Original music for people who like words. As one critic said 'The Goodwills are funny, clever and rude'.
The Goodwills moved to Maleny in 2002 and got involved in community groups, including Tapestry choir, featured on their third CD, recorded live in their living room in 2006 in front of a capacity audience. Bob and Laurel invited Tapestry to accompany them on one song and to perform a couple of songs on their own. The album was recorded by Pix Vane Mason, who took over the spare bedroom for the afternoon and later spent countless hours with Bob editing the chatter between songs.
The album contains nine Bob Wilson originals, four of Bob and Laurel’s favourite covers and two songs from Tapestry, with Bob and Laurel putting on their choir hats! There is a light-hearted air about this album which captures the spontaneous humour of The Goodwills, although Bob says “we played everything too fast!” Only available as a CD.
