(Vanda and Young - The voodoo they do so well)

Last night I mentioned one of the members of Grapefruit actually being the younger brother of George Young. When Grapefruit dissolved, Young took off for Australia to work with his brother on a new project.

The project became The Marcus Hook Roll Band. You could sort of call this the mid-point between The Easybeats and AC/DC - but definitely a link. The Vanda-Young team were on a roll.

Marcus Hook only last a little over two years (something about bands lasting two years . . ), releasing numerous singles and an album, which finally came out in the States via Capitol in 1974.

This track, issued in 1972 was "Natural Man". It did well in Australia and moderately well in Europe and the UK, but did nothing in the States, as did their album.

It was probably because of that a re-group and reinvention took place and what emerged was the winning combination.

And of course, nobody ever looked back.
