The Kimberleys offer a rich tapestry of musical styles and many of them are documented on this recording. There are 'contact' topics, such as air raid and soldiers marching, evident in several of the song styles. The use of the rasp as accompaniment is unique to this area.

Aboriginal Studies Press acknowledges the financial support from Dr Carolyn Lowry OAM and Mr Peter Lowry OAM in digitising some of the liner notes of Alice Moyle's recordings.
