A press release from John Farnham's record label in 1981 congratulates him on his album Uncovered achieving gold sales and announces his upcoming national tour. 

The news was significant at the time, as John had not released an album for several years. This success indicated that the recent change of direction he took in his career to focus on his music was beginning to pay off and his star was back on the rise. 

Perhaps because he was still a household name, despite the gap in his recording career, EMI didn't feel it necessary to reference John's status on the Australian pop music landscape. This press release sticks to the news at hand rather than focusing on John's achievements to date.
