    I caught a cold

    Intro: Roulette - Dom Mariani and the Majestic Kelp, Underwater Casino, 2003.

    Don’t Change - INXS, from the album Shabooh Shoobah, released in 1982. I read online that this is the single that turned INXS into a big deal on the world stage.

    Amphibious Skin - JJ McCann Transmission, a single from his 2023 album Hit With Love.

    Two songs from the Marcus Hook Roll Band, from the 1973 album Tales Of Old Grand-Daddy, which was George Young and Harry Vanda after the Easybeats broke up. Reportedly also included George’s borthers Malcolm and Angus, who at the time were putting together their own band, AC/DC.

    Moonshine Blues

    Silver Shoes

    Two songs from the Cruel Sea, their album The Honeymoon Is Over, from 1993, and the band is back together to promote the 30 years since they made it.

    Woman With Soul

    Better Than Love

    Love Comes Around - Mahalia Barnes singing with Lachlan Doley, on the mighty Hammond B-3 organ, and his band. Ms Barnes is the daughter of Jimmy Barnes. This song from 2021 via YouTube.

    Cheap Wine - Cold Chisel, from 1980, their album East, another great Don Walker Song.
