Description:
In the 1960's Australian Rock & Roll singles were as good as those made anywhere in the World.

Recording technology being still quite primitive - all 45's were still in mono - there was no difference in sound quality between our singles and those from the UK and USA.

We had many exciting singers and our musicians could hold their own with anyone.

On the local charts Australian acts vied with overseas hits and had no problem competing with the best the world had to offer.

Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs' "Poison Ivy" even knocked the Beatles off the top of the charts when the Fab Four were touring here in 1964! John Lennon was so amazed he asked to meet Thorpe in person. This book attempts, for the task can only be attempted, to list the best 100 singles of that remarkable decade - the Sixties - by Australian artists. Australia had embraced Rock & Roll from it's very beginning in the mid-1950's.
