LAUREL LEA :
" Laurel Lea, born Lorraine Lianos, was a regular Australia(n) TV singer on shows such as Brian Henderson's "Bandstand" and Johnny O'Keefe's "Six O'clock Rock" in the late 1950s early 1960s, mostly singing cover versions of US hits.
She started out with Lee Gordon on his Leedon label in 1958 with a backing group called The Crescents.
Laurel married fellow "Bandstand" singer Kevin Todd ....
Laurel's parents owned a travelling rock 'n' roll tent show. In the 60s, she travelled with them around Australia doing rock shows in local halls, and in the mid-1970s, she joined back up with Johnny O'Keefe and a few others from the earlier rock years, appearing in clubs together in the "Good Old Days of Rock 'n' Roll" show.
Laurel made several records, but had little chart success. Her biggest hit was "Treasure Of Your Love".
She also had a band in the 80s called "Chockarock," which toured the pub/club circuit and played old time rock and roll.
Laurel died on January 31, 1992 .... of Leukaemia "
" In August 1974 O'Keefe put together a package tour called "The Good Old Days of Rock'n'Roll" which featured many of his old friends including Johnny Devlin, Lonnie Lee, Jade Hurley, Barry Stanton, Tony Brady and Laurel Lee (sic). It premiered at St George Leagues Club in Sydney and continued successfully for the next four years. "

WHY NOT INVEST IN COLLECTABLES ?

The 45's we are now listing are all from 1 collection. They have been played, by a fastidious collector, but because they have been stored in poly liners / inside their original sleeves, inside another outer bag/sleeve, for the last 40+ years, they are still in amazing condition for their vintage.
