Dreaming My Dreams Of You/One Eyed Man
Born in the central Victorian city of Bendigo, Hewett began her career at the age of 12 when she sang with The Esquires at the Bendigo YMCA. During the 1960s she toured Australia with a number of groups including the Laurie Allen Revue. She began her recording career in the early 1970s with the release of her debut single "Superstar" and sef-titled album Colleen Hewett. Cast in the musical Godspell at the original Playbox Theatre in Melbourne, she received a gold record for "Day by Day" (1972), her song from the show. These successes led to her being crowned Queen of Pop two years running. She later achieved two further gold records for "Dreaming My Dreams With You" (1980) and her version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" (1983).
Dreaming My Dreams With You charted at #2 Sydney #1 Melbourne #2 Brisbane #1 Adelaide #1 Perth #34 NZ . Dreaming My Dreams With You appears on the 1983 Self Titled Album while the B-Side is from the 1974 M'Lady album.
