Rick Price & Margaret Urlich - Where Is The Love (single)

My final selection for Australia Day 2010 is a duet from Rick Price and Margaret Urlich.

Rick Price has one of the most amazing voices in Australia. Add to that the wonderful NZ artist Margaret Urlich and you have one great combination for a single release.

Released on the Columbia label for Sony Music in Australia in 1993 and not really gaining any huge chart success, this will make an interesting addition to your collection.

Tracks on this single release are :-

Where Is The Love - Rick Price & Margaret Urlich

If You Were My Baby (Acoustic Version)- Rick Price
(from the Rick Price album, Heaven Knows / Rarities)

Love Train (Live Version) - Margaret Urlich
(from the Margaret Urlich album, Chameleon Dreams

This is an extremely RARE release.  Current value for this single second hand at Red Eye Records Sydney is  $120.

Artwork included / CD Rip / Bitrate 320k

The song was released in 2000 on the EMI label and was a huge novelty hit all round Australia.

Rai Thistlewayte - I Am You Are - We Are Australian

On this Australia Day, 2010, I have chosen to add a few releases that are in tune with our National Day.

The first one was a charity release by Telstra Australia with all proceeds going to the FarmHand Foundation. If you like this release then do them a favour and make a donation.

This song should be our National Anthem in this bloggers humble view.

It was written by Bruce Woodley, of The Seekers fame and Dobe Newton, singer and lagerphone player extraordinaire, from probably the best known of our "bush" bands.... The Bushwackers.

The singer was a young Rai Thistlewayte, now known as the lead singer of Sydney based band, Thirsty Merc.

I have to be honest and confess that I am not sure of the release date but think it was sometime around 2000.
