Great show!!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:08pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Debbie!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:08pm cometothesunshine:

All of these sound way better from the original Australian records - so glad I can share them with you all today
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:08pm Tim_Elliott:

Yes. Easybeas are back
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:09pm cometothesunshine:

I started collecting the Easybeats when I was a teenager, after getting their Rhino compilation - it changed my life.
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:10pm Tim_Elliott:

I really dislike this chat software thouigh

Considering your early connection, we are in for a special treat!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:12pm cometothesunshine:

The audio quality of the show has taken a great leap forward since I last profiled the Easybeats 11 years ago - and back then it was just for 30 minutes.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:12pm KarenS:

Hi Kids!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:13pm cometothesunshine:

hey, Karen - welcome!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:14pm cometothesunshine:

Decided to play the original UK 45 for this, though there is a different US single mix and a Rhino stereo mix.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:18pm cometothesunshine:

The Easybeats parents were each given ten pounds to move to Australia - they are a truly international band, but may forever be known as Australia's Beatles
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:19pm cometothesunshine:

This is a small exhibit of what an impressive live band they were at their peak.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:21pm cometothesunshine:

Their follow-up to Friday On My Mind - Who'll Be The One - was the subject of some indecision. It was not a hit, but led the way for a number of inventive recordings in 1967 & 1968
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

George Young was the band's creative visionary - he experimented with songwriting and arrangements until he perfected a simple style that took him into the 1970's
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:22pm Tim_Elliott:

It's a shame they didn't have another big hit in the US
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:23pm cometothesunshine:

It really is
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:24pm cometothesunshine:

George is most famous as the producer and mentor for AC/DC - but he was responsible for so much more. In recent times, he was obsessed with computers and soccer.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:26pm KarenS:

Every song so far should have been played on am radio here.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:26pm cometothesunshine:

This track was recorded at their first session in London, August 1966 - at Abbey Road Studios. Brian Epstein wanted to manage the band, apparently.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:29pm cometothesunshine:

They were blessed with three distinctive lead singers and a twin guitar sound that put most bands to shame.
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:29pm Sharleen:

First time listening, Andrew. The sound is incredible, so thank you! Will this be a podcast or a downloadable something for future listens?
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:29pm KarenS:

Vocals sound Hollies-ish on that last one.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:30pm cometothesunshine:

Sharleen - it will be on this site in their archive, yes!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

This is one of my favorite records
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:31pm Debbie D.:

WFMU archives here: wfmu.org...
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:32pm cometothesunshine:

The first of several marital infidelity songs we will hear today - this is such an emotional epic
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

The US single mix is so great, luckily I have bought dozens of copies to present you with the one you are hearing today.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

They later brought it back to the UK and tinkered with the production - they also rerecorded it, though nothing can top this.
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:33pm Sharleen:

Awesome!! And thanks Debbie D.!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:35pm cometothesunshine:

This was a track recorded in late 1967 that the band shelved. When they split up in 1969, their Australian label issued it as a single Down Under.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:37pm cometothesunshine:

The arranger for these tracks, Bill Shepherd, is best known for his work with the Bee Gees
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:38pm cometothesunshine:

The Easybeats loaned early Bee Gees guitarist, Vince Melouney, a guitar so he could audition for the band. He got the job and the two bands shared a distinctive style in late 1967.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:39pm cometothesunshine:

This song was covered by the Raiders and Gary Walker & The Rain
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

This song was written by George Young, Harry Vanada and Easybeats drummer, Tony Cahill
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:41pm cometothesunshine:

Even in their orchestral period, the Easybeats retained their signature guitar sound.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:43pm cometothesunshine:

The logo for my show is adapted from a single for this song - The Music Goes Round My Head
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:48pm cometothesunshine:

Such a gorgeous song
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:49pm cometothesunshine:

And a wonderful spacious mono mix
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:49pm cometothesunshine:

They must have loved this song - they mixed it and edited it over and over
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:50pm cometothesunshine:

If only we lived in a world where this was a hit song
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:52pm cometothesunshine:

The Easybeats took quite a leap in emotional depth after Falling Off The Edge Of The World
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:52pm Gentlemantony:

Loving the show so far. Great to hear Baby I'm Comin' from the Shame Just Drained LP, and I liked the version of Land of Make Believe I just heard.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:53pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks Gentleman!
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:53pm Gentlemantony:

And thanks for playing the superior US version of Falling of the Edge of the World- this is the version Lou Reed must have fallen in love with.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:53pm cometothesunshine:

Here is another song about marital infidelity!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:54pm cometothesunshine:

That's certainly the version I am in love with - Lou Reed had good taste. He also loved Lazy Old Sun by the Kinks.
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:54pm Gentlemantony:

And now the Shame Just Drained- has a group ever had such a great collection of songs they never released before their disbanding?
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:55pm cometothesunshine:

They didn't release songs when they should have
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:55pm cometothesunshine:

And there are more unissued songs from this era that have never been issued
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:55pm Gentlemantony:

And at least one critic hated Lazy Old Sun- great track off of Something Else.
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:56pm Gentlemantony:

One question I was going to ask George Young on his Tumblr account but never did was the proposed line-up for the aborted Good Times LP. Have any idea of the tracklist?
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:56pm cometothesunshine:

Another shaky relationship song
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:57pm cometothesunshine:

I have a very good idea of the tracklist - the album was delivered to United Artists in the US by their manager.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:58pm cometothesunshine:

All of the multitracks are still vaulted in the UK - they have never been properly presented
  Mon. 10/30/17 6:58pm Gentlemantony:

