Volume 5 of Sony's Australian Pop Series - the most comprehensive series of Australian Chart hit records ever assembled - is now back! Again, carefully selected by compilation producer Brent James, Volume 5 brings together more all-time Aussie Classics and rare titles representing the three decades 60s,70s and 80s - arguably our most creative and formative years for Australian music - containing seldom reissued titles or in many cases never before issued on CD.
As with the earlier four volumes in the series, again all three sets contain extensive liner notes penned by Brent James with an all-State Chart performance. The series features original hit versions, mastered from the best possible sources with many titles remastered from the original studio tapes for this release.
A showcase of titles requested for this series, and often hard to come by - such as The Venetians, Christie Allen (with her often overshadowed UK made "Baby Get Away") and Girl Overboard. The set also features classics from Matt Finish, The Saints, The Church, Machinations, Kids In The Kitchen and Indecent Obsession and many more.
