The ultimate illustrated commemoration of iconic Australian musicians, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter - including lyrics, stories, photographs and tributes.

A year after he entered the Dreamtime, Archie Roach's spirit continues to soar, much like the wedge-tailed eagle - his totem animal from his mother's ancestral lands. Archie's songs stand as anthems for the experience of dispossession, and have touched the lives of many with their empathetic message of shared humanity.

Songs from the Kitchen Table is a tribute to the power of Archie's voice, and to the career he built with his life partner and musical collaborator, Ruby Hunter. This beautiful, illustrated volume contains the lyrics to over 100 of their songs, carefully curated by Archie's manager and friend, Jill Shelton: from Archie's breathtaking early works 'Took the Children Away' and 'Charcoal Lane', to the timeless classics 'Tell Me Why' and Ruby's 'Down City Streets', to his final masterpiece 'One Song'. The songs are accompanied by stories about their composition; rare photographs; handwritten lyrics; album covers and artwork; and heartfelt tributes to Archie and Ruby from fans and fellow musicians.

With forewords by their long-time friends Paul Kelly and Emma Donovan, Songs from the Kitchen Table is a celebration of one of Australia's great creative partnerships, and a tribute to the ongoing power of plain-spoken truths.
