  • Notes
    • Information on these recordings was sent me by Cam, a friend of "theballadeers".
    • I found a little more info, via John O'Brien's book, Festival Legends: Songs & Stories.
    • Apparently, New Decade & Spectrum were originally (briefly) released in Australia only.
    • Green and Gold is a combination of selected tracks from both.
