Men At Work Rarities
This track is the original 1979 "B" side version of Downunder from Men At Work's first single.
The "A" side was a track called Keypunch Operator. I am still searching for a decent copy of both of these tracks.
It was an independant release by the band on 7 inch vinyl and is an extremely rare recording that was only ever available in a limited quantity.
The hugely popular version of the song from the Business As Usual album, released in 1981 was quite different.
This is a vinyl rip and is unfortunately only in 128k format.
*** Added 18th December... I have located a copy of Keypunch Operator today but it is only in 96k format. I am still searching for high quality copies of both sides of this rare single.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Men At Work's origins.
