Vintage Archie Roach Shows From 1992 and 1993 Released

Vintage performances by Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter have been released as planned with approval from Archie’s family.

Archie passed away on Saturday July 30. The ‘Live at Key Largo ’92 and Darwin ‘93’ release had been planned for its 1 August release as the 26th edition of the Australian Road Crew Association (ARCA) Desk Tape Series.

ARCA created the Desk Tape Series to raise funds to provide financial, health, counselling and well-being services for roadies and crew in crisis.

Archie Roach performed the shows with his partner Ruby Hunter. Ruby passed away in 2010.

Ahead of this release Archie talked of the artist, audience relationship/ “It’s a two-way thing “The audience gives me so much back – it’s hard to explain,” he said.

“But that’s actually what I do this for … to get that interaction with the audience.”

Paul Kelly spoke of how Archie gave voice to social issues. “Everything we do is political. No one bears that out better than Archie,” Kelly said. “All his songs are love songs – love songs to country and clan – and at the same time they cry out for a better world.”

He added: “He refuses to despair. Although many of the stolen children never came back, and although many of the children of the stolen have never known the way, Archie still keeps singing them home.”

After hearing of Archie’s passing ARCA posted the following message:

“The Australian Road Crew Association (ARCA) expresses its deep sadness
on the passing of Australian legend and master singer- songwriter,
Archie Roach.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Archie’s family and his long-time
manager Jill Shelton.

Earlier this year, the great man generously agreed to support ARCA’s
fund-raising activities through the ‘Desk Tape Series’ by allowing his
live recordings from Key Largo in the United States in 1992, and Darwin
in 1993, to be released by ARCA to assist roadies in need.

Archie was so proud to hear the final tapes and see its packaging which
included many personal photos which he contributed to the project. ARCA
is very happy to see these recordings being released today on August
1st as our further tribute to his passing and his legacy”
