Johnny O'Keefe
Real Wild Child CD

Although he remained largely unknown in the Northern hemisphere, Johnny O’Keefe was Australia's first and biggest indigenous Rock 'n' Roll star.
Many of his records were covers of US and UK hits, but he also penned several of his releases; his own best-known song, internationally, is 'Real Wild Child', a number which is nowadays more readily associated with Iggy Pop via his million-selling 1986 cover 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 34 track collection presents the Very Best of Johnny's Rock 'n' Roll years, between 1957 and 1962, and features 26 Aussie hits, including six Number 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.
