Normie Rowe: It Ain't Necessarily So, But It Is... Normie Rowe

[cover art]

Normie Rowe was the first and biggest solo star of Australian pop in the 60s. His 1965 debut album It Ain't Necessarily So, But It Is..., recorded with his backing band the Playboys, includes rockers like "Everything's All Right", "Shakin' All Over" and "Lindy Lou." Surprisingly, they also cut a version of "The Stones I Throw," written by Robbie Robertson and originally released as a single with Levon & the Hawks the same year.

The LP first came out on Sunshine Records and was then reissued on the Calendar label. Rowe's version of "The Stones I Throw" was released as a 45 B-side in 1966, paired with "Pride and Joy" (Sunshine QK 1344), reaching #6 on the Aussie charts, and also on an EP (1966' "The Stones I Throw", Sunshine QX 11187). It has later surfaced on several Australian Rowe compilations.
