1. Whispering Jack

Answer: John Farnham

John Farnham is one of the icons of Australian pop music but, prior to the release of this album his career had come to an abrupt stop. He had left the Little River Band as their lead singer and his solo work was almost non-existent. He had little money to record another album and it was left to his manager, Glen Wheatley, to mortgage his own home to fund its creation. Built on the back of the amazing first single, "You're the Voice", which radio stations were initially reticent to play, the album took the Australian charts by storm.

It stayed at number one on the ARIA charts for 25 weeks and was the best charting album in Australia for the decade that was the 1980s. Released in 1986 the album also featured the singles "Pressure Down", "A Touch of Paradise" and "Reasons".

Released in September, 2000 it boasted the single "My Happiness" which would win the ARIA Single of the Year and was voted, by listeners, as Triple J's number one song in their Hottest 100 Charts.
