REVOLUTIONARY BLUES J. Camilleri (Mushroom Music) /N. Smith (Jesharo Music) billy told her lover she had to break away couldn’t stand to be there one more night or another day said if you’re comin with me you better decide real fast it’s dark on that horizon and this light ain’t gonna last well they made it to the border with no time left to lose when they crossed on over billy sang the revolutionary blues tommy woke up early from a wild and fitful sleep a nightmare still in his head an appointment to keep now someone’s gotta do it there’s no justice in this town he strolled on through the main street and burned the courthouse down a crowd gathered round asked him why he lit the fuse tommy stood there laughin and sang the revolutionary blues you may yearn to know your future but you don’t wanna pay the price so you turn your back on reason and listen to some fool’s advice go stumbling along that track into a bleak and foreign land ain’t ever gonna reach shangri-la unless you make a final stand love is kind and patient not jealous proud or rude it says so in the good book then I guess it must be true why do we go on hatin and livin in a world of fear boxed up for survival in a poisoned atmosphere history’s got its heroes they all had to choose and if I’m not mistaken they sang the revolutionary blues

about

“Saint Georges Road is sophisticated, soulful and superb, a crowning moment in a career that refuses to look back.” - Jeff Jenkins

The album represents Joe Camilleri's 50th career release and debuted as follows ARIA #1 Jazz & Blues | #4 Australian
#6 Physical CD | #14 Top 100 | #2 Australian Blues and Roots Airplay chart

Saint Georges Road is the the 19th studio album from The Black Sorrows and was released to the world on Sept. 10 through Ambition Records. As if to come full circle for this milestone release, Joe reunited with Grammy nominated Peter Solley - producer of Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons’ breakthrough album Screaming Targets (‘79) that featured Joe’s first Top 40 hits, Hit and Run and Shape I’m In.

Saint Georges Road showcases 11 original tracks written by Joe Camilleri and his long-time writing partner Nick Smith. Before they embarked on the project, Peter Solley asked Joe one question, “What kind of record do you want to make?” Joe replied, “A good one.” They have certainly achieved that judging by the reviews coming in.
