What’s that hoary old cliché? “If you can remember the Sixties you weren’t there!” Well forget that because this is a dream come true for every Sixties kid who can remember growing up loving Australian pop music. Aztec Records have excelled with The Go!! Records Complete Collection: I’ve Gone Wild!!, a superlative box set for fans and collectors of Sixties Australian pop.
The Go!! Records Complete Collection presents a massive 130 tracks on four jam-packed CDs – bringing together, for the first time, every track recorded for the legendary and collectable Go!! Records 1965-1967. Go!! Records was one of the original, truly independent Australian record companies, set up by the producers of the TV pop programme The Go!! Show in order to sign and promote releases by local artists who appeared on the show. There was a core group of acts that appeared on a regular basis, with the show also featuring many other major local pop stars of the day.
The Go!! label ran as a separate entity, from March 1965 to May 1967, issuing an impressive run of 54 singles, seven EPs and six LPs. The records covered everything from frantic beat pop and chiming classic pop to tough garage rock and jug band music. Many of the singles were hits which helped establish a number of significant acts... and what hits they were! ‘I Belong with You’, ‘Someone’ and ‘Judy Green’ by Bobby and Laurie, ‘Talkin’ ’Bout You’ by The Rondells, ‘Rockin’ Robin’ by The Henchmen, ‘It’s You’ by Terry Dean, ‘Slow Down Sandy’ by Billy Adams, ‘I’ve Been Trying’, ‘The Angels Listened In’, ‘Oh, Monah’ and ‘Minnie the Moocher’ by The Cherokees, ‘Little Boy Sad’, ‘Lonely Boy’ and ‘Remember (Walkin’ in the Sand)’ by M.P.D. Limited, ‘Midnight Bus’ by Betty McQuade, ‘Little People’ by Yvonne Barrett... they’re all here and more!!
If you want proof that Go!! Records was at the forefront of currents trends of the day, it’s worth noting that the dynamic duo of Bobby and Laurie captured the spirit of the Australian beat pop scene of the Sixties in all its foot-stomping, hand-clapping, mane-shaking, fun-loving glory, matching the likes of The Easybeats, Normie Rowe and Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs every step of the way. The Go!! Records Complete Collection is also a pertinent reminder that this is where Mike ‘Up There Cazaly’ Brady got his start, as a member of M.P.D. Limited.
It’s also been the more obscure records and bands on Go!! Records that have continued to keep interest in the label at a premium. Try ‘Rachael’ by 18th Century Quartet, ‘Take Me for a Little While’ by The Deakins, ‘Is this a Dream’ by The Chosen Few, ‘Without You’ by The Other Ends, ‘Love Me Girl’ by The Clique, ‘I Only Want to Be with You’ by Young Once and ‘Hey, Hey, Hey’ by The Bobby James Syndicate. As
an added bonus there are two previously unreleased demo tracks by Justin Anthony and the Impacts.
In recent years the Go!! brand has re-emerged with a successful series of Go!! Show Gold reunion concerts around the country. Now as if to bring things full circle Aztec Records have compiled the entire Go!! Records output for the massive The Go!! Records Complete Collection box set. Audio engineer extraordinaire Gil Matthews has remastered the entire collection – a whopping 130 tracks! – so sonically the music has taken on new life. All of which means that the fans can relive golden memories and enjoy the music with fresh purpose. It’s not all nostalgia because new listeners will immediately understand that music of this quality will never go out of style
