CANNOT BUY MY SOUL: THE SONGS OF KEV CARMODY (2007)

In 2006, Paul Kelly asked a number of Australian artists to record versions of songs by Kev Carmody, the legendary Indigenous Australian singer-songwriter. Steve Kilbey recorded his version of "Images of London" for this album, a song from the 1996 Carmody album Images and Illusions that Steve had produced. In January 2008, most of them, including Steve Kilbey and Kev Carmody himself, came together at the State Theatre in Sydney, Australia, for a two-night stage production of Cannot Buy My Soul. Other performers included Paul Kelly, Clare Bowditch, The Drones, The Herd, Missy Higgins, Dan Kelly, Last Kinection, Tex Perkins, The Pigram Brothers, Glenn Richards from Augie March, Sara Storer and Dan Sultan. A documentary of this concert, including rehearsal footage and interviews with the performers involved, was released on DVD in 2008. Visit the Kev Carmody web site at www.kevcarmody.com.au.
