Judy Stone - More Than Molecules
More Than Molecules/Is It Wrong
Judy Stone (born 1 January 1942) is an Australian pop singer who grew up in Sydney, and came to national prominence in the early 1960s through her regular TV appearances on the pop music show Bandstandand and touring with Col Joy. Around this time she signed to Festival records and in 1962 released her first single "I'll Step Down/Mommy and Daddy Were Twistin" which became her first hit. Col and Judy had become popular as a duo featuring on bandstand so in 1963 they released an album called "Col & Judy". Her second single "Finders Keepers" made little impression on the charts and it wasn't until 1964 that she hit the charts again in a big way with"4,003,221 Tears From Now/Hello Faithless".During 1964 Judy was working steadily on the club circuit, 1965 saw her score her third hit with a cover version of Sandy Posey's "Born a Woman/I Need You" The rest of the sixties saw her continue to work in the clubs she also took some interstate and overseas trips.
In 1971 Judy recorded "Day by Day" from the musical Godspell but her version was overshadowed by Colleen Hewett's . The seventies saw three more hits for Judy "Mare,Mare, Mare" "Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone" and "Silver Wings And Golden Rings" 1977 saw her set of to the UK where she signed a management deal .
In the Eighties Judy was still recording and one of the singles that she recorded was "More Than Molecules/Is It Wrong" another lovely song that for one reason or another wasn't a hit but I think it's great.
