A FIVE-STAR PARADE! When Daddy Cool and RRR legend Gary Young heard Sarah Carroll's new album, Star Parade, he cried. That's a five-star review in anyone's language. Deserved, too, because Star Parade is a roots music tour de force. Sarah's superb songwriting swings from poignant to playful, with the result being soulful and sassy. ”

For her latest recording, Sarah Carroll has teamed up with guitarist and producer Leigh Ivin, son George Wilson and drummer Ronny Rindo under the moniker The Left Wing. Along with regular collaborators like Jackie Marshall, Gleny Rae and harmonica master Chris Wilson, Carroll applies her inimitable wit and vocal prowess to no less than 14 new compositions that range from the poignant to the droll. Carroll has a way of combining them both, like on 'Lived Your Life Twice', where she passes on parental wisdom, and 'Wives Know', in which she expounds the powers of feminine intuition, both with a twinkle in her eye. And then songs like 'St Kilda Skyline' and 'Blue Eyes Cause Me Pain' are beautiful, candid and affecting.”

If opera can be thought of as the musical version of a novel, then ballads are the short story. I have always admired the short story – neat, direct and self-contained. Alan Marshall vs Tolkein! Sarah Carroll is a great exponent of the ballad. The core of the Left Wing is Leigh Ivin (guitars and keys), George Wilson (bass and percussion) and Ronny Rindo (drums and percussion), with all of them contributing backing vocals. For me there are a number of special tracks on the new CD Star Parade. ‘Wives Know’ is a very forthright description of something that every husband has long suspected. I’ve already drawn the attention of a few car nut friends to ‘Heaven is my Holden with the Windows Down’. It brings back many 1960’s memories of the old EJ. The songs celebrate life and reminiscing, a lot of it to do with being on the road, a big part of a musician’s life. Sarah often includes a tongue in cheek track (I still haven’t gotten over ‘Vegetarian Truck Driving Man’) and ‘Star Parade’ has one. ‘Small Courtesy’ is the expression of all musicians’ angst, well all performers’ angst, when their performance is marred by carelessness in the stalls. 4 and a half stars!”
