'Working Class Boy - The Soundtracks' accompanies Jimmy Barnes' incredible forthcoming documentary. 

Following the success of his best-selling memoir Working Class Boy and the subsequent forthcoming documentary Jimmy Barnes: Working Class Boy, Jimmy Barnes will release the soundtracks for the film covering his incredible life story with the double album Working Class Boy - The Soundtracks

Album 1 is comprised of 12 tracks with an additional two instrumentals and 13 spoken word pieces. The recordings are taken from a set of live performances at State Theatre last year in which Barnes performed a number of collaborations with family members to breathe life into his personal story.
