Austalia’s Johnny Cash is back on our headlines, with throwbacks to some of the finest country music to ever come out of the Sweet Peach catalogue! Now available on Spotify and all other major online retailers and streaming services, Conway’s debut “WANTED MAN” is here for your golden age reminiscence!
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – we’re on a bit of a Lee Conway binge session lately, we have to confess. And really, why wouldn’t we be? Any fan of classic country music, ESPECIALLY Australian fans, will know his name. He’s one of the sweetest slices of the Sweet Peach catalogue, and with albums like “Wanted Man” it really ain’t hard to see why!
Straight from the 1980 LP “Big Iron”, Conway struck the music scene like a mysterious Arizona Ranger hot on the heels of Texas Red – except Fair Dinkum Aussie style! Now it’s available through Sweet Peach’s own compilation – rather than listen to the Big Iron EP, we now have a compilation that not only shows off Conway’s best but throws back to this crisp and nostalgic chapter in his career! Which is a better option overall in our opinion, to say the least! With so much of Sweet Peach’s catalogue going live, we’ve been quite excited, as have our partner company Blue Pie. We at Ordior in particular are excited about this because we get to work closely with some true Australian musical heritage! When distributing a catalogue online like this, certain issues can be encountered, such as lost or unclaimed royalties. This is where Ordior steps in. With our rights management and royalty claiming services, we’re here to make sure that the royalties are sent straight into the hands of those who deserve them – the talented creators who helped bring this amazing music to us, the public! We aim to protect the copyrights of our artists, and we strive to make sure every cent of royalty is accounted for – not just because it’s our job, but because historical music like this, we truly believe, deserves respect.
Back when Blue Pie put Conway’s bio up they touched briefly on “Wanted Man” too. And what a debut to springboard from! Conway’s is quite the legacy, and this album is yet another chapter of it that we love to revisit again and again. Throw it in the list – because Blue Pie has ALL his major work right here on Spotify to satisfy our marathons with ease! Wanted Man is now more than a single – it’s the namesake of an excellent album. But even still, it stands on its own merits when put into a best-of playlist too! That’s how you know you got a strong song, mate!
