Song by Johnny O'Keefe. from the album Shakin' at the Stadium. O'Keefe was the first artist to record it, on his debut EP Shakin' at the Stadium, released on the Festival label. This version, ostensibly recorded live at the Sydney Stadium, was in fact a studio recording, overdubbed with the sound of a real audience. An alternate version was recorded and released outside Australia: in the United States (as "Real Wild Child") on Brunswick and in the UK on Coral.

O'Keefe's musical career has spanned four decades from his early days playing in the Minnesota coffee houses to his present station in the Seattle area. He is still active both in the recording studio and on stage. In 1968 O'Keefe was a member of a four-man heavy psychedelic rock band named Calliope. The group recorded one album, Steamed, for Buddah Records before disbanding. O'Keefe is best known for his only hit single, "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues", which was released in September 1972, and reached number 9 on the .

The rest of the album feels like some elegant rogue dealt himself in at the American music poker table. There the roots stuff, a solid cover of Hank Williams' "Honky Tonkin'," his own bluesy "Grease It," and "Louie the Hook vs. The Preacher," but there are more sophisticated tunes here as well, the most beautiful among them the haunting "Valentine Pieces. O'Keefe is utterly solid, so completely diverse and tight; it's a forgotten masterpiece.

Biography How many singer/songwriters can say that Elvis Presley recorded one of their songs and has a co-write with Bob Dylan? In 1972, the legendary Ahmet Ertegun.

An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc (CD), vinyl, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century as individual 78-rpm records collected in a bound book resembling a photograph album; this format evolved after 1948 into single vinyl LP records played at 33 1⁄3 rpm. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have mostly focused on CD and MP3 formats.

And the album sounds live in the studio, with snips of Keith talking and instruments spilling over into each other's mics, like a club concert. The vinyl has an excellent mix, which I would expect from musicians who remember how vinyl is supposed to sound. Keith throws in a cool reggae tune too, Love Overdue. With the odds of a new Stones album of original material being virtually nonexistent, this is as close as Stones fans can get; Keith putting out a record that covers all his musical bases with wit and intelligence. 7 people found this helpful.
