Original music for people who like words. As one critic said 'The Goodwills are funny, clever and rude'.
The Last Waterhole
This 2015 album from The Goodwills (Bob and Laurel Wilson) brings to life a variety of songs from the pen of Bob Wilson. The styles are varied and so is the subject material, although much of it is imbued with Bob’s trademark drollery. There is a distinctly Australian feel about the album, with its stories about ore trains, feral cats and watching footie on a Sunday afternoon.
The CDm which received positive reviews and national radio play, has 14 tracks – beginning with the title track, an apocalyptic ballad about climate change, and then swings into a trad jazz style story about Buddy, a sweet old horse who got moved on when his paddock was claimed for housing.
