The Mersey Beat

Hailing originally from Liverpool, we arrive in Australia in the early 1970s. A week after our arrival our new neighbours, another family from Liverpool moved in. From day one we knew our Australian stories would be entwined. Their middle daughter was my age and we’ve been best friends from day 1 – but our love for music from home never wavered, this is one of the first albums we bought together – the album sleeve is faded and tatty but the memories are still crystal clear.
