Before he found his way into AC/DC in 1974, Bon had been the lead vocalist with two leading Australian bands. The first, dispensing crisp bubble-pop, was The Valentines. The second, turning out expansive, intriguing, underground 'head' music on one hand & hard-rockin' boogie on the other, was Fraternity. With Fraternity, Bon toured Australia & Britain, & recorded two albums & a handful of small-run indie label singles. He also went through the experiences which would shape his attitude & performances in AC/DC (and supply him with the content of a number of his early songwriting efforts for that band). His highly distinctive vocal approach set Fraternity apart as one of the most powerful & acclaimed musical units to emerge from the lower continent in the early 1970s. A handful of Fraternity tracks have been released on Scott history CDs but the bulk of the band's output has long been out of

"Most of the songs on this complete sessions collection were also on an excellent album called Livestock. Taken as a group, they show good range of both music and emotion, from trippy and expansive orchestral moments to earthy and melodic gems. One of the songs with a chorus of "Young Farmers Festival" would simply not leave my head, the tune was so catchy, but it is the deeper tracks and contemplations which are the real attraction here. "The Race" at times has a bluesy feel, but it eases into a beat which is far from sad. "Summerville" has a tight strut and swagger to it which Bon would later refine, while tracks like "Jupiter's Landscape" and "Grand Canyon Suites" are wide and symphonic. Listeners will find impressive range here, and they need not be a fan of Bon to appreciate it. AC/DC fans looking to uncover hard rock nuggets will not find them here, but I also don't think they will be disappointed. *As a side note, I remember a very early AC/DC song that only came on a special edition record years ago. It was called "Love Story" or something, with Bon gently crooning the chorus, "Oh Jean...". Looking back on it, I realize it was a real bridge between the music of Bon with Fraternity, and his many memorable AC/DC compositions."
