Although he remained largely unknown in the Northern hemisphere, Johnny O'Keefe was Australia's first and biggest indigenous Rock & Roll star. Many of his records were covers of U. S. and U. K. hits, but he also penned several of his releases; his own best-known song, internationally, is 'Real Wild Child', a number which is nowadays rather more readily associated with Iggy Pop, via his million-selling, 1986 version. On his home turf, O'Keefe racked up more than thirty hit records between 1957 and his untimely death in 1978, following a heart attack at the age of only 43. This compilation presents the Very Best of Johnny's Rock & Roll years, between 1957-62, and features twenty-six Aussie hits, including six #1's;'She's My Baby', 'Own True Self', 'Don't You Know (Pretty Baby)', 'Come On And Take My Hand', 'I'm Counting On You' and 'Right Now!'
