Another Day, Another Town
Slim Dusty is Australia's most loved and best-kown country music performer. He is also a bush legend and his famous song, "A Pub With No Beer", has made him one of the most celebrated fair dinkum Aussies.
Written by Slim Dusty and Joy McKean, Another Day, Another Town is a warm and honest view of their amazing life together. This new, revised edition celebrates the sixtieth anniversary of Slim Dusty's first recording with EMI. It brings readers up to date with Slim and Joy's careers, and the foreword by their daughter, singer-songwriter Anne Kirkpatrick, pays tribute to this couple who have entertained Australians for decades.
This is a story of their love for each other and their music, and of their determination to bring country music to the whole of Austalia.
'It seems I've done most things I wanted to do, but of all things, I think I most enjoy finding good songs and recording them. There are so many songs I want to record that I will be kept busy for as long as I can keep it up... It is the people you meet along the road of life who make the travelling easier. No wonder I loved it all.'–Slim Dusty
