At the official opening of the Kyana festival of Aboriginal arts, music and dance, on the Perth Esplanade in February 1993, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter perform the song 'Louis St John', which was later recorded for the album Looking for Butter Boy in 1997.

This is an exceptionally clear recording for an outdoor live performance. The vocal and solo guitar almost sparkle and the audio faithfully captures a song about a very tragic event.
