Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classically Australian Fable and Image were two of Australia's most important indy labels ever and this CD is an indespensible snap shot of Aussie music in the 70's. Linda George's "Our Day Will Come" finally gets a CD release and Cash Backman's "My Girl Bill" is almost impossible to find, and the remastering is amazing "Wind And Rain", "Carroll County Accident" and "Snowbird" have never sounded this good. People need to get behind this release as Fable/Image has so much great music to offer but it'll never see the light of day without the public support. Highly recommend and don't forget to tell a friend.
