What’s The Rockbrat Listening To Today ? Divinyls – I’m On Your Side

The 4th (and best) single off the 1991 album

The fourth single released off their big selling self-titled album from 1991. It is also one of the stand-out tracks on the record, and – oddly enough – not written by either Amphlett or McEntee. This ballad just gets better with age, and it is timeless. It is Christina Amphlett’s vocal delivery on the tune which makes is memorable – be in do doubt about that. The break-through album, which came after 10 years of hard work on the tough Australian live circuit, is one of my favorite Divinyls records. If you have dismissed this platter, then give it another whirl – ‘Lay Your Body Down’, the stunning ‘If Love Was a Gun’, ‘Bless My Soul (It’s Rock-n-Roll)” – yes folks, this was indeed the Divinyls time and their success was well deserved. From memory me and The Cowboy took in a few more live gigs during this period – one show was a freebie on a Sunday afternoon at Sydney’s Kings Cross – and another was at the Queanbeyan Leagues Club on Boxing Day of 1991 – in a year which turned out to be one of the best – for one of the most impressive acts Australia has produced.
