Slim Dusty Songbook Vol 12
This volume of songs takes us back to the late 50's and into the early 60's, when Slim's popularity had soared after the release of "The Pub With No Beer" in 1957. It was a huge success here and overseas and Slim followed up, as was the fashion in those days, with an "Answer To The Pub With No Beer" and "Sequel To The Pub With No Beer", both of which are included here. Amongst the rest of the 50's and 60's songs is the hit "Duncan", which came out in 1980. Based on drinkers at the "Town and Country" Hotel in Petersham, Sydney, the popularity of "Duncan" was reminiscent of the success of "The Pub".
