RELEASE DATE: 30th October, 2015
Subtitled ’40 Years of ‘Hooks Hysteria!’, this super-deluxe 3cd set looks back at the year 1975, when Skyhooks were the biggest thing to hit Australia since the Beatles a decade earlier!
DON'T YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU'VE SEEN OR YOU'VE HEARD includes Skyhooks’ first two albums ‘Living In The ‘70s’ (released in October 74, but it spent much of the first half of ’75 atop the charts) and ‘Ego Is Not A Dirty word’ (released mid- ’75) – each remastered (by Greg Macainsh and David Briggs) from original tapes and augmented by original b-sides and a good number of unreleased demos. The third disc is something we’re calling ‘Skyhooks In Concert -1974-75’; it features 14 previously unreleased live tracks from such legendary Skyhooks concerts as the Sydney Opera house in ’74 and the State Theatre in Sydney and Festival Hall in Melbourne in ’75.
In addition to the 44 tracks, the set features a deluxe 8-panel digipak, a classy o-card, and a 36 page booklet with numerous never-before seen images and an insightful new essay from former RAM magazine editor and Skyhooks confidant Anthony O’Grady.
