Frank Ifield's Ultimate Collection Of 22 Classic Hits & Rarities For The 1st Time!

Frank Ifield started his career as a country singer in 1950 aged thirteen with an appearance on radio 2GB's "Australia's Amateur Hour" which led to stage shows with Tim McNamara and touring country NSW with Indian wrestling star "Big Chief Little Wolf" and then progressed to a recording contract with EMI aged 14.

At the end of the fifties, after releasing in excess of 40 records on the Regal Zonophone and then Columbia label and gaining wide experience of TV Shows from the very commencement of Australian television with his own show “Campfire Favourites, he returned to Britain in November 1959 to further his career with the burning desire to play the London Palladium.

After signing with Columbia Records in England he quickly gained credibility with his first release as a top 30 hit "Lucky Devil." BY 1962 he created history and International recognition with a country/pop style recording of "I Remember You" which became the first single to sell in excess of one million copies in the UK alone. The next two, million-selling singles ensured another accolade as the first artist in the UK to have three consecutive number ones.

From the sixties to the eighties with scores of hits including seven individual number ones, his career became firmly established globally where history claims him as the first Australian to make the American Charts, and the primary trailblazer to open up America to the British invasion of the 60's.
