Classic albums by Stevie Wright, Rose Tattoo, The Angels and The Easybeats will be reissued on vinyl for Record Store Day Australia.

Albert Productions, the home of the original releases, has scheduled for release The Easybeats ‘Best of Easybeats’ + ‘Pretty Girl’ (1967) featuring ‘Friday On My Mind’, Stevie Wright’s ‘Hard Road’ (1974) featuring ‘Evie Parts 1, 2 and 3’, The Angels ‘Face To Face’ (1978) with ‘Take A Long Line’ and Rose Tattoo’ self-titled album (1978) with ‘Bad Boy For Love’.

The vinyl reissues will be released on high quality 180gm vinyl. Don Bartley has remastered each new edition from the original analogue tapes.

The Angels’ Doc Neeson is trilled that the ‘Face To Face’ album is heading back to vinyl. “I don’t think it was accidental that Face to Face was on the charts for 71 weeks while we toured every part of Australia “said The Angels’ singer Doc Neeson.“People checked us out live then heard that same, roaring dynamic captured on top quality analogue vinyl. On great vinyl the fans could hear the full quality of sound they had experienced at an Angels concert and that excited them.”

2014 also marks the 50th anniversary of the Albert Productions record label. Ted Albert started the label via the family business in 1964. Albert’s first signing was Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs. He then signed an unknown band called The Easybeats who shot to international fame with ‘Friday On My Mind’.

The company J. Albert & Sons was started four generations earlier in 1885 by Jacques Albert with his son Frank, originally as a watch and clock repair shop in Sydney. Jacques expanded the business to sell musical instruments and songbooks.

Frank started the publishing business in 110 years ago in 1904. Since then the company has stayed in family hands and run by Alexis then Ted and now David Albert.

Record Store Day Australia is April 17
