Recording information by --Baz--GOLD +9

This is probably the most poignant song that I've ever sung on here

This song was originally written to remember the 50,000 Australian soldiers who died in the Battle of Gallipoli against Turkish troops during World War I

many thanks if you listen in & especially to Gail for the upload

New song to me I think....but reading what you wrote up there...it does sound very poignant indeed....

Your voice is sounding absolutely PERFICK on it Baz.....you really give it that folksy feel ... and to me it really keeps in with the styling of the song...

Wonderful phrasing .... outstanding in every way...

OMGosh....those lyrics are hard-hitting and really pack a mahussive punch .... such a terrible picture they paint in my minds eye....

We live in the hope of peace throughout the world....but somehow....can't see it ever being so....because some countrys and regimes seem hellbent on fighting no matter what the cost to human life or what it does to this beautiful world of ours.....and those kind of thoughts could drive me insane if I sat n thought about them for too long.....

Anyway....there's no doubt about it....you sang this from deep within....gave it much heart n soul in your delivery....not everyone could put this one over like you just have sweetie.....brought a lump to my throat at the sheer graphical description in the lyrics....

Very honestly emoted ... a hard song to keep yourself together for ....it's a horror story for sure....but you did the song proud....

It takes a special kind of person to put their own lives at stake to keep us free and safe....we owe them so much..... without them....I dread to think what the world would be like....

Such a hard subject to sing about Baz......but as always ... you told it brilliantly....

LOVED your felt delivery....

No 3 on ur LIB

Solid, meaningful vocal right through...

HUGS N LOTSA LOVE ... PAULA XOXOXOXOXOX

Hi I think I was here first this morning. I listened well, as this so sad story unfolded. It was very beautifully told I have to say. You had me hanging onto your every word. I never ever heard this before. Complete first time listen. It had quite an effect. That is good though, we must never ever forget.

Nobody could tell it better.
