Hurrah! A Mother’s Day album that doesn’t completely suck! Taking its name from the title of one of Paul Kelly’s must enduring songs, this collection unites 16 Australian singers who offer a combination of originals and covers that have been inspired by their dear mums. Even cuter, the artists — Bertie Blackman, Andy Bull and Katy Steele among them — contribute family snaps and stories in the album sleeve. A quality alternative to the typical Il Divo/ Ronan Keating/ Andre Rieu guff that gets churned out every Mother’s Day.
