Frank Ifield

Francis Edward Ifield OAM (born 30 November 1937) is an Australian country music singer and guitarist who often incorporated yodelling into his music. After living in Australia, Ifield returned to the United Kingdom in November 1959 where he had four number-one hits on the UK Singles Chart with his cover versions of "I Remember You" (May 1962), "Lovesick Blues" (December), "The Wayward Wind" (March 1963) and "Confessin' That I Love You" (September).

Ifield also was featured on Jolly What!, a 1964 compilation comprising eight of his tracks and four by the Beatles, which has been considered an attempt to cash in on Beatlemania. (Vee-Jay Records had gotten US distribution rights to The Beatles along with Ifield). Another album comprising tracks by the Beatles and Ifield, The Beatles & Frank Ifield on Stage, was released.
