SONY MUSIC 88985317002 Seasons Of Change | Happening Hits Of The Hippy Era Brent’s notes
After a few false starts and release date changes, finally this one is on the way! 3 CDs spanning the ‘hippy’ (both local and overseas)
years of late 60s into the early 70s – a period of change and evolution both culturally and musically!  

Seasons Of Change (title track is the Bon Scott Fraternity version mastered for the very first time from the original single master tape) combines
both many hit singles and some key album tracks that were all part of that evolving period. A set of clichéd psychedelic titles
was avoided, instead a combo of titles from the “tuning-in, turning-on and dropping out period” along with titles reflecting the youth ‘vibe’
of the period of ‘splitting’ and ‘hitting the road’ to the songs that said something, also the tracks where folk met rock to the hits
that were just full of peace and love or just plain ‘groovy’!

In many ways, I just wanted to capture the mood of that era, reflecting in many ways what was heard on radio during the period. Several titles have
previously been included on earlier Volumes of the Australian Pop Series, However back then some master tapes where either unable to be
accessed or thought to be long lost, but with some recent discoveries and use of some original masters the temptation to upgrade the sound
of these classics from their original masters was too great.  Autumn’s 1971 hit “Falling” is one such example, presented here for the first time
from the original  session master (as opposed to the still missing album master). While many titles I would have loved to included, of course
we are always restricted by various issues, including what recordings can actually be licensed (and what can’t get over the line).
