Australian Folk Songs

Australian Folk Songs (1958)

Australian Folk Songs (Decca DL 8749, 1958) is an album by Burl Ives, one of the byproducts of his visit to Australia in 1952. Invited there by the Australia Broadcasting Commission, Ives met Reverend Dr. Percy Jones, a professor of music from Geelong, Victoria. The two men compiled a book of Australian folk songs, and Ives recorded an album of the songs, "collected and arranged" by Dr. Jones. Those songs were later released in the United States as Australian Folk Songs.

alfalfa - Norm the song is called Wake Nicodemus and is from the 1800`s. Very easy to find the lyrics on the internet. (5 years ago)
norm - I am looking for the words to one of his older songs out of the 50`s, that may be called `Nicodemus the slave`; Nicodemus the slave was of African birth and was bought for a bag full of gold . I`m hoping that someone has the words, thanks. (5 years ago)
Shayron Burton - Mr.Ives is such a wonderful memory for me.Just hearing his voice makes me feel such a peacefullness inside. I will forever love this dear old man as if he were my very own grandfather. I watch everything I can and love to listen to him sing. Just look at his sweet, kind, gentle face and I dare you to not just fall in love with him too. God rest his soul. I will keep him in my heart forever. (7 years ago)
