Biography

 

Jimmy started his solo career and his first album’Bodyswerve’, produced by Mark Opitz, was published in 1984. It included the hit singles ‘No Second Price’and ‘Daylight’ and went straight to number one in the Australian album chart. In 1985 Jimmy recorded a few new songs and recut some of the tracks from ‘Bodyswerve’ for his American debut ‘For The Working Class Man’. The title track was used for Ron Howard’s movie ‘Gung Ho’, the album was mixed for American audience and recorded with American musicians. It sold very well in Australia (several times platinum, one of the biggest selling albums down under). In America it didn’t sell at all.

He recorded two songs (‘Good Times’, ‘Laying Down The Law’) together with INXS for the’Lost Boys’ soundtrack and in 1988 his first live album ‘Barnestorming’ was published (and it sold several times platinum down under). Then, in 1990, he recorded ‘Two Fires’, his fourth studio album. In 1991 he recorded a cover album containing his favourite soul classics (‘Soul Deep’) and in 1992 he went into a studio together with Tina Turner and Diesel to record a great new version of ‘The Best’.

In 1993 ‘Heat’ was another brilliant Barnes album that went straight to the number one of the Australian album chart. An acoustic album, called ‘Flesh And Wood’, was recorded in the same year. On this record Barnes was supported by The Badloves, Joe Cocker, Ross Wilson, Tommy Emmanuel, Diesel, Don Walker, Deborah Conway and Archie Roach. His last album, ‘Psyclone’, was published in 1995. It contains the song ‘Come Undone’ that was written by Diesel, Jimmy’s brother-in-law (he married Janes sister Jep Mahoney). Jimmy recorded a different version of this song with the Dutch band ‘The Pilgrims’, the new version was recently published in the Netherlands.
