Pack of Talent on Dollar Hunt
22 Jun 1978
Show scene – Leslie Falkiner
AUSTRALIA has been blessed with a flood of overseas talent this year… a deluge of artists and the money seeps away.
If there had been just a few top drawcards one might have believed that the artists toured for the love of it. But after ELO, Bob Dylan, Boz Scaggs, The Beach Boys, Chick Corea, James Brown, Leo Sayer, Billy Joel, Leo Kottke, Ry Cooder, Joan Armatrading, with Meat Loaf and The Byrds now playing and Chuck Berry and Weather Report on the near horizon, one gets a little cynical about their motives.
