Singers-EP.8-Frankie Davidson Part 2
Play • 39 min

Episode 2 of the Frankie Davidson story, covers the years 1961-63. Have You Ever Been To See Kings Cross hits high in the charts. We also learn of the unusual intent of Frankie’s LP of the same title. There’s a W&G custom recording for Lawrence Dry Cleaners which grew a life of its own and, around mid-1963, Frankie heads to London to pursue his dream of taking Australian Music to the world. The UK adventure begins with a reworking of Have You Ever Been To See Kings Cross, with “London Town” substituted for Kings Cross in the title but Soho taking its place in the lyrics as the specific destination. And, of course, plenty more! Enjoy!
