The Easybeats, "Friday on My Mind"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are at IBC Studios, London, in September 1966, in the company of Australians - The Easybeats, for their "Friday On My Mind," produced by Shel Talmy and first released on United Artists...
"Formed in 1964 in Sydney, The Easybeats left for "Swingin' London" on 10th July, 1966, which was quite a big deal in Australia. After a false start, they ended up recording with the independent American in London, Shel Talmy, who also produced a fistful of The Who's singles and around a dozen for The Kinks. The song has been much covered, the best two versions known to me are by David Bowie and Earth-Quake (the first single on the Beserkley label).
By the end of 1969, The Easybeats were finding things 'not so easy' and broke up." - KV
