The Laggan - I am the common man
The Laggan had an unpretentious stage presence and the lineup of Arthur Johnstone, John McDermott and Tony and Billy Paton took no prisoners in their performance. And there's no hidden agenda on the album; these are songs which reflect the life - however short, however wretched - of the workers of the world, whether that world be centred round the Australian troops in Gallipoli, American trade unionists, Scottish weavers or the International Brigade in Spain.

Tracks: The Work O'The Weaver. Railwayman. The Old Man's Song. The Band Played Waltzing Matilda. I Am The Common Man. A Man's a Man. Men O'The North. The Workers' Song. Rosa Luxembourg. Joe Hill. Jarama and Bandiera Rosa.
