Cat. No. 1943: DIGGER REVELL AND THE DENVERMEN ~ DIGGER REVELL AND THE DENVERMEN. CANETOAD CD-040.

$22.73 inc GST ($17.30 )

DIGGER REVELL FIRST APPEARED ON THE AUSTRALIAN ROCK’N’ROLL SCENE IN 1958. IN 1959 HE FORMED THE BAND “THE LONELY ONES” THAT LATER FOUND FAME AS THE DENVERMEN BECOMING ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S TOP INSTRUMENTAL BANDS BASED IN SYDNEY. THEIR SECOND INSTRUMENTAL RELEASE, "SURFSIDE" / "LISA MAREE", REACHED THE NO. 1 SPOT ON THE NATIONAL CHARTS. THEIR THIRD SINGLE FEATURED A VOCAL CUT, "I’M BUILDING CASTLES IN THE AIR", AS THE TOP SIDE FEATURING THE GROUP’S FRONT MAN, DIGGER REVELL. THE RECORD REACHED THE TOP TEN OF THE NATIONAL CHARTS TOWARDS THE END OF 1962. FROM THEN ON, IN MUCH THE SAME WAY AS CLIFF RICHARD AND THE SHADOWS, DIGGER WAS BACKED BY THE DENVERMEN ON THE VOCAL CUTS WHILE THE GROUP ENJOYED A VERY SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN THEIR OWN RIGHT AS AN INSTRUMENTAL GROUP. THE DENVERMEN’S CUTS CAN BE FOUND ON THE GREAT CANETOAD RECORDS RELEASE, "LET’S GO SURFSIDE WITH THE DENVERMEN". GREAT EARLY AUSSIE 60s POP!!!
