The new expanded edition of ‘On The Air’ features 15 previously unreleased performances recorded live at Thumpin’ Tum (August 1970), the Mulwala Rock Isle Festival (April 1972) and Festival Hall (November 1972).

Gil Matthews has remastered the early recordings capturing Carson members Ian ‘Fingers’ Ferguson (bass, vocals), John Capek (electric piano), Broderick Smith (vocals, harp), Ian ‘Willie’ Winter (guitar); Barry ‘Big Goose’ Sullivan (bass), Gary Clarke (bass), Mal Logan (electric piano) and Mal Capewell (saxophone).

Aztec Records founder Gil Matthews says, “This double CD starts off with CARSON live at the Thumpin’ Tum 1970 with Ian Ferguson on vocals. Then continues on with other live performances from “Sebastians, Mulwala, Festival Hall, Melbourne town hall and the “on the air” full original LP performance recorded live at Sunbury”.

Contains a massive amount of extra and bonus tracks.
