John Farnham - Whispering Jack (1986) [1987, Japan, 1st Press]

"Whispering Jack" is the 12th studio album by Australian adult contemporary pop singer John Farnham. It was produced by Ross Fraser, and released on 20 October 1986, peaking at #1 on the Australian Kent Music Report Album Charts. "Whispering Jack" has become the second best-selling-album in Australia, behind Meatloaf's album "Bat Out of Hell", and the highest selling album in Australia by an Australian artist - 24x Platinum indicating sales of over 1.68 million copies sold. It spent 25 weeks at the #1 spot on the Album Charts during 1986–1987, it was awarded the 1987 ARIA Award for "Album of the Year", and was the best charting album for the decade of the 1980s in Australia. It was the first Australian-made album to be released on Compact Disc within Australia. One of Farnham's biggest hits, "You're the Voice" was issued as the lead single from this album and peaked at #1 on the Kent Music Report Singles Charts. Prior to this album, Farnham's career had stalled after being recruited and then leaving as lead singer of Australia's Little River Band. Farnham's manager, Glenn Wheatley, mortgaged his home to raise funds for the recording of this album. After initial reluctance by major Australian radio stations to play the lead single, "You're the Voice", public demand became overwhelming and they relented. The song became one of the standout Number One songs on the Australian Charts of the 1980s and still remains a staple of Australian Radio. "Whispering Jack" restarted Farnham's career and kept it rolling across two more decades. On 21 November 2006, Whispering Jack was re-released to celebrate its 20th Anniversary, which came with a bonus track, an extended studio version of "Pressure Down" and with a DVD of the edited 1987 Whispering Jack Live in Concert televised performance.

John Farnham - Whispering Jack (1986) [1987, Japan, 1st Press]

Former Little River Band singer John Farnham managed to reinvent himself as an '80s pop star on Whispering Jack. Immensely popular in Australia, the album as well as the first single "You're the Voice" sat at the top of the charts for many weeks. Whispering Jack was an album of slick, commercial synth pop, and from that point of view it was quite good. "You're the Voice," which comes complete with bagpipe solo, is the obvious highlight of this set. It became an instant classic, and is the song this album is most remembered for, even though "Pressure Down" and "A Touch of Paradise" also became hit singles. On a couple of tracks, Farnham moves into more of a straight rock territory ("Love to Shine," "Let Me Out"). Farnham's solo career really took off following this album.
