Festival Records and Warner Music Australia are excited to announce the Feb 24 release of THE GLORY DAYS OF AUSSIE PUB ROCK, VOLUME 2!
The follow up to one of the best-selling Australian compilations of 2016 (and very clearly the best one to feature solely Australian content), GLORY DAYS 2 includes another 4CDs worth of classic Aussie rock from the 70s, 80s and into the 90s. It features different tracks from the much the same list of big names as last time and much much more and is available for pre-order now.
That list of big names is massive. Cold Chisel, The Angels, Men at Work, Australian Crawl, the Sports, Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, Mental As Anything, Split Enz, Sunnyboys, Screaming Jets, Rose Tattoo, the Radiators, Paul Kelly & The Coloured Girls, the Dingoes, Ian Moss, Goanna, Dragon, Flowers, Noiseworks, Hunters & Collectors, Skyhooks (their lone post-Shirl hit ‘Over the Border’), Baby Animals, Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs, TMG, Dragon, Dave Warner’s From the Suburbs, Choirboys, Richard Clapton, the Saints, the Reels, Mi-Sex, Mondo Rock, the Models, The Badloves (with Jimmy Barnes), Matt Finish, V Spy V Spy, Uncanny X-Men, Warumpi Band, Weddings Parties Anything, Russell Morris, Black Sorrows; all these and more are represented by tracks that not only shook pub walls back in the day but pumped out of transistor radios and, in most cases, Sunday night ABC TV screens too.
As per last time, the collection features new cover artwork by legendary Aussie poster and album cover artist Ian McCausland, detailed liner notes and some great images.
To be released Feb 24 and at the same unbelievable price as the first volume, THE GLORY DAYS OF AUSSIE PUB ROCK VOL.2 will be much anticipated by the legions of fans of classic Aussie Rock out there, and an instant party starter for anyone who trod the sticky carpet and inhaled the sweat, smoke and stale beer fumes back in the day.
Stay tuned for further announcements including the complete tracklisting.
THE GLORY DAYS OF AUSSIE PUB ROCK, VOLUME 2 is out on Festival Records through Warner Music Australia Feb 24.
