Take It Greasy was the first album to be released by Australian 50's retro band Ol' 55. The album sold very well in Australia, reaching number 3 on the national charts and was awarded a platinum record. At the time, 1950s music and culture had gained a newfound interest in Australia amongst a younger generation, largely due to the influence of the very popular TV show Happy Days and earlier investigations into doo-wop by the group Daddy Cool.
