Australian-Charts-EP.19 1963 Pt.3
Play • 51 min

The Winter/Early Spring of 1963 is dominated by one sound; Bombora! The Atlantics' mega-hit dominates this quarter and indeed the rest of the year, it lasted a massive 26 weeks in the charts. Sadly as I publish this episode, I relate the sad news of the passing of Atlantics' drummer, Peter Hood on 22 September 2021. When you listen to Bombora, you can't miss the pounding drum beat that underpins the epic sound. Vale Peter Hood. There's a good deal of other instrumental magic in this episode, including Rob E.G.'s, 55 Days at Peking and The Denvermen's Avalon Stomp. The Bee Gees' 2nd 45, Timber, makes the chart as does The De Kroo Brothers' biggest hit, (And Her Name Is) Scarlet. And Frank Ifield's chart run continues with Waltzing Matilda! Frank's version really swings! Enjoy!
