Deep in a Dream CD gets great reviews

We have been thrilled by the response to the CD, Deep in a Dream honouring Dave McComb, released late last year. The CD is available from our website, just go to the Store page, where you can also have a sneak listen to the tracks. In Australia, you can also buy from all good music stores. We are working on international distribution for our overseas fans, but you can always buy direct from us, or from iTunes.

Here’s what the press have been saying:

**** (Four Stars)
“A haunting reminder of a towering talent… a poet of Dylanesque proportions with a uniquely Australian outlook. A must for fans, an education for the uninitiated.”
Chris Murray, MAG 

“McComb’s songs swarm with life - delivered ferocious with emotion, written with a literary arc, in considered language, his rich songbook by turns harrowing, archly funny, deliciously black. It’s wonderful to hear McComb’s songs played live and brought to life on this album. There should probably be an annual David McComb celebration… let’s keep the fires burning .”
Lauren Zoric, Mess and Noise”

Deep In A Dream may not contain the most ‘obvious’ of McCombs’ impressive catalogue, but there is not one dud amongst them. In The Pines is a highlight… as is the (Blackeyed Susans) rendition of one of the final songs that McComb wrote - The Good Life Never Ends

“A lovely piece of serendipity… the live record sees The Blackeyed Susans provide stirring renditions of classics like In the Pines and Ocean of You, as well as the debut live performance of Blackeyed Susan, while Charles Jenkins’ take on Raining Pleasure and Diving Bell’s version of Tender is the Night prove highlights among many.”
