Eric used to make regular visits to these shores, but he did, what he said, was his last tour, a couple of years ago; he performed regularly at Biddulph Folk Club as it was then - my local club.
I must admit, I heard of him through the Pogues' cover of "And the Band played Waltzing Matilda"; a superb cover and hopefully it earned him a few bob.

I heard the song on a compilation CD i got with a magazine a few years ago and to me it was the stand out song.

From watching him on youtube he seems quite a nice guy and it seems im too late to catch him live, but im planning a trip to Oz next year, so you never know, could hit lucky.

Just a shame every folk singer seems to hate the English :*:

One of the best things about being on this Forum is that you get to hear music like that - beautiful, beautiful songs

Eric Bogle is one of the greatest songwriters this country has produced (even if he's lived in Oz for the last 40 years). Scotlands Ewan Maccoll.

People have already mentioned "And the band played Waltzing Matilda" and "Green Fields of France", but there are a load of equally moving songs like "Leaving Nancy" - the story of his departure from Glasgow to Oz and his mothers (Nancys) reaction at the station.

Also "Now Im Easy" - the tale of an outback smallholder who loses his wife in childbirth and has a tough life. One of the saddest couplets in music is in this song...

"My daughter married young and made her own way
My sons lie burried on the Burma Railway"

But one song i'd recommend above all these is A Reason for it All inspired by....well listen to the intro from the man himself...
