Jimmy Barnes – No Second Prize

Red Hot Summer Tour Mildura 9/1/11 | No Second Prize, Jimmy Barnes

‘Bodyswerve’ was the debut solo album by former Cold Chisel vocalist Jimmy Barnes. The album was released on 10 September 1984 and went to No. 1 on the ARIA music chart. It contained covers of tracks by Sam Cooke and Janis Joplin. “No Second Prize” was the album’s first single. The song was originally demoed by Cold Chisel, but never recorded by them. It was written in 1980 as a tribute to Chisel roadies Alan Dallow and Billy Rowe, who died in a truck crash. “Daylight” was also originally a Cold Chisel song. That band’s version later appeared on the 1994 album Teenage Love. A version of this song was also used in a TV commercial promoting milk.
