Post 234 - Ol' 55 - Diana / Goodnight Sweetheart

Ol' 55 dressed in authentic 1950s rocker gear and mixed vintage material with excellent originals mostly penned by bassist, Jimmy Manzie. By September 1975 the band had released it's first single a cover of Paul Anka's Diana on the Mushroom label. The single was a minor hit in Sydney, but it was the follow up track, On The Prowl which launched Ol' 55 into the national Top 20. Here to download is their first single "Diana" b/w "Goodnight Sweetheart" (K-6091) produced by Charles Fisher. The single never appeared on an album till the "Greaseworks Greatest Hits 1976-79" in 1980 and there was a live version on the second album "Fiveslivejive" 1977.
