Note by Alistair Banfield: I think it is pretty well established that the Wattle, Topic and Stinson recordings were done at the same time in London and sold to the two other labels with licensing rights to issue them in the UK retained by Topic. Thus on the Outback Ballads LP it says “A Wattle Recording” because it had been sold to Wattle even though MacColl and Lloyd were working directly for Topic. It was a question of (very scarce) finance! So, any songs on a Topic or Stinson recording will be the same as the Wattle songs.

Tracks 1-3, 6, 11-12 and 14 were reissued in 1994 on the Larrikin CD The Old Bush Songs. In 2008, the whole album was included on the A.L. Lloyd anthology Ten Thousand Miles Away.
