Johnny Farnham's first #1 single on the Go-Set National Singles Charts was the novelty song "Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)" released in 1967. Selling 180 000 copies, "Sadie" was the highest selling single by an Australian artist of the decade. His first Christmas song was a non-album single, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" b/w "The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot". Here to download out of December 1970 is Johnny's Christmas LP "Christmas Is" (SOEX 9700). The single, "Christmas Happy", was also released in December. The album was re-released as Memories of Christmas on 13 November 1995 and again on 6 December 1997 with different covers each time. The album was produced by Howard Gable for EMI/Columbia.
