Post 221 - Jon Blanchfield - Son Of A Simple Man / Waltzing Matilda

"Son Of A Simple Man" was written by Brian Cadd and Don Mudie from Axiom who actually provided the backing for the song as well as Brian doing backing vocals. The song was issued by RCA in 1969 and was written about bush ranger Ned Kelly. Jon had several hits in his hometown of Brisbane; this was his 7th RCA single, again a non charter in Melbourne and Sydney despite going to #1 in Tasmania. Here to download is that single "Son of a Simple Man" b/w "Waltzing Matilda" (101874).
