Post 257 - Judy Stone - Hasta Manana / Runaway

Judy Stone was born on the 1st of January 1942. She is an Australian pop singer from Sydney, who came to national prominence in the early 1960s through her regular TV appearances on the pop music show Brian Henderson's Bandstand and her many hit records. After travelling throughout the country with "The Reg Lindsay Show", Judy began touring with Col Joye and, before long, it was in the sixties that Judy's hit songs "I'll Step Down", "Born A Woman", "4003221 Tears From Now", established her as a recording artist as well as a T.V. star. The song that gained Judy the National Award in 1974, "Field of Stone", coupled with "Mare, Mare, Mare", earned Judy the distinction of being the first Australian Female entertainer with two records concurrently featuring in the top 40. In 1976, "Silver Wings and Golden Rings" firmly established her in the country pop scene. Here to download is her single from 1976 on Polydor "Hasta Manana" b/w "Runaway" (2079 084) produced by John Kerr. This song added to her successes, proving a hit in Australia with credits from England and Scotland.
