To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Australian label Mushroom Records, Warner Music Australia presents a great new compilation, "Mushroom4 0: Rock", and announces a program to reissue and upgrade some classic material from the Mushroom catalogue.
"Mushroom 40: Rock" lives up to its title with 40 tracks going back 40 years, focussing on the rock side of Mushroom's heritage. It begins with classic early hits from the likes of Matt Taylor and Madder Lake and mid-70s breakthrough mega-hits from Skyhooks and Ol'55. It moves through the late '70s (Split Enz, Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons), into the early 80s (Sunnyboys, Models, Hunters & Collectors), mid and late-80s (Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes, Choirboys), into the 90s and beyond (Bad Loves, 28 Days, Eskimo Joe). It features a number of rarities for collectors, including the first ever reissue of the single by Friends, 'Lucille' (recorded live at Sunbury in '73; it was one of two 7" singles released simultaneously in early '73 to launch the label), Russell Morris's hit "Hush", and the non-album original hit single recording of Sports' "Who Listens To the Radio?"
This announcement coincides with the release of three early Mushroom album titles in upgraded editions - the seminal 1974 Chain compilation "The History of Chain", the 1978 Madder Lake compilation "The Best of Madder Lake", and the collectable 1974 album "First Offense" by Perth/Melbourne blues rock outfit Sid Rumpo. All titles have been mastered from original tapes, and include a handful of bonus tracks as well as liner notes.
