'Good Times', Box Set Celebrating the Artists of ALBERT PRODUCTIONS

 
 
After half a century in the business, it’s little surprise that renowned Australian record label Albert Productions knows how to appropriately celebrate a milestone, with the company announcing in association with Sony Music Australia today the August release of a 102-track compilation/retrospective, Good Times: Celebrating 50 Years Of Albert Productions.
 
Set to hit stores on Friday, August 15, Good Times will feature two unreleased tracks – one each from Rose Tattoo and The Easybeats – and canvasses the preceding five decades that led Alberts to its current position as one of the country’s most recognisable and respected labels.
 
The Easybeats’ contribution is especially enticing, featuring a particularly youthful Stevie Wright’s vocal confirmation of it being only the second time they’d attempted to lay it down, and serves as an icing-like complement to the release’s base cake of hand-picked studio and live recordings.
 
Naturally, the Good Times journey starts at the beginning of the Albert journey, with Billy Thorpe And The Aztecs’ 1964 release Mashed Potato, and ends with the label’s poignant most recent release Walking In The Rain, a Flash And The Pan cover courtesy of the late Doc Neeson of The Angels.
 
In-between, you’ll find cuts from a slew of acclaimed Australian acts, including the iconic AC/DC as well as The Angels, Alex Hood, The Imagination, Dallas Crane, Knievel, Seabellies, Flash And The Pan, The Missing Links, Ted Mulry, Bobby & Laurie, Choirboys and John Paul Young, who comes to the table with the instantly recognisable Love Is In The Air.
 
Complementing the deluxe set’s physical release will be a 48-page booklet stuffed with rare pics and a historical retrospective of the label and its catalogue that gives a comprehensive insight into the legendary label’s rise to power from its humble family origins in 1964 under the guidance of Ted Albert, then-MD of parent company J. Albert & Son.
 
The ensuing 50 years have seen Albert Productions become an indelible part of the national music scene, with its artists having ascended to the heights of ARIA Award victories, ARIA Hall Of Fame recognition and beyond.
Good Times: Celebrating 50 Years Of Albert Productions will be available for pre-orders from July 25.
