There's lots of gossip and name-dropping in the book and, of course, this makes for a tasty read. When Geoff first suggested he was going to write an autobiography, I admit I groaned a little thinking, ‘Is there enough meat on the bone?’ l hereby eat my words. The book is a delight to read.
Geoff has a conversational style, which brings his stories, his characters and history alive, and above all, it has a warmth that makes you feel comfortable. He brings the reader into his world.

This book is a valuable addition to the literature; so little has been written about the early days of "pop" recordings and the goings on of the industry in Australia. It should prove very useful as a reference tool to researchers. So much of popular music is transitory, popular groups are famous one minute and then gone the next. However, with a book like this, the reader is able to flesh out the missing gaps in the popular literature, which focuses on the stars, and little about how they came to be so, or the industry behind their success.
It's a very interesting read and highly recommended from this reader!

The book is entertaining and has lots of great stories and insights. It was interesting to read about how the music industry changed and adapted as new technology became available.
When my son was a student at the Conservatorium High School, he was one of the many who had the privilege of being recorded singing Berlioz's Requiem - the author's first CD on his own Walsingham label - so that was a fascinating part of the book for me.
I think lovers of music will find this book a fun read and recommend it unreservedly.
