Release history

This EP was released at the time Country Music in Australia was experiencing a surge in popularity. 'New Country' was a term coined to describe this movement, with Rich at the forefront of it. Respected Australian musician Charlie Owen performs Dobro and Lap Steel on this EP. Other guest musicians include Jen Anderson, Rusty Berther, Bruce Haymes and Michael Barclay. The EP was produced by Steve Connolly, who was a member of Paul Kelly's band. Rich's tune 'Beautiful, Talented and Dead' was written about the 1994 suicide of Kurt Cobain. This track would later be re-recorded and included on Rich's debut album. The image on the CD is a photograph of Rich's mother Noeline (who also had a career in Australian country music)- performing live in 1961.
