Notes & Reviews:
This new recording of songs made famous by the Australian singer Peter Dawson (1882-1961) stands alongside his own records, many of which are still available on compact disc. It is not an attempt to make a facsimile reproduction of his style, but it might be regarded as an indication of what he could have achieved if he had had the opportunity and the technology. We might think of the Dawson recordings as authentic period performances and this new recording as the modern instrument recording. There is room for both in the catalog.Notes & Reviews:
