Poems
by Henry Lawson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Lawson's poetic side, 21 July 2007
This review is from: Poems (Hardcover)
The standard of Lawson's poetry is reflected in the price the American's put on a used book. I was fortunate to find this edition in a Sydney book shop 2 years ago. Lawson, who died after a hard troubled life also wrote many stories (see Joe Wilson & his Mates).Both his prose and his poetry have an honest humanity about them, no flowery frills or fancy work,but have the ability to move you to tears, or laugh aloud.On his death he was given a state funeral

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Lawson, 21 July 2007
This review is from: The Joe Wilson Stories (Paperback)
Lawson is more commonly known as a poet who writes from experience of a hard & varied life.Both his verses ( I have the total collected works )and his stories are true to life ,often with sadnes, sometimes humour,but always with a heart.Joe Wilson is such a tale.I was fortunate to buy an ezcellent copy in Sydney, along with some other of his works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great voice, big heart, 19 July 2007
This review is from: The Long Way Around (Audio CD)
In one word, Brilliant, this man has a great voice and his song writing is for listening to,not leaping about dancing to, or talking over.If you like songs with meaning ,buy this you'll not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has he made a bad one ??, 17 July 2007
This review is from: Singing The Spirit Home (Audio CD)
I doubt it. I don't have this in particular,but I do have 55 of the 60 tracks on various other albums,both vynil and CD's.If you have a soul this man will move you to tears with some of his songs,others are humorous.I would probably give anything he made 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Froggy, 17 July 2007
If you like your songs to have more heart than noise,this is the way to find why Froggy has a universal following.His early work,but has some of his best loved songs on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Various artists not Les Barker, 17 July 2007
Many may rate this as 5 star, but I was personally disappointed.The main listing states Artist Les Barker, not Various, Les only does one track.True when finding the Album listing of the tracks artists names are given,but others like me may miss them.Sorry for being a moaner.
