  More info 

The hard edged country album from Keith Glass featuring contributions from The Amazing Rhythm Aces and Wylie & The Wild West Show along with leading Australian musicians. The song Smoke & Mirrors was a #1 country hit.

Smoke And Mirrors was 'Independent Album of The Year/Single of the Year/Heritage Song of The Year (for Larrikin Town) "ALBUM OF THE MONTH - Strong songs, some impeccable musicianship, and a solid Country feel make this album one that you can play again and again without stumbling over the standard musical cliches. It's an excellent return for Keith Glass to the solo stage." - Mike Smith, Capital News

During an action packed career, Keith survived the 60's (and lately found his first recordings prized collectors items now re-released on CD), became a music icon in hometown Melbourne, was responsible for instigating a goodly slice of 70's/80's Australian music history, prior to building a 100 song recorded catalogue initially spurred by US country chart success for a song in the 1980's leading to him being signed to the Virgin label late in the decade for two solo albums. These were followed by three albums as one third of Glass/Hamilton/Young.

He produced stuff for US artists Billy Joe Shaver, Jimmie Dale Gilmore & Butch Hancock in Australia then travelling to Los Angeles to mix US players from Dwight Yoakam's band with Keith Urban's trio for actor/singer Cameron Daddo's pop/country album. Further production duties were John Wibberley's critical rave 'Heart's On The Run' and Wayne Law's similarly afflicted debut 'Small Town Dreamer'.

 His own 'Smoke & Mirrors' made critics end of year lists in 1998 and garnered many nominations and more than a few awards, with the song 'Larrikin Town' becoming a staple of ABC Radio and featuring on three compilation albums. 1999's 'Southerly Buster' gained a 'Best Independent Release' for the duet with Lyndsay Hammond 'Standing In The Way Of Love' and continued the critical raves. Together with Mick Hamilton he won The Australian Heritage Commission's initial 'Songs Of Place' award in April 2000...
