Ultimate Collection, The (Bootleg Years)
Not yet reviewed.
State of the Art studios were springing up around Australia with great young engineers, producers and arrangers, all hell-bent on showing Australia (and hopefully the world) just how unique and accomplished they were becoming.
And our Industry turned in on itself, largely abandoning the previous practice of imitating the music scenes happening in the U.S. and U.K.
I stumbled into this exciting moment after some time in Europe, and discovered that the new Australian music was not like anywhere else. We were not able to compete directly with overseas markets, so we looked at making our own; creating the early days of what has become the innovative, brave and singular music scene Australia has today.
Listening through this album again takes me right back to those times. Not just the studios, musicians, writers and performers who all worked together but also the wonderful audiences and gigs we played. The supportive radio networks, the TV shows and the bringing together of the separate record companies, publishers and promotors into an organized professional Music Industry.
This compilation springs from the three Bootleg albums I made between 1972 and 1974. Right in the middle of when all this was happening!
How fortunate was I?”
