Mark Opitz and the inside story of making the great albums of Oz rock.

The producer of such iconic albums as Cold Chisel s East, The Angels Face to Face, INXS Shabooh Shoobah and Jimmy Barnes Bodyswerve, Opitz is one of the most influential figures in the history of Oz Rock.

Filled with frequently hilarious, sometimes poignant, anecdotes about Mark s experiences recording with Australia s rock greats,
