Between 1971 to 1978 Sherbet produced 20 national top 40 singles and were the first Australian band to top the AUD1 million mark in album sales in this country. During this period Braithwaite won the Australian King of Pop Award three times.

The most popular song was undoubtedly The Horses, holding the number one position on the national charts over three consecutive weeks. The unexpected success of this single led to being voted Australian Song of the Year at the 1991 Australian Music Awards. Braithwaite remains an integral part of the evolution and development of Australian popular music and is a must-see live on stage!
