Travelling Highway Blues (Best of Carson)

2000 Compilation by Raven Records CD


In their time together, the members of Carson issued three singles, including the memorable national hit ‘Boogie (Part One)’, and two highly regarded and collectable albums (Blown and the live On The Air). Raven has selected the best tracks (including six cuts from Blown and three from the live at Sunbury 1973 set On The Air) for presentation on Travelling Highway Blues.

As a bonus, there’s the A-side of the incredibly rare, 1970 single by The Meating (‘Bad Luck Feeling’) which was a one-off collaboration between Greg Lawrie and blues master Matt Taylor. Travelling Highway Blues (The Best of Carson) is an important slice of Rock History, and will fill a gap in the collection of any self-respecting fan of 1970s Australian Music.
