The Australian charts were dominated by British and American acts in the '60s, and The Easybeats were one of the few homegrown acts to become wildly popular in the country - by 1966 their concerts were packed with so many screaming girls that it drowned out the music. That year, they scored an international hit with "Friday On My Mind
," but were hampered by drugs and by problems with their business affairs, and never fully recovered. The follow-up single, "Hello, How are You," tanked and their next album took them in a more psychedelic direction. When "Good Times" appeared in 1968, it was a return to form, but by then the band had lost their momentum.
