iTunes Review

Anyone who's ever longed for the weekend will know why "Friday on My Mind" is straight-up ‘60s rock perfection. But there was more to Australia's Easybeats than their one American hit: The Vanda/Young team wrote tough, tuneful pop and rock songs with hints of psychedelia, and producer Shel Talmy brought the crunch he gave The Kinks and The Who. "Do You Have a Soul" oozes attitude, and it doesn't get scrappier than their take on Ike & Tina Turner's "River Deep, Mountain High."

Be careful choosing version of Friday On My Mind to buy

Be careful when choosing which version of The Easybeats' hit "Friday On My Mind" to purchase from iTunes. The one that clocks in at 2:56, from the album "The Best of Stevie Wright and The Easybeats," has been re-mixed to bring the vocals WAY out front; one can barely hear the instruments in the background. Instead, I suggest the 2:43-long version from the album "The Easybeats; Friday On My Mind." It appears to be more in keeping with the original mix from the hit single, in which the vocals and the instruments are more balanced. (Naming an album "The Best of Stevie Wright..." implies that someone had an interest in featuring him at the expense of the band as a whole. Remember: It takes four lead singers to change a light bulb; one to change the bulb, and three to tell him how good he looks doing it.)

great band

glad they finally made itunes! of course the classic Friday On mY Mind-IMHO the best song from the sixties and one of the best songs in all of rock, but others like All gone boy, goodtimes, and land of make believe make them a band worth listening to. Main songwriter George Young also was part of Flash and the Pan and is also the older brother of AC/DC ANgus and Malcom and has produced many of their albums for the rock trivia -band member and main songwriter George Young is the older brother of AC/DC malcom and Angus Young and their first producer (along with easybeat member Harry Vanda) Vanda and Young were also the duo behind Flash and the Pan (Hey St, Peter) and songwriters of Love is in the Air-apparently they couuld write any style-go figure Love and AC/DC???????

Biography

Formed: 1964 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australi

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '80s

The Easybeats occupy a unique place in the pantheon of 1960s British rock acts. For starters, they were Australian, except that they really weren't -- they met in Sydney alright, and being based in Australia with the talent they had gave them a leg-up over any of the local competition. But lead singer Stevie Wright originally came from England (although he'd been in Australia for some years), and bassist Dick Diamonde hailed from the Netherlands, as did guitarist Harry Vanda, while the others, guitarists...
