GREG CHAMPION has A Whole Different Story to tell on his newest, 25th album.
And A Whole Different Story is as Country as any album Greg has made – since his first in 1990.
Along the way, he’s made Christmas albums with Colin Buchanan and around a dozen cricket and footy albums,
but A Whole Different Story is Greg at his Country best.
It’s a travelogue of Australian places – and people, harvested from twenty-five years of Champs’ farflung journeys in Oz.
Recorded in Brisbane with Michael Fix, continued in Melbourne, and finished in Sydney at Garth Porter’s studio
with top man Ted Howard, A Whole Different Story is as country as the title of track five:
Take Me Back to Innamincka.
The opening track Waukaringa is inspired by an abandoned crumbling stone pub on the unsealed track,
North of Yunta, near Broken Hill in South Australia – a dot on the map bearing the song’s name.
Track two takes a Murray River paddlesteamer as its backdrop, track four is set on a station out of Cloncurry,
track six takes us to Tassie, track eight is a Torres Strait Islands tale, track 9 hails from outback Queensland
and track ten returns us to the Murray River.
Released and launched at Gympie Muster, the video of track eleven, Mercy Lord Where Is The Melody,
is being shot on August 27 with master clip maker Duncan Toombs. A loud hard-rockin’ mischievous boogie song,
and a crack at over-Countriness, Mercy Lord Where Is The Melody will be the first single, released to radio in September.