By the way, the sound quality of these songs are amazing. Sound better than on the Repertoire Records CDs I have of all this.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 6:59pm cometothesunshine:

George Young on lead vocals here
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:00pm cometothesunshine:

This song is very XTC
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:01pm KarenS:

I agree with Tony ... listening on TuneIn and sounds amazing!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:04pm cometothesunshine:

I made an error in announcing Where Did You Go Last Night - actually first appeared on the Raven EP, Son Of Son Of Easyfever
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:04pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks Tony & Karen - I spent about 7 hours on this show in post production getting everything to sound just right.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

I regret never getting to talk with George - I had no idea about his Tumblr - but go figure. I was in Sydney last year and had hoped to make a connection.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:06pm cometothesunshine:

Unfortunately, most of the Easybeats material has never been presented in proper fidelity from the original tapes.
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:06pm gentlemantony:

Never, EVER heard Moonshine and Whiskey Galore, so you fulfilled your Facebook guarantee of me hearing an Easybeats track for the first time.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:07pm cometothesunshine:

I am a pretty honest guy these days!
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:08pm Tim_Elliott:

Do the master tapes still exist?
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:08pm gentlemantony:

Watch Me Burn, great one.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:09pm cometothesunshine:

Many of them yes. But it would require time and effort - which I am prepared to do, but I have been talking about this for 20 years.
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:13pm gentlemantony:

With the great work you did on the Monkees Rhino reissues, whoever owns the master tapes should take you up on it.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:15pm cometothesunshine:

I have been trying
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:15pm gentlemantony:

Sweet Jenie Brown Is Swinging...never heard of this one. If you have Loch Lemond, would love to hear that.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:15pm KarenS:

Andrew is the man to bring Easyfever back!!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:19pm cometothesunshine:

Step Back could have been a hit for the Easybeats too!
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:20pm Michael Luciano:

I made it to the party finally! Sounds great!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:22pm cometothesunshine:

welcome, Michael
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:23pm gentlemantony:

KarenS is correct. Andrew is the man to do it. Now that we're onto covers, can the Valentines' version of My Old Man's a Groovy Old Man be far behind?
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:24pm cometothesunshine:

A lot of tough choices for today's show, Tony
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:24pm Michael Luciano:

I missed all the Easybeats songs :( I'll have to listen from the beginning later!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:27pm cometothesunshine:

More Easybeats coming!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:28pm cometothesunshine:

This could have been a hit too!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:29pm cometothesunshine:

I have played this through the years on Come To The Sunshine
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:30pm Michael Luciano:

It's all good - you do a great job of finding songs that could easily have been hit records under different circumstances - great tunes!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:32pm cometothesunshine:

This is another classic

Another favorite - from their Easyfever EP
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:36pm gentlemantony:

Pretty Girl, the next song after Friday on My Mind that I loved from the Easybeats.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:37pm cometothesunshine:

should have been an A-side too
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:38pm cometothesunshine:

they were too prolific for their own good
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:38pm gentlemantony:

Andrew, you're a bigger fan of Volume 3 than I am. Love Sorry, Funny Feeling, Snowy's Today, and especially the First Day of May, but feel there's some not sturdy tracks on it.
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:39pm gentlemantony:

An odd B-side to Heaven and Hell. I couldn't see Pretty Girl be THE followup to Friday, but would have been better than Who'll Be the One.
  Mon. 10/30/17 7:40pm gentlemantony:

Great mix of Easy.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:40pm cometothesunshine:

I think Volume 3 is their most consistent Australian album
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:42pm cometothesunshine:

I'll Make You Happy is so strong - they hit many peaks
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:48pm cometothesunshine:

Nice to hear St. Louis not in fake stereo
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:49pm cometothesunshine:

Their style changed drastically in 68/69 - this was the style Vanda/Young stuck with for the first half of the 1970's
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:50pm cometothesunshine:

In the late 1970's they went "new wave" techno with Flash & The Pan
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:52pm cometothesunshine:

Here is one of their early post Easybeats 45's as Moondance: "Lazy River"
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:56pm cometothesunshine:

I always wondered if Ray Singer produced this track, the flip of St. Louis - sounds pretty basic, like they could have done it themselves.
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:56pm cometothesunshine:

Everybody got bluesy
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:57pm cometothesunshine:

Kind of an early Fleetwood Mac vibe (Peter Green era)
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:57pm KarenS:

Andrew, I don't know how you keep topping yourself but keep it up!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:58pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Karen!
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 7:59pm cometothesunshine:

This show goes a little long - stayed tuned

a brilliant song inspired by the Swingle Singers no less
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:02pm cometothesunshine:

I'm inspired by the Swingle Singers too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/30/17 8:02pm Steeley Chris:

The Valentines (Bon Scott on lead vocals) released Peculiar Hole in the Sky as a single in August 1968
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:03pm cometothesunshine:

yes, there were so many great covers I couldn't get to today - I almost made this a three hour show
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:04pm cometothesunshine:

They were a credible R&B band too - For My Woman is every bit as good as anything in that revival genre
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:05pm cometothesunshine:

Harry Vanda played in a Ventures/Shadows type instrumental band prior to moving to Australia - a tremendous guitarist
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:09pm cometothesunshine:

So many more songs I could have played today
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:10pm cometothesunshine:

George Young was a brilliant songwriter/arranger - he will be missed
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:11pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks all for joining me today and listening
Avatar Mon. 10/30/17 8:11pm cometothesunshine:

I hope you enjoyed it.
