Issy Di or Issy Dy or Issy Dye depending on what book, record or web site you look at is one of Australia’s leading original cabaret stars, with over 40 years in showbiz. With all the experience of a seasoned TV & stage performer and dealing with 100’s of clubs/casino’s and concerts, Issy runs one of the most professional & diverse entertainment agencies in the country. In the 1960's Issy appeared on Television programs like Bandstand, Kommotion, The GO! Show and Uptight. In late 1969 Issy had his first hit song with "Incense" and moved into the 1970's as a regular presenter and performer on the "Happening 70s" TV Show. This continued for three years. During the 1970s. Here to download is his 1971 single on Festival "Family Full Of Soul" b/w "I'm Your Tiger" (FK-4300). The B side was written by Johnny Young and being a Lewis/Young Production I would assume Johnny Young produced this single and the B side. All I can say is that Johnny (or who ever produced it) was doing some serious experimentation with the sound, have a listen and see if it sounds psychedelic to you. I'm not sure how many singles and if any LP's Issy recorded as all my books and internet sites have no discography on him.
