Easy Come Easy Go with The Easybeats captures one of Australia’s most celebrated music sensations as they boldly venture abroad in 1967 to record ‘Heaven and Hell’ at the famous Olympic Studios in London.

With guest appearances from engineer Glyn Johns, manager Mike Vaughan and featuring many of their classics: ‘Wedding Ring’, ‘She’s So Fine’, ‘Saturday Night’, ‘Who’ll Be The One’, ‘Heaven and Hell’, ‘Friday On My Mind’ and a Scottish themed ‘Loch Lomond’, Easy Come Easy Go with The Easybeats is an upbeat rock’n’roll road trip.
