HMV & Sunshine Years Vol 4

Volume 4 ST832

1964-1970. The Definitive Original Collection Vol 4 - ST832 After his extremely succesful time with Leedon Records Lonnie was enticed to go to HMV Records. His releases there were in both the Rockabilly and Country genre's and he wrote most of the songs himself.

The album, 'A Country Boy at Heart' proved the emphises HMV had on trying to open up the country areas to pop of the time. It was the first Australian Stereo album recorded at EMI 301 Studio when they were at their height.

His singles of that era are also included in this historic release.

In the late 1960's he recorded some singles in Sunshine records. These included a new very different version of 'Starlight Starbright' . He also wrote and recorded others such as 'The Traveller', 'Hello Love' and 'Sad Over Someone' (SOS) which was his last Aussie #1.

Lonnie, we just watched your DVD The Black & White Television years. What a great DVD we loved watching the old footage. You are a true icon of Australian rock n roll era. We love what you do -- ..saying on mass that it was the best concert they had ever been to. From my point of view I think it's a fair statement to say that Lonnie is the only artist to emerge from the Golden Era & remain a vital stand-out box office attraction -- it was an awesome show I went 2 times and took friends they enjoyed the concert also still singing as good as ever and just loved the format and stories about the songs and singers well done Lonnie and the Leemen rock on forever -- You were a great entertainer years ago and you are even better now -- I had some guests attending & like me, they were very impressed with Lonnie’s show. -- His courtesy, professionalism, song quality & great all round showmanship was outstanding -- Hes just a pure Rock n Roller with an unfaltering voice singing very naturally. Loved every minute of it
