I know this band comes up a lot between @Bosstralian and myself, but I think they deserve their own dedicated thread, with the hope that one or two others among us may decide a deep dive into their discography is one worth taking. I was turned on to Cold Chisel by an Aussie I was trading bootlegs with back in the early 2000s and I'm grateful for it. I would definitely call myself a hardcore fan, at least by American standards since they don't play here and their records go unnoticed. I've got their full discography, all of Jimmy Barnes' solo records and most of the Ian Moss and Don Walker albums. This is a band that is a national treasure in their homeland, but virtually unknown internationally. It's a damned shame, really.
This is the song that got me immediately interested in hearing more from them. One of the finest rock and roll Vietnam Veteran songs I've ever heard.
I freaking love Bow River.
For my money, one of the best broken heart ballads ever written. It reminds me of Bruce's best love songs; masculine but vulnerable, emotionally intelligent without being sappy or trite.
On of my favorites.
Goodbye (Astrid Goodbye)
Is this their greatest song? I don't know, but it makes me want to eat breakfast at Sweethearts.
