PETE MUR­RAY

Blue Sky Blue – The By­ron Ses­sions

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MUSIC - Cameron Adams

THIS shoe­less, camp­fire up­date of Mur­ray’s 2011 al­bum is su­pe­rior to the orig­i­nal. The loose vibe – with his mates from By­ron pop­ping round to re­work tunes – is ex­actly what you want from a Pete Mur­ray al­bum.

Bernard Fan­ning pipes up on Led, his former band­mate Dar­ren Mid­dle­ton adds trade­mark gui­tar work to H. O. L. L. A. N. D and Katie Noo­nan adds warmth to new duet Hold It All For Love. Last year’s sin­gle Free now features Busby Marou on vo­cals and vibes, and ren­ders the pre­vi­ous ver­sion re­dun­dant. The ti­tle track is bril­liantly re­born with spine- tin­gling vo­cals – and a rap – from Fan­tine and to prove By­ron lo­cals can break a sweat, Ash Grun­wald and the Liv­ing End’s Scott Owen blaze up Hur­ri­cane Coming.
