Dusty Rankin A Portrait of Dusty Rankin
In 1970, Hadley was very keen to release more Dusty Rankin material, so portable recording equipment was taken to Dusty's home in Victoria, and there he recorded 24 songs with just his own dobro guitar accompaniment. The recordings were returned to Tamworth, where backing was added by Tamworth Sound musicians Norm Bodkin - pedal steel; Bob Clark - guitar and dobro; John Minson - harmonica; Bill Woolard - fiddle; Tom Roach and Geoff Cuneo - drums; and Alan Lisle, Gary Brown and Frank Jones - bass guitar. These recordings represent half that output and were released on Hadley in 1972. As an added bonus we’ve included 4 songs never issued on LP. There are also 4 songs on this collection that feature Dusty’s daughter Bernadette Hogan (*).
Dusty Rankin was honoured by elevation to the "Australasian Country Music Roll of Renown" in January 1996
