Australian-Charts-EP.16 1962 Pt.4
Play • 1 hr

The last quarter of 1962 is full of Australian artist chart successes. Yet again, Frank Ifield scores the highest position with Lovesick Blues reaching No.2. Johnny O'Keefe chimes in with a couple of entries including a double-sided hit written by New York songwriter Alice Evelyn. Some very strong instrumentals appear, including The Chessmen (without Johnny) and The Rebel (Johnny Yuma), and The Phantoms with Stampede which, 12 months later, would be referred to as "Surf Music". With the nuclear threat very prominent, Kevin Shegog comes to the rescue with "Fallout Shelter", although it's not the shelter that will save you but rather......take a listen and enjoy! And, Merry Christmas for 1962 with The Joy Boys' Xmas Guitar!
