  • A total of 11 Sherbet songs reached the Australian top 10, and the band became the darlings of Australia's teenyboppers and made regular appearances on the top TV pop show Countdown.
  • Sherbet's albums also charted extremely well in their homeland: 1973's On With The Show peaked at #6, 1974's Slipstream reached #5, 1975's Life ... Is For Living was a #6 hit, and their first Greatest Hits compilation from 1975 became their first #1 album.
  • Beginning in 1975, Sherbet's records (including "Life... Is For Living") were produced by Richard Lush who had begun his career in the UK as a trainee engineer at EMI's Abbey Road Studios, where he helped to engineer a number of Beatles' recordings including Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
  • Throughout this era, Sherbet toured Australia regularly and with remarkable thoroughness; they were one of the few bands to consistently commit to playing full-scale concerts in even the remotest regions of the country.
  • In January 1976, guitarist Clive Shakespeare left Sherbet citing 'personal reasons'. The last song he played on before leaving the band was "Child's Play", a #5 hit in February. (Source)
