The song is called South East Asia (First night) and is anothery from the session we did with Dan Luscombe at TFS in Fitzroy. It's a rocking guitar driven stomp with BVs courtesy of Ayleen O'Hanlon, Brooke Russell and Jemma Rowlands. On the b-side we have a duet between myself and Ayleen on the tracks Geisha Girl/Lost to a Geisha Girl. And the download section is a beaut this time around with an extra two tracks: Noel Coward's Bali (recitation by Mush Lawler - Pete's bro) and Shane Mcgowan's Sayonara (Ayleen on the lead vocals here). Also there's a nice big informative pdf with all the info from the sessions and some neat player profiles. In short folks it's a bumper PACKAGE that's yours whether you buy the vinyl or the download or just purchase it online.
