Stan’s on track for CD success
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.”
