It’s a Long Way captures the Golden Age of Australian music - 1969 to 1979.

As chief photographer for music magazine Go-Set, Philip Morris was in the best possible position to shoot the many stars of the era, including such local heroes as AC/DC, Billy Thorpe, the Angels and Johnny O’Keefe, along with international visitors like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa and numerous others. Philip was able to document these legendary performers intimately, from close range, with the type of all-areas access that is unheard of today.

About the Author

Jeff Apter, author of the bestselling Shirl, Together Alone and A Little Bird Told Me, charts the rollercoaster ride of these and other legendary expats during Up from Down Under. From the top of the charts to the depths of addiction, from New York's gay bathhouses to centrestage at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, all the way to Gotye's recent Grammy-winning glory, these wild and sometimes unlikely journeys prove one thing to be true: it really is a long way to the top.
