Mackenzie Theory. Olinda Golf Course, Melbourne, 1973.
Copyright All Rights Reserved Graeme Webber.
My first album cover, and I believe Mushroom's 2nd (Mackenzie Theory appeared on the Mushroom debut 1973 Sunbury triple album).
The picture was taken at Olinda Golf Course, (on Mt Dandenong), at dusk.
The expedition up there was like something out of the Keystone Cops, and when we finally arrived the sun was almost down and fog was rolling in. The band raced out onto the golf course, and I just had time to crank off half a dozen frames, then we all went home.
Luckily for me the infra red film turned everything ethereal and blue, because the album was called 'Out Of The Blue'.
Rob Mackenzie reckons the only thing he likes about the album is the cover. (Marks really hard, does Rob!)
