Like all the luminaries he’s been compared to, Kelly is more than his hits.
He keeps releasing albums, continues to tour, and still tells Australians about their own country with humility and poignance. Paul Kelly remains – after 30-odd years at the forefront of music - Australia’s most treasured songwriter and performer. With sales into the millions, his influence is felt beyond music into areas of social justice, politics and other spheres interwoven into Australian culture.
This DVD celebrates Paul Kelly’s massive catalogue in video form; songs that have become unanimous unofficial national anthems.
Songs like To Her Door, Bradman and Dumb Things are deserving classics; just some of the many reasons Paul Kelly is mentioned in the same breath as people like Bruce Springsteen, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan.
This collection compiles all these anthems in video clip format and sits them besides lesser-known songs and rarities, (like the Rockwiz PJ Harvey cover he did with Katy Steele) over this whopping 37-song collection.
