    In 1988 much of Australia was celebrating the Bicentennial but a young Archie Roach was expressing in song what many who weren’t celebrating were feeling. For many indigenous people there was anger, despair, disadvantage, land rights battles and deaths in custody. Archie Roach dealt with this by writing songs about his own experiences and feelings – and then performing these songs to whom ever would listen. Then in early 1988 Paul Petran, the producer of ABC Radio’s ‘Music Deli’ program asked Archie if he would come into the studio to record a few songs to play on radio. Archie agreed. Twenty one years later Archie launches his new album “Music Deli Presents Archie Roach -1988” with a series of shows. This album is the second in a series of important artist releases from the live archives of Music Deli and captures some of the first ever recordings by a young Archie Roach, available for the first time on November 13th. The majority of the album recorded in 1988 captures Archie’s raw power and emotion in songs such as the moving “Took The Children Away”. Other highlights are “Weeping in the Forest” - recorded live at Melbourne Concert Hall in 1992 with Yothu Yindi and the “Christmas Eve” song with Paul Kelly - also recorded live in ABC studio in 1990. As a bonus at the end of the CD is an interview with Archie recorded on March 1st 1988, followed by a short interview recorded 20 years later in September 2008.
