Post 279 - The Best Of Whisky A Go Go - Autumn & Barrie McAskill with Levi Smith’s Clefs

Autumn were regulars at Sydney's legendary Whisky A-Go-Go nightclub in Kings Cross. Around the time that their album came out, Autumn was also featured on one side of a Chart EP shared with Barrie McAskill with Levi Smith's Clefs, called "The Best of Whisky A-Go-Go". The Autumn tracks were "Day Tripper" and "By The Time I get to Phoenix", both of which were also included on their LP "Song To Raymondo". This rare EP is now a very valuable item, and copies in top condition fetch around $200 on the collector's market! Here to download is that EP "The Best Of Whisky A Go Go" (CHX-11,744) on Chart Records in 1970 and engineered by Richard Batchens. I recently found this EP to buy, but thanks to Peter who had it in his collection, I have now saved $135.00, and I'm sure Mrs. Ozzie thanks him more.

What a fantastic post and a lost treasure.
Really enjoyed listening to this, and warrants its' very own CD reproduction (even if it is only 4 tracks)
Many thanks to you and Peter
