Press Release

On May 13th, a new collection of Paul Kelly songs will be released.

This is not a new Paul Kelly album. Nor is it simply a compilation of previously existing tracks.

The Women At The Well features 16 tracks and 14 brilliant female vocalists, performing songs written by Paul Kelly, our finest songwriter.

Some of the songs come from existing recordings, but the majority of the tracks on the album are brand new recordings, with most specifically recorded for this project.

The songs range from treasured classics (Careless, Everything’s Turning To White) through to brand new songs, so recently penned they are practically still glistening (The Gift That Keeps On Giving). Some songs have appeared Paul Kelly albums. Many of them have never been recorded by Paul. Some were written for specific women, while others were just songs which blossomed under a female interpretation.

The Women At The Well. On sale May 13th.

“Late last year tapes started arriving sporadically in my letterbox. They all contained one song and each one was sung by a woman. Every song was familiar but also strangely not. Some were gentle, some were harsh, some were country, some funky. Some were surprising while others were what I always imagined they should be. They give me a thrill in a way none of my recordings do. And they make me proud to be associated with such wonderful, expressive singers. I write songs for women because they ask me to and because it’s fun. I don’t know what it’s like to be a woman but I know some of the things they say.” pk

Relevant liner notes:

  • Will You Miss Me When You’re Sober – Conway (EMI Songs)
  • Recorded in the studios of Triple M Perth
  • Engineered by Peter Raines
  • “We first noticed Deborah Conway as part of the group Do Re Mi – literally. Do Re Mi was four people, but Deborah Conway was the one you couldn’t help watching, the voice you couldn’t help remembering. Ultimately, stepping out on her own was the natural thing for Deborah to do.”

Good opinion has it that this CD cannot be bought – it was only available
in a competition run by Triple M

Thanks to Bryan Gaensler for this addition to the discography.

Don’t hold back that feeling, featuring Chris Wilson, Deborah Conway, Kate Ceberano, and Dave Steel

Track 3 – Liberty Blues – D.Bray/Arr A Pendlebury

Linear notes

I met Deborah down at the local pub – she was keeping her voice in singing covers Patsy Cline and kd Lang. Originally we were thinking of a Gram Parson’s song then she came to me with this song. The lyrics are actually about U2 – the fan adulation they inspire. Basically though I just love the way Deborah sings those words in the chorus “Hallelujah Blues” – Andrew Pendlebury
