by Jane Albert
Hardback, 2010, 378pages, very good condition

Few, if any, of AC/DC's fans would have any idea that the band's unmistakeablebrand of raucous, hardcore rock was delivered to the world via a small Australianfamily music publishing business, J. Albert & Son. In fact, the lives of mostAustralians have been touched in some way by the Alberts, through sheetmusic, Boomerang Songsters, any number of radio stations owned by Albertsor bands and artists like the Easybeats, John Paul Young, Billy Thorpe and theAztecs, the Angels, Rose Tattoo and AC/DC. Who is behind this business thathas been quietly shaping and influencing Australia's musical landscape, culture,entertainment and media for most of its existence? Alberts had its beginnings asan unassuming watch and clock repair shop in suburban Sydney in 1885. Todayit is one of Australia's oldest family-owned and run businesses, which is now inits fifth generation of ownership. Yet few people have heard of the company,and know nothing of the family that still runs it, because the family has neverbefore agreed to have its story told. Until now. Jane Albert - herself a journalistand fifth generation family member - has had unprecedented access to companydocuments, family diaries, family members, letters and of course the vibrantgallery of Australian artists who have made Alberts the success it is today: Youngbrothers George, Malcolm and Angus, Harry Vanda, Stevie Wright, AngryAnderson, John Paul Young and music personalities Molly Meldrum and Michael Chugg.
