‘The Swing’ & ‘Kick’ make the new ’100 Best Australian Albums’ Book« Wired 1988 interview & live footage | ‘Original Sin’ (Live Version) featured on Richard Wilkins Presents: 38 More Smash Hits of the 80′s CD »
The 100 Best Australian Albums is a new book compiled and written by John O’Donnell (former music editor of Rolling Stone Australia and CEO of EMI Australasia), Toby Creswell (former editor of Rolling Stone Australia and author of Too Much Ain’t Enough and The Real Thing: Adventures in Australian Rock N Roll – 1957-Now) and Craig Mathieson (author of Hi-Fi Ways and The Sell-In) and is to be released via Hardie Grant on October 27, 2010. A 5-CD set will also be released the same day.
As the name suggests, the book lists the 100 best Australian albums of the rock & roll/pop era – the albums that have had the greatest influence on the musical fabric of our country.
Two INXS albums featuring Michael Hutchence made the book with 'The Swing' and 'Kick'.
Back in 1994, a list of the top 100 was also put together for the 'Real Wild Child' Australian Music Expo. That list was compiled by Toby Creswell, Peter Cox and John O'Brien. It ranked Max Q as the 13th best Australian album of all time, with INXS 'Kick' album at #41.
