In 1993, Archie Roach and Jimmy Barnes recorded 'We Could Be Gone' for Barnes' seventh studio album Flesh and Wood. They also performed the song together in an acoustic show at Channel Seven's Sydney studios to support the album's release. 

Shot with the audience in the round to emphasise a more lo-fi performance, it's clear Archie and Jimmy are struggling to hear themselves sing and the sound mix is not at a standard we'd expect. Nonetheless, this recording does capture the creative partnership of two of Australia's most celebrated musicians.
