Living in the 70's - Vinyl
Skyhook's album 'Living in the 70's' was produced by Ross Wilson and released on vinyl. It became the best selling Australian album ever up to that time with over 240,000 copies sold. Skyhooks were a Melbourne band and were the first band to have commercial success writing about our streets, our suburbs and our lifestyle. Countdown had begun and film clips were emerging but the album cover sleeve and your record collection were still king.
