Gilbert O'Meally & Hall- was commissioned by the good folk of Coloundra NSW a town famous for its hot air balloons! But the story of the song is very real- it actually happened & I was fascinated by it! It was released first on album (Hotel the Album) all about Aussie Pubs & their stories! And this song was my contribution, Bit different to all the others ,but it won me the (Golden Gumleaf) award in Tamworth- for lyrics! It was beautifully Produced by Nash Chambers- and Rod McCormack featured on Banjo/Lap steel/Acoustic guitar!
