Listen to track sample

Shaza Leigh

Nobody Wanted To Know

from the LBS Country Collection Volume 22 album.

It is always special when major forces come together! SHAZA LEIGH (Australia's First Lady of Song) concisely created NOBODY WANTED TO KNOW from an extensive poem by the late Tony Brookes (one of Slim’s legendary lyricists) passed on by custodian and mutual friend to all, GRAHAM PEARSON. It was then masterfully produced by the best of the best in the bush ballad world, LINDSAY BUTLER OAM (also Slim’s guitarist over 17 years).

SHAZA delivers the song with a depth of feeling and understanding that few younger counterparts could understand because she started her career back when these great writers and balladeers reigned in our industry. She knew them all personally and it is the maturity of Shaza today, the history, the respect for those men and compassion for their talent and beliefs, which makes this song significant.
