I usually steer clear of choosing Australian records for
this ongoing series which highlights the most cringeworthy
records that the human race has ever been subjected to.
The reason for this is that it would be too damn easy. A
good 90% of Australian records would qualify and we
would all get fed up eventually. Therefore, you will guess
that for today's choice, which is from down under, to have
been chosen it must be particularly awful. And you would
Slim Dusty was Australia's greatest Country and Western
singer who, in his long career at the top, never once made
a record that a human being, without profound hearing

However, OCICBW... has always tried to reward the
foolhardy because they make life more interesting for

(unlikely), or your next of kin (very likely) if you manage
to get all the way through it. And may the usual gods have
the usual mercy on your weird and unusual soul.
