...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.

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.

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.

Really relaxing and enjoyable CD with varied tracks and plenty of them! Wish I had 'found' Kevin Johnson years ago.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The sound quality of this reissue is great, nice and crisp (as you would expect from 'Repertoire'). The booklet is a mere 6 sided foldout with brief liner notes and track info. The disc has 20 tracks lasting 78.38 mins. In my humble opinion the first 5 minutes are the best, what a truly great song 'Rock & roll...' is. It stands head and shoulders above the other 19 tracks which are at best OK. I bought this cd for one track only (Rock & Roll...) and so i'm not disappointed as its worth buying this cd to own it on cd at last.
