Rod Stewart treated A Day On The Green fans in Queensland to his rarely played ‘Tom Traubert’s Blues’.

The Waits song from Tom’s 1976 album ‘Small Change’ incorporated the Australian folk song ‘Waltzing Matilda’ into the lyrics.

Stewart’s version appeared on his 1992 compilation ‘Lead Vocalist’. It was a no 6 hit in the UK and reached no 82 in Australia.

Only a year before Stewart covered Waits’ ‘Downtown Train’ on his ‘Vagabond Heart’ album.

Rod Stewart last performed ‘Tom Traubert’s Blues’ in London in 2015.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
