- Rose Tattoo 'Street Fighting Man' includes archival footage of the band
‘Good Times: Celebrating 50 Years of Albert Productions’ Released Today!
Posted on 15 Aug 2014
In celebration of today’s release of ‘Good Times: Celebrating 50 Years Of Albert Productions’ 5 disc box set, Alberts is thrilled to be sharing archival footage of Rose Tattoo.
The rare footage from one of Albert Productions’ jewel acts has been assembled to create an online video for the release of Street Fighting Man as part of the Good Times package - celebrating 50 years of the iconic and respected Australian independent label.
Discovered from the Alberts Archives, the footage is taken from a Paris, France performance filmed in the early’80s and from Rose Tattoo’s performance at one of Sydney’s gaols in the late ’70s.
Rose Tattoo’s interpretation of the Jagger and Richards classic (a staple at Tatts live gigs) is one of 2 previously unreleased tracks on the 102-track Good Times: Celebrating 50 Years Of Albert Productions compilation. This very exciting package with a 48-page coloured booklet with extensive liner notes and photos is released today to celebrate Albert Productions’ milestone year.
Launched in 1964, Albert Productions is the recording arm of the 129-year-old music company J. Albert & Son and has been a vital force in Australian music for 50 years. The label, unlike any other in Australia, is the result of one man’s love of rock and roll. Ted Albert, then MD of Alberts (and a fourth-generation Albert), decided after witnessing local teenagers high on surf culture and ‘Beatlemania’ that his family business should become involved in music production and build a worthy record label with a catalogue of Australian songs and artists.
