Review

Review Text Australian quintet the Easybeats (all of the group's members were actually from Europe and met while living in Sydney) had a knack for writing memorable, melodic songs with a bright, British Invasion-like sound, climaxing in the Shel Talmy-produced "Friday on My Mind," which was an international hit in 1967. In all, the Easybeats released seven studio albums, all of which were reissued on CD by Germany's Repertoire Records in the 1990s, and the label has repackaged the material in various ways since, including as this two-disc, 40-track set that combines the group's various singles (both A- and B-sides) with other odds and ends. There are some great songs here, starting with the early singles "For My Woman" and "She's So Fine," the classic "Friday on My Mind," and later, slightly more experimental tracks like "Heaven and Hell" and "Come In, You'll Get Pneumonia," but there is also a lot of stuff that unfortunately now sounds a bit dated and ordinary. Casual listeners may want to try one of the various single-disc best-of sets on the market instead, and truthfully, Repertoire's own double-disc, 56-track Definitive Collection from 1996 does a much better job of presenting the group's history in depth. ~ Steve Leggett
