John Farnham [Australian Artist] - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

John Farnham Discography

In a country of over 20 million people, John Farnham is the one Australian artist who stages arena-sized concerts whenever he tours to satisfy the demand. He is, without challenge, one of Australia's most successful solo artists to date, on-stage and on record. His Whispering Jack album was the first album to sell over a million copies in Australia alone.

In September 1967 at the age of 18, he was signed to a recording contract and in December of that year released the novelty single "Sadie the Cleaning Lady," which became the biggest-selling single in Australia at that time. As a song, the record's success almost defies logic. What fans were responding to was "Johnny" Farnham's bright boy-next-door personality. He was someone both teenage girls and their mothers could both like. Farnham was also a fine singer and survived "Sadie" to release a long string of pop hits between 1967 and 1973, including the local hit versions of Three Dog Night's "One," B.J. Thomas' "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" (number one), and David Cassidy's "Rock Me Baby." He also starred in the stage musicals Dick Whittington & His Cat, Charlie Girl, and Pippin. His schedule prevented Farnham trying his luck internationally or developing on record. Success continued on the basis of his talent his personality, but by the late to mid-'70s, his career was reduced to night club and cabaret performances trading on his past. Even his record company lost faith in him and dropped him.

John is a fantastic singer and wonderful person.

I always felt a bit alone in not liking his version of "Help" from 1980. It still worked as a comeback at the time though didn't it... Johnny now John and all grown up. Even then though, who knew at the time just how big he would go on to become?

Hello PB
I agree with you, and a lot of other people thought the same BUT, it surely turned out beautifully for John.

He is another great artist and another truly nice guy, a good family man and with heaps of love.
