Listen to track sample

PHIL OLIVER

Please, Please Mr Packer

from the Cairns Country album.

“PLEASE,PLEASE MR.PACKER” is a comedy song written by Frank Markert .

The song is an entreaty by an indigenous musician to James Packer to allow him to be the opening, headline act at the Crown Casino Barangaroo.

The suggestion is that the singer’s repertoire of Slim Dusty favourites will guarantee to bring in the high rollers.

The vocalist is Cairns indigenous musician, Phil Oliver and the didgeridoo accompanist is his brother Mark. These boys have a local pub band ”Late Notice” made up of all family members. They were kind enough to guest on this one track from the album.
