Post 485 Mother Goose - Don't Believe In Fairy tales LP

Not much to say about Mother Goose in this post that I haven’t already said in previous posts.  When returning to Australia in 1979, after almost twelve months in the United States they undertook their 'Catch Me If You Can Tour', and recorded the album, “Don't Believe In Fairy tales” (L 37147) for Mushroom. The LP was produced by Ralph Moss and their version of “Paint It Black” is one of the best I've heard in a long time. Folk lore has it that Mick Jagger has said that this is the second best version of ‘Paint It Black’ he has ever heard, so could Mick and I be wrong?  Also a “BIG” thank you to Woodynet with  help in fixing up the art work for this one.

Thanks for this Ozzie. I have been after this album for about 20 years. Saw the band during their 'Catch Me If You Can Tour' in the early 80's at Dural in Sydney. They performed the album from beginning to end. Their stage act was simply stunning.
