In between his commitments to The Black Sorrows, Camilleri found time to issue the album Amazing Stories (December 1991) with his occasional country/R&B outfit The Revelators.
The Revelators comprised Camilleri, Burstin, Luscombe, Joe Black (keyboards, guitar; ex-Mondo Rock), with help from the Bull sisters, Anderson, Barker, Garrett Costigan (pedal steel) and Venetta Fields (vocals).
Amazing Stories produced two singles, What Does It Take (To Win You Love)? (November 1991) and Bob Dylan's Caribbean Wind (April 1992). Also included on the album was an elegant reworking of the Gram Parsons/Chris Etheridge tender-sad love song Hot Burrito #1.
For a short time, Amazing Stories and The Black Sorrows' Better Times were available as a Limited Edition two-for-one CD collector's pack.
Joe Camilleri and Nicky Bomba
Limestone is the first musical collaboration between longtime friends Joe Camilleri and Nicky Bomba. Featuring stunning landscapes of their native Malta in the artwork, Limestone is a celebration of their mutual love of reggae or "lovers rock", a mix of their favourite reggae tunes as well as a few originals. It's a postcard about the heart of the Mediterranean, which sounds like a long way from the Caribbean but still captures the feeling of life on a small island.
45 Years (Joe Camilleri)
Joe Camilleri is an icon of Australian music and without doubt one of Melbourne’s finest musical exports. He has paved the way for four generations of singers and songwriters, writing and recording an enormous catalogue of incredible music over an astonishing 45 years. From 1964 to 2009, Camilleri has gigged, written, toured, wailed and shaken it. From Altona to Cooktown, from Oslo to Cannes and all over his beloved hometown of Melbourne, The Pope of Elwood has shown fans and critics alike a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all. It is this love, this sense of adventure that keeps Camilleri going and the punters coming back for more.
