Easybeats its 2 easy - The Easybeats | Biography & History | AllMusic

In the midst of this maelstrom, George uncovered an unfinished Easybeats track from 1968, inspired by the group's American tour supporting Gene Pitney (they had gone out with the Rolling Stones in Europe). Hey St. Peter , issued under the alias of Flash & the Pan, shot up the charts and gave George Young an opportunity to use his near spoken-voice vocals, which found favour in the new wave and dance club environment. This part-time group became a full-time European sensation, issuing a string of compelling albums and becoming more successful than the Easybeats had been in that part of the world. Standing in the Rain gave Grace Jones a hit that burst out of the dance floors of the continent (just as some of John Paul Young's hits did, such as Walking in the Rain ). When the Bay City Rollers had the word's teens in a state of frenzy one of the songs they were doing it with was Yesterday's Hero .

The band decided to call it quits following a return to Australia for one final tour, after which Harry Vanda and George Young became full-time songwriter/producers, helped organize AC/DC (featuring Young 's siblings Angus Young and Malcolm Young ), and generated the 1973 hit "Evie" for Stevie Wright . Their string of successes has stretched into the new century -- "Friday on My Mind" remains in print in dozens of editions throughout the world, as recorded by the Easybeats and others; and in 2001, their late '70s disco hit "Love Is in the Air" (primarily associated with John Paul Young ), was licensed for use in two different commercials for two separate products (a car and a credit card) running simultaneously on American television. Meanwhile, the Easybeats' complete output has been issued on CD through the Repertoire label (making their 1965-1966 Australian sides widely available around the world for the first time), and anthologies of their work are in print in England and America. Such was the demand for their music in the late 1990s, that Australia's Raven Records has also issued Live, Studio and Stage , the first full-length collection of live recordings by the group, assembled from across their history.
