The perfect book for Slim Dusty's legions of fans, whose numbers are still strong even years after his death.



Slim Dusty and Joy McKean were famous around Australia for their performances and for their love of the outback and its people. Slim and Joy were awarded a total of 44 Golden Guitars between them and Joy is respected by other performers both in and out of the country music scene, such as Kasey Chambers, Troy Cassar Daley and Paul Kelly.



Joy McKean wrote many of her husband Slim Dusty's most well-loved songs, such as 'Lights on the Hill' and 'The Biggest Disappointment'. She is a natural writer who has turned her talent to telling us the stories behind many of their most popular songs. Through the lyrics and stories she gives us an intimate insight into her life on the road with Slim.



This beautiful, fully illustrated paperback edition comprises a selection of song lyrics, Joy's stories - including three stories exclusive to this edition - and reminiscences about each song, photographs from the family collection and outstanding shots by acclaimed photographer John Elliott, who has been photographing Slim and Joy, their band and family for decades.
