Australian-Charts-EP.22 1964 Pt.1A
Play • 33 min

Another split quarter to open 1964 because of the volume of Australian Music released. Sadly though, not many will reach the higher rungs of the charts as The Beatles' dominance starts to bite. The quarter opens with a rare instrumental track from The Hawking Brothers, Mexicali Rose, my copy of which is in less than pristine condition; "Sound" apologies! It's mostly the 'usual suspects' in Part 1A, with the addition of Digger Revell & The Denvermen's 'classic', My Little Rocker's Turned Surfie and the group which backed Little Pattie on her early recordings, The Statesmen with Beachcomber. Remember when it was Rockers -v- Surfies, then Rockers -v- Mods? And yet again it will be Frank Ifield with the highest charting hit. Enjoy the start of 1964!
