Stan’s on track for CD success

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Erica Mur­ree

BIGGEN­DEN’S Stan Wheeler can’t read or write a word of mu­sic but that hasn’t stopped him re­leas­ing his sec­ond CD.

He en­joys pen­ning songs and does so ev­ery chance he can, which is usu­ally ev­ery morn­ing.

His most re­cently re­leased CD, I’d Ride Those Tracks Again, is get­ting a lot of air play, as far south as New SouthWales.

Mr Wheeler said a lady at one of the sta­tions re­ferred to him as “the boy from Biggen­den”. “She should look at my tem­ples,” he said. “At the record­ing it was just me and my gui­tar singing in the Thee­bine Junc­tion Stu­dio be­fore Graeme Jensen did the mu­si­cal back­ing and har­monies.

“I really think it came up good. I’m happy with it and that’swhat is im­por­tant,” MrWheeler said.

Of the 12 tracks on the CD, Mr Wheeler said his favourite was “Son of TheWar­rego”. And so far he had re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back. “The CD has a bit of ev­ery­thing, a lot of Slim Dusty-type of songs,” he said.

“It’s all my own work and any sim­i­lar­ity to any other work is pure co­in­ci­dence.

“Noth­ing is fac­tual in the songs – they are just out of my head.”

An­other CD of songs high­light­ing the lo­cal area in­cludes a trib­ute to Ja­cob Moreland.

“I have given a copy to his mum Sandy,” he said.

“What I would like to do now is take this CD into the stu­dio and im­prove on it.”
