SONG PROFILE
 
Holy Joe The Salvo

Recorded by Australian Johnny Ashcroft.

Ashcroft’s fifth hit, Holy Joe The Salvo, was written on the back of an airline sick-bag. It became the Salvation Army’s 1975 Red Shield Appeal Song. The ‘Sallys’ then became widely known as the ‘Salvos’.

Ashcroft was the first country artist in Australia to have gold records presented on stage, when three were bestowed simultaneously before a live audience in Tamworth, NSW, in 1971.
