About this Item

SIGNED in full by author Peter Wilmoth in green ink on title page. Foreword by Red Symons. Illustrated with b&w photographs. Contains uncommon classic photos of Molly Meldrum & the Countdown set, Queen, Hush, John St Peters, John Paul Young, Little River Band, Gary Glitter, Daryl Braithwaite, Cheetah, Skyhooks, Ted Mulry Gang, AC/DC, The Easybeats, William Shakespeare, Stars, Smokie, & Buck's Fizz, amongst several others. Includes sources, plus references. "When Countdown first went to air in 1974 it instantly became a neat distillation of everything that mattered musically, a cultural Petri dish around which swam the most beautiful, ugly, energetic, has-been, is-going-to-be, misjudged, well timed, talented, meritless, superb musical specimens of our age. But Countdown was more than just a TV show - it was the cultural backdrop for the generation of Australians that grew up in that gruesome era, the seventies. Glad All Over dares to look back at one of the wildest and most influential products of Australian Television." Front cover features a colour photograph of host Ian 'Molly' Meldrum and singer Peter Frampton on the Countdown set. First printing, with "1" as the lowest number in print number line on copyright page. Printed in Australia. Slight handling wear, otherwise a nice clean tight solid softcover copy. 249pp. Scarce title, rare signed copy. SB-131. Size: 21 x 15cm. Bookseller Inventory # 009725
