The Best of
A hugely popular young band from Australia, The Easybeats shook the world with ‘Friday On My Mind’, an intense and catchy song that expressed the frustrations of Sixties youth. Inspired by The Beatles, The Easybeats were also caught up in a wave of pop hysteria, as their records sold in mil-lions. Founder members Harry Vanda, Dick Diamonde, Steve Wright, George Young and Gordon 'Snowy' Fleet all originally came from Europe, but formed The Easybeats in Sydney, Australia in 1964. They enjoyed many hits ‘down under’ before relocating to England in 1966. This ‘Best Of’ CD collection features 20 essential Easybeats single and album tracks, recorded during their stay in London with producer Shel Talmy. A special bonus track features Stevie Wright singing on his solo single ‘Evie’. This splendid compilation shows just how cheerfully The Easybeats combined pop with rock’n’roll and soul at the height of their rocketing career.
