Having become an influential folk/rock band after the releases of Solid Rock and Razor’s Edge, Shane Howard penned this protest song (under the name of F.River) against the proposed damming of the Franklin River for a hydro-electricity scheme. The anti-damming protests became so powerful that the Hawke Federal Government stepped in to stop the Tasmanian State parliament from going ahead with the plan. All this was organized by the Tasmanian Wilderness Society through the likes of Bob Brown and many others. The magnificent west coast of Tasmania is now protected as a world heritage area.
