Jimmy Barnes: Flesh and Wood
Legendary Australian singer/rocker Jimmy Barnes, formerly the lead singer of Cold Chisel, asked the band Badloves to collaberate with him on his Australian top 5 double platinum album Flesh and Wood. In partnership they recorded a cover version of The Band's classic "The Weight" at Barnes' home studio in Bowral, just south of Sydney. "The Weight" was the first single lifted from the album and became a top 5 single hit on the Australian charts in 1993.
"The Weight" was also inluded on the European release of The Badloves' 1993 album Get on Board. Mushrom Records later included it on their 1999 Jimmy Barnes Australian compilation Hits on and on their two Badloves compilations Everybody Everywhere (MUSH26300.2 ,1997) and The Mushroom Tapes (MUSH332922, 2000).
