Albert Productions Celebrates 50 Years With 102 Track 5 CD Compilation

by Paul Cashmere on July 23, 2014

in New Music,News

Albert Productions mark its 50th year with a massive 102 track compilation documenting the company history in Australian music which gave us AC/DC, The Easybeats, Rose Tattoo, Billy Thorpe and The Angels.

‘Good Times’ Celebrating 50 Years of Albert Productions’ will also include two previously unreleased songs from the Albert archives, Rose Tattoo doing The Stones’ ‘Street Fighting Man’ and a demo of The Easybeats ‘She’s So Fine’.

The very first release for Albert Productions was Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs ‘Mashed Potato’ in August, 1964. The song had a total of three words in the lyrics “mashed potato yeah”.

Albert Productions launched in 1964 as the recording arm for the 129-year old company J. Albert & Sons. The company is run today by fourth generation Albert, David Albert. David succeeded Ted Albert, who founded the recording business after witnessing local teenagers high on surf culture and ‘Beatlemania’ that his family business should become involved in music production and build a worthy record label with a catalogue of Australian songs and artists.

George Young, Easybeats co-founder and songwriter and producer in the Vanda and Young partnership said, ‘To survive 10 years in the music business is an achievement. To survive 50 years – and thrive during the process – is something else entirely and requires many talents, not least of all integrity. Its founder, Ted Albert, had that in abundance, as it does his successor, David Albert. Long may it continue.’

‘Good Times: Celebrating 50 years of Albert Productions’ will be released on August 15.

Why AC/DC Never Play ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’

AC/DC have rarely performed the classic ‘It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock n Roll)’. The song was only played at AC/DC shows between 1975 and 1979. During that time they performed it 235 times which is a lot, but then as an Australian pub band it was not usual for the band to play seven times a week and sometimes twice on the same day.
