Vanda & Young

Much to my surprise, I recently found a book about the Australian musical legends Harry Vanda and George Young – the men behind The Easybeats, Flash & The Pan, the original producers of AC/DC etc.  The book is “Vanda & Young – Inside Australia’s Hit Factory” by John Tait.

No, this isn’t everything, but it’s what I have been able to locate.  I only have a few 45’s on The Easybeats and I do not own any AC/DC records (I did see them live once, when I was an usher at the Long Beach Arena).

I’ll be reading this book this week, and I’ll report any unusual info!
