Die Aufnahme von "Friday On My Mind" stammt aus dem Beat Club Silvester-Special vom 31.12.1966.

British Invasion from Downunder: Easyfever - so nannte man die australische Variante der Beatlemania, damals ausgelöst durch die Easybeats! Mit "Friday On My Mind" landeten sie den ersten internationalen Hit für eine australische Band. Jahre später sollten die beiden Gitarristen der Band, George Young und Henry Vanda, ein erfolgreiches Produzententeam bilden. Auf ihr Konto gehen u. a. die ersten sieben Alben von AC/ DC (George Young ist der ältere Bruder von Malcom und Angus Young). Und nicht zu vergessen ihre eigene Popband Flash & The Pan, die in den 80er Jahre große Erfolge feierte.

You may think that British Invasion or Beat Music were typically British phenomena? No, they weren't ... Actually Australia got their own Beatlemania - here called "Easyfever" as a result of The Easybeats! The Easybeats were the greatest Australian pop band in the 60s and scored the first international hit for an Australian band with the song "Friday On my Mind". Later the two guitarists, George Young and Henry Vanda, became a famous songwriter and producer duo. Their work includes the first seven albums of AC/DC - featuring George's younger brothers Angus and Malcolm Young! And don't forget their 80s pop group Flash & the Pan with the hits "Early Morning Wake Up Call" an "Midnight Man".
