Australian icon, Normie Rowe celebrates his 74th birthday this week, so we are marking the occasion with a look back to this scintillating performance of his 1965 version of Johnny & the Kidd’s “Shakin’ All Over” – a song that had been covered by many, artists, but only turned into a national #1 hit single by Rowe; backed by “Que Sera Sera,” it was one of the country’s biggest-selling singles of the decade!
Normie's edgy tenor voice and sparkling stage presence made him Aussie’s own king of pop in the 1960s – captured perfectly in this dynamic performance of “Shakin' All Over,” recorded live in 1965. Watch below.
