Another Mile, Another Minute is Geoff’s 14th solo effort and demonstrates notable growth in his songwriting. The genre bending album features horn players, backup singers and the best session and live players on offer in Australia. Long time Souldiggers Roger McLachlan and Mal Logan were part of the early days of the Little River Band. Guest players Chris Wilson, Lloyd Spiegel and Shannon Bourne are well known names in the roots world of Oz with their own well established careers.
Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna fame said of Achison, “Geoff is one of the finest blues guitarists that I know with a completely individual style. I have never seen anyone play quite like him.” Kaukonen is such a fan of Achison’s playing that he’s made him a charter guitar instructor at his celebrated Fur Peace Ranch in Ohio, teaching there for 17 years.
