Kevin Johnson [Aust] - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate


Australian singer/songwriter, born 1943 in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia.

Australian singer-songwriter Johnson is best remembered for his sole commercial hit, ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll (I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life)’. Originally recorded in 1973 for Mainstream Records in his native territory, it gradually picked up airplay until in 1975 it was covered by Mac Davis, who took it into the Billboard Top 20 in the US. In consequence Jonathan King leased Johnson’s original version to his own UK Records label and was rewarded with a Top 30 success (number 23). It proved to be the artist’s only success and has not subsequently been anthologised.

Thank you so much Ozzieguy, you have made my day! Up until today I couldn't find any Kevin Johnson music (with the exception of the 1979 Best of album). I still have a worn out vinyl copy of his 1974 Rock N' Roll etc. album, but what you have shared with us today is by far the best collection of Kevin's music I have ever come across. You are a champion bloke, and I wish you well in everything you do!

Thank you Shemoosa.
I have had the albums for several years now, my studio is loaded with LPs and CDs and it is nice to hear that people are enjoying my sharing of my many dollars of purchased music.
Best Wishes
