Various Artists - Sixties Downunder Vol 1
Sixties Downunder Vol. 1 is a carefully conceived and compiled collection of the most credible, exciting and enduring Oz Rock tracks from the 1964-69 period. It features most of this country's vital 1960s rock legends, such as The Easybeats, The Loved Ones, The Twilights, The Master's Apprentices, Max Merritt & the Meteors, Normie Rowe & the Playboys, Bobby & Laurie, The Groove, Ray Brown & the Whispers, Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs, Tony Worsley & the Blue Jays, Mike Furber & the Bowery Boys, The Purple Hearts, Lynne Randell, The Bee Gees, The Groop and Ross Wilson's first band, The Pink Finks.

Raven has paid diligent attention to audio standards with this collection. All but four of the 27 tracks have been remastered from original master tapes. This care has resulted in a sparkling, vibrant sound which brings new life to many classics. Sixties Downunder Vol. 1 is lavishly packaged, with a selection of rare historical photographs and a scholarly essay on the period by Glenn A. Baker. For those who grew up in the era, or those discovering it for the first time, this may be the best value CD to reach the market.   (Raven press release)
