Melissa Kenihan is an award winning audio engineer and she has produced this fantastic double CD from about 30 hours of recordings she made over many rides and visits with the Lovick family.
Glenda Lovick quote: "She has really captured the essence of the high country and has made a priceless record of some of the important events in the evolution of the Lovick family and our life in the high country. Some of it is funny, some of it is scary and all of it is downright entertaining. Some of Charlie's yarns are almost believable!"
'High Country Life' comes in a fantastic cover with a beautiful shot of Charlie on Denny on the front and some great pictures of the high country inside.

APRIL 30 2001
Is Tom Taking Frank To The Yanks ??
In a recent article in The Advertiser (April 30 2001) Susan Archdall discovered Tom plans to take his Sinatra tribute to North America later this year.
Tom would not be able to take the show there if it were not for the support of Sinatra's family. To quote Tom ``I sent a copy of the videotape to Tina Sinatra and the lawyer for the Sinatra family. I'm happy to say they like the show very much and they have given approval for the show to be produced overseas,'' says Burlinson. ``There are lots of shows who want to use the Sinatra name and image. They don't give it away for free. For them to say, `Yes, this is something we will give permission for' is certainly a head start. They're very careful about who is allowed to use the name and the image.''
He isn't sure how much the use of the Sinatra name overseas will cost him. It is one of the logistics he is tackling, along with US union laws which will decide how many Australian musicians and dancers he can take with him. Australian copyright laws and the approval of Sinatra's daughter Tina enable Burlinson to use the Sinatra name in Australia. He also sang the role of the young Sinatra in a telemovie made by Tina.
Best of luck Tom - I am sure it will be a huge success. And just a hint - I have good reason to believe the show would go down very well in Italy !!!!!
Tom and Mandy welcomed baby boy Guy into the world in March 2001. A brother for 2 year old Mia.
