Post 194 - Ol' Skydaddys - Rockin' Christmas

In 1996, Bongo Starkie and Freddy Strauks joined forces with Ross Hannaford and Wayne Duncan from Daddy Cool, plus Frankie J. Holden and Wilbur Wilde from Ol' 55 as Ol' Skydaddys in order to play the cabaret/club circuit. Their first recording and I think their last was this Christmas classic a cover of Ol' 55's "Rockin Christmas" (TL-001) from the various artist album The Great Aussie Christmas. I can't seem to find any other recordings by Ol' Skydaddys and what a pity, with a line up like this I'm sure there would have been some great songs by these guys.
