Emerging from working-class Brisbane in the 1960s as the leader of the Bay City Union, one of Australia’s first real blues bands, Matt Taylor has served as an authentic chronicler of working-class Australia, of the opposition to the Vietnam War and of the communal lifestyles of the 1970s.
He has never been a mere imitator of the blues giants of North America. Instead, he
as fashioned an authentic Australian blues based in social critique and personal exploration. His contribution to Australian music over five decades has been unique and enduring.
This is his story as told to Phil Riseborough and Toby Burrows by Matt himself. Foreword by Michael Gudinski
Hardcover book is full colour throughout with tons of rare photos, posters etc.
