After a long absence, Archie Roach returns with a sublime but powerful new album - Journey.
"I thought writing the song Took The Children Away was, in part, a way of telling people that taking children from their families was not necessarily the best or only so-called solution concerning the child or their family's well being. I was wrong.
We thought the Bringing Them Home report would see measures taken to ensure it should never happen again. We were wrong.
We thought the Deaths in Custody report would help prevent such things happening. We were wrong
The songs from Journey are a reaffirmation of identity, country, beliefs and spirit and how no one listened to our recommendations on stolen kids or people dying in jails.
So it continues . but we are still watching and definitely taking note."
Archie Roach. 2007
