5.0 out of 5 stars At last... 10 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
...after many years of waiting and searching the original version of "Rock and Roll I gave you the best Years of my Life"
on CD.
For some reason the only versions readily available are very poor covers.
The version here is not exactly the same as the vinal single but it is close enough.
Without doubt one of the best songs to be written in the seventies, or any other decade for that matter, it has always been a source of amazement to me that it does not get more air-play.
Had Lennon written it would be considered one of the all time greats.
Kevin Johnson is best known in his native Australia where, according to the sleeve notes, the song really is big.
Surely most of us will empathise with;
"Rock and roll I gave you all the best years of my life...I was so busy in the back room writing love songs to you while you were changing your direction and I never even knew I was always just one step behind you.."
This is,however, not a one track album.
The other tracks all show that Kevin Johnson is a very talanted singer-songwriter.
As fresh and relevant today as it was when it was first issued.
Get this one while it's still available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discovering Kevin 19 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard the first track'Rock'n Roll, I gave you the best years of my life'on BBC Radio2- Wake up with Wogan, and instantly empathised with its sentiments. It gave me much food for thought, moreso nowadays, when there is such a plethora of young and not-so-young people seeking stardom on numerous TV programmes. I recommend it to anyone feeling dejected after a similar experience, or who knows someone with such an experience-the singer speaks of his meeting with Suzanne, who helped him 'understand he'd never be a star' I hope anyone in a similar situation will also meet such a soul-partner to help them understand their own prospects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Found It! 24 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD was bought purely to obtain "Rock and Roll I gave you the best Years of my Life"
The rest of the album is ok though, very easy to listen to.
I can't believe that Kevin Johnson is not better known in this country.
