A collection of songs by the late Aboriginal singer Dougie Young who began writing and performing around Wilcannia and western New South Wales in the 1950s and 60s.

His songs tell of the life of Aboriginal people in Wilcannia - and also explore Aboriginality in a way that was quite original for the time, touching on oppression, racism and land rights.

Important collection of original western Mew South Wales indigenous songs

Dougie Young wrote, played on guitar and sung his highly original songs which were inspired by his life experiences as an Aboriginal male from Wilcannia in outback western New South Wales in about the third quarter of the twentieth century. His songs were widely known and sung. His themes are sometimes earthy and humorous but always contain a characteristic element of humanity and a background of a fringe black-white culture. Recordings were made in the field in some instances which affects sound quality.
