Hey, welcome to my "guide" to a few of my favorite rock and pop records. This isn't a definitive list, by any means, just some random comments about a few records that have stood out over the years, or that I've found the time to review.

The Easybeats "Aussie Beat That Shook the World" (Repertoire, 1996)
Hey, who knew that AC-DC's Angus Young had an older brother who starred in one of Australia's all-time greatest '60s beat bands? Well, here they are -- the Easybeats, whose hit single "Friday On My Mind" brought them fleeting global fame, but whose follow-up 45s and LPs failed to crack back into the Top 20. But man, what a raw, wailing Aussiebeat sound they had! This 2-CD collection includes almost all their singles, including my favorite, "Bring a Little Lovin' ", which is built around a deliciously wicked guitar riff. Yeah, this may be a bit more than most folks (myself included) can listen to in one sitting... but taken in small doses, this is some truly great music. Recommended!
