Back in 1997 Archie released his third album, Looking For Butter Boy. It was recorded on his mother’s ancestral lands in Port Fairy in an old Bed and Breakfast converted into a recording studio. However a couple of years earlier Melbourne based producer, musician and composer, Jen Anderson was asked by Archie’s record company, Mushroom to produce a demo recording of his new songs. She assembled some of Melbourne’s finest musicians to Newmarket Studios in January 1995. Back at her home studio in Fitzroy she recorded the sublime backing vocals from Amy Saunders, Lou Bennett and Sally Dastey from the Tiddas and Helen Mountfort on cello. This demo recording of what was to be Archie’s third album never saw the light of day….until now. Called Dancing With My Spirit, the CD and LP are available, with all proceeds from sales going to the Archie Roach Foundation.
