The 100 Best Australian Albums from the Author: John O'Donnell. Australian music has a proud, colourful and successful history. In 2008, Australian rock and roll turned 50. This book names the best Australian albums of the last 50 years. It places each album in order (from 1 u 100) and discusses why each album deserves its place. It tells the story behind the making of the album, where the album fits in the artist's career and the album's impact on the local and world stage etc. The entries will feature new interviews with the artists and the producers/managers involved in the recording and the release of the album. It wouldn't be a good list if it didn't polarise people and we hope that this list will. We also hope that it will get people sitting around comparing their favourites and discovering or re-discovering these great albums and others. With 70 years of loving and writing about Australian music between us, we shamelessly believe we've earned the right to write this book. And we think we've got it right. Let the debate begin.o u John O'Donnell, April 2010 Finally, here is a much-needed list of argument-starting top 100 seminal/ influential/essential Australian albums of all time. Let the fight begin!

Ac Dc The Early Years Bon Scott from the Author: Neil Daniels. Often regarded as the greatest frontman in the history of rock music, Bon Scott tragically died on February 19, 1980 but his memory lives through the music he created with AC/DC. From 1975 s Australian album High Voltage to 1980 s Highway To Hell, Bon Scott and AC/DC were a global force to be reckoned with. AC/DC formed in 1973 but it wasn’t until the latter half of 1974 that Scottish born singer Robert Belford Scott joined the fold. Scott would help take AC/DC to legendary heights of success. Although the band s success did not arrive quickly, they released a stream of stunning albums and were undoubtedly the most electrifying live rock band of the 1970s. Despite the latterday success of the band, the Bon Scott years of 1974 to 1980 are often regarded by many as the band s most fertile creative period. Those years spawned 1976 s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, 1977 s Let There Be Rock and 1978 s Powerage, not forgetting the now legendary live album, If You Want Blood You’ve Got It from 1978. Exploring the two Australian albums, the five international studio albums as well as other releases featuring Bon Scott, this book AC/DC - The Early Years With Bon Scott is a fitting recognition of Bon Scott s legacy and a reminder of just how influential AC/DC s 1970s period remains. Charts the most creative period of the band s history from 1973 to Bon Scott s death in 1980. Includes a foreword from Uriah Heep’s Mick Box. Bonus chapter on Back In Black: the first album with Brian Johnson. Extensively covers AC/DC s five international albums and two Australia-only releases with Bon Scott. Perfect as a fans book as well as a book for AC/DC beginners. Bon Scott was voted the greatest frontman of all time by Classic Rock magazine. The most successful Aussie band of all time. A movie about Bon Scott s life is currently in production.

Global Glam And Popular Music from the Author: Ian Chapman. This book is the first to explore style and spectacle in glam popular music performance from the 1970s to the present day, and from an international perspective. Focus is given to a number of representative artists, bands, and movements, as well as national, regional, and cultural contexts from around the globe. Approaching glam music performance and style broadly, and using the glam/glitter rock genre of the early 1970s as a foundation for case studies and comparisons, the volume engages with subjects that help in defining the glam phenomenon in its many manifestations and contexts. Glam rock, in its original, term-defining inception, had its birth in the UK in 1970/71, and featured at its forefront acts such as David Bowie, T. Rex, Slade, and Roxy Music. Termed "glitter rock" in the US, stateside artists included Alice Cooper, Suzi Quatro, The New York Dolls, and Kiss. In a global context, glam is represented in many other cultures, where the influences of early glam rock can be seen clearly. In this book, glam exists at the intersections of glam rock and other styles (e.g., punk, metal, disco, goth). Its performers are characterized by their flamboyant and theatrical appearance (clothes, costumes, makeup, hairstyles), they often challenge gender stereotypes and sexuality (androgyny), and they create spectacle in popular music performance, fandom, and fashion. The essays in this collection comprise theoretically-informed contributions that address the diversity of the world’s popular music via artists, bands, and movements, with special attention given to the ways glam has been influential not only as a music genre, but also in fashion, design, and other visual culture.

Australia Rocks from the Author: Lucy Desoto. Australian rock music has a rich history of performers and bands that have created not just the soundtrack for Australian lives but have also shaped the international music scene. In the early days of the 1950s and ‘60s, Australian rock saw performers like Johnny O’Keefe and The Easybeats. The 1970s saw Cold Chisel and AC/DC, among others, performing to packed halls locally. AC/DC turned this into international success, blasting through three decades of touring and performing. However, it was only in the 1980s and 1990s that Australian rock truly made its mark on the international stage with iconic bands such as Men at Work, Midnight Oil and INXS. Australia Rocks brings the bands and the times to life through unique photographs and evocative text. Written by a rock musician, it also goes beyond the ‘big names’ to highlight the many independent, often lesser-known performers who played such an integral part in shaping the industry, and shines a light on how rock music was not only influenced by global events (the Vietnam War, for example) but also formed part of enormous cultural shifts (the Swinging Sixties, the protest movement, etc). From the demure dance halls of the 1950s to the smoke-filled pubs of the 1970s and the packed concerts of the 1990s and beyond, Australia Rocks will have music lovers dusting off their vinyl collection and remembering the good times.

The Challenger Sale from the Author: Matthew Dixon. Gibt es ein Rezept fĂŒr Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten FĂŒhrungskrĂ€fte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten VerkĂ€ufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primĂ€r die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und LĂ€ndern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der SpitzenverkĂ€ufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklĂ€ren, wie fast jeder VerkĂ€ufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verĂ€ndern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
