Australian-Charts-EP.11 1961 Pt.3
Play • 56 min

The Winter-Spring of 1961 is a time of some 'deep' cuts; deep in terms of the song's origin. We'll hear an instrumental version of a popular dance that apparently was a favourite of Abraham Lincoln! And, a hit for The Joy Boys that has its origins in Ragtime! We'll also attempt to unravel The Sapphires conundrum (at least four different groups with the same name!). We'll even hear an instrumental hit for a Melbourne group with a unique (for the time) structure; there was no bass guitarist. No problem though, because the future Musical Director for The Monkees, played the bassline on the bass strings of his guitar! Biggest hit wise, it's Johnny O'Keefe again with I'm Counting On You, backed with Right Now. And much, much more.......
