A set that's got a lot more than you'd expect from the title – not just the sort of homegrown rock tracks that played in the pubs in Sydney and Melbourne, but the kind of work that really saw Australian music explode onto the global scene too! The "pub rock" is well-placed – as most of these groups follow a similar pattern to the British movement with the same tag – kind of a back-to-basics approach that's post-glam, post-hard rock, with maybe some of the lean energy of the punk generation, but a sound that's a bit more mainstream overall. Still, given the obscurity of some of these tracks, the set's hardly commercial in comparison to American work of the time – and with a massive 91 tracks in all, there's a huge amount here to discover. Titles include "Cold Cold Change" by Midnight Oil, "Goodbye Astrid Goodbye" by Cold Chisel, "Take A Long Line" by The Angels, "Mighty Rock" by Stars, "Goodbye Jimmy" by Stiletto, "Living In The Land Of Oz
" by Ross Wilson, "Telephone Booth" by Ian Moss, "Run To Paradise" by Choirboys, "Natural Man" by Marcus Hook Roll Band, "Seeing Is Believing" by Paul Kelly & The Dogs, "Gimme Some Lovin" by Gangajang, "Computer Games" by Mi-Sex, "Products Of Your Mind" by Jimmy & The Boys, "Driving Wheels" by Jimmy Barnes, "Short Changed Again" by Finch, "Made My Day" by Tim Finn, "Bustin Loose" by Moving Pictures, and "Chained To The Wheel" by The Black Sorrows.
