towards the roots of rock – the blues – Carson also helped establish the blueprint for the pub rock scene that was to follow.
In their time together, the members of Carson issued three singles, including the memorable national hit ‘Boogie (Part One)’, and two highly regarded and collectable albums (Blown and the live On The Air). Raven has selected the best tracks (including six cuts from Blown and three from the live at Sunbury 1973 set On The Air) for presentation on Travelling Highway Blues.
As a bonus, there’s the A-side of the incredibly rare, 1970 single by The Meating (‘Bad Luck Feeling’) which was a one-off collaboration between Greg Lawrie and blues master Matt Taylor. Travelling Highway Blues (The Best of Carson) is an important slice of Rock History, and will fill a gap in the collection of any self-respecting fan of 1970s Australian Music.
