"A mammoth undertaking by Peter Ellis and friends, the production and eventual release of three double sets of CDs of traditional Australian dance tunes. A total collection of about 150 tracks on 6CDs, performed on the first 2 sets by the Wedderburn Oldtimers' Orchestra, Gay Charmers, Dancing Pennies, and Emu Creek Bush Band (ECBB), on the 3rd set (vol.5&6) the ECBB provides all the music. The CD booklets to go with each set provide detailed information about each track, dance set and figures. Dance enthusiasts will understand the manifold variations and differences in dances like Quadrilles, Alberts, Lancers, Exions, Caledonians, Fitzroys, Waltzes, Gallops, etc, and the many variations and origins within these groups. The dances are performed with great consistency, perfect timing and a very authentic sound between the 4 bands. These three CD sets also come with a "Companion Call Book" for each set, giving a lot of background and history to the dances, many interesting photos and instructions on how to call all the dance sets. All in all, a fantastic effort in a very specialized, but important part of our folk traditions." Review by Dieter Bajzek
