    Jimmy Barnes' life story is now a powerful film, and to celebrate Bloodlines are proud to announce 'Working Class Boy – The Soundtracks' Deluxe Edition.

    Jimmy Barnes: Working Class Boy joins Jimmy as he retraces his earliest steps through the hard streets of Glasgow. It walks with him as he revisits childhood ghosts in South Australia, reflecting on the domestic violence, poverty and alcoholism that would fuel his life. The film sets this raw, and sometimes darkly funny story against a backdrop of archival footage and interviews with family and friends.

    Jimmy's honesty and inimitable sense of humour create an emotional and compelling film of a damaged childhood, a broken family, a search for love and, finally, a genuine redemption.

    The documentary also features some captivating musical moments. Elegantly filmed, Jimmy performs both solo and with Cold Chisel. He duets with his children, Mahalia Barnes and David Campbell, plus his brother- in-law, Diesel. An unforgettable new collaboration with Richard Tognetti's Australian Chamber Orchestra is another highlight.

    This landmark feature documentary is based on Jimmy's acclaimed memoir, Working Class Boy. His self-penned book won the 2017 ABIA Award as Australia's 'Biography of the Year' and spent a staggering 16 weeks at #1. It has sold over 250,000 copies, making it one of the biggest autobiographies in our country's history.

    Jimmy's musical career is nothing short of remarkable: fifteen #1 albums in Australia – more than even The Beatles achieved; over 10,000 gigs across his lifetime; inducted into the ARIA Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame ..twice.

    But none of these achievements eclipse the power and bravery of Working Class Boy. In telling this bare and brilliant original story on film, he has shown that it's never too late to make new beginnings.

    Jimmy Barnes: Working Class Boy releases nationally in cinemas from Thursday, 23 August 2018 for a limited release through Universal Pictures.

    Presented in a beautifully embossed 6 panel wallet, it includes a full colour 12 page booklet plus extensive liner notes from Jimmy Barnes. This strictly limited release also carries 6 Collectable Photo Cards featuring still images from the documentary and photos taken at the State Theatre. And finally, the limited Deluxe Edition includes an additional soundscape recording, 'Duke's Waltz', which was written and recorded specifically for the Stories & Songs Tour.

    (All of the printed components feature recycled paper material, and the Deluxe Edition will be presented in a non-plastic, non-toxic, biodegradable and sustainably sourced cello bag)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Barnes beginnings I read the book and that was quite an eye opener, this album adds the soundtrack to the book. This is not a typical Jimmy Barnes rock album, it is more of a digging deep into the creation of the man. Definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Music & delivery great, signature... I pre ordered this for my mum as she absolutely adores Jimmy! It arrived in time for her birthday & she loves the music. I was disappointed that the signature was on a card not attached to the CD cover & there’s no where it fits. Also, signature is no more than a squiggle. I’m the end, she still loves it.
