According to Noel McGrath, during 1961, Shegog sold more records in Victoria and Tasmania than Johnny O'Keefe did during the same period.

Billed as Australia's foremost country and folk singer, Kevin Shegog grew up in Tasmania, where he learnt guitar and country songs accompanying records he heard on the radio. He moved to Victoria in 1955, joining the Gold Toppers. It was not until 1959 that he recorded with Planet Records - Now there's a label to collect!
...
People unfamiliar with Shegog's material will appreciate the Planet recordings which include well known songs such as Riders in the Sky, High Noon, Mule Train and Cry of the Wild Goose which are all covers. It's pleasing to see that Kevin wrote quite a lot of his own material which stands up pretty well to the covers here. Some of his own songs date from as early as 1960 the most recent recording on this album is from 1974; On Melbourne Airport, Tullamarine, recorded in 1971, and Pentridge (1975) Shegog at least shows that he is aware of contempory themes.

How sad it was to hear of the passing of Kevin Shegog late last year, knowing that virtually none of his formidable catalogue was in print, nor had been for so many years. So it's a most welcome addition to my CD library that I can now boast a full 20 track collection of his work.
