Background[edit]

Impresario Michael Gudinski and fellow music agent Ray Evans formed Mushroom Records in late 1972.[1] Their first album was an ambitious triple-LP live recording of the 1973 Sunbury Pop Festival.[1] In its first few years Mushroom released albums and singles by some of the most significant Australian rock acts of the period, including Madder Lake, Chain, The Dingoes and Skyhooks.[1] Success with Skyhooks' first few albums followed by Split Enz, Models, INXS, Kylie Minogue and Jimmy Barnes enabled Mushroom to dominate the Australian music industry into the 1990s.[1] In 1982, Mushroom Records celebrated its tenth anniversary by running the Mushroom Evolution Concert which was released as a tripel live album and a releated VHS. Gudinski sold 49% of his interests in Mushroom Records to rival Festival Records then owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation in 1993 for a reputed $22 million.[2] Gudinski decided to celebrate Mushroom Records' 25th Anniversary with a concert held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 14 November 1998. The concert featured former Cold Chisel singer Jimmy Barnes guesting with INXS on "The Loved One" and "Good Times" in tribute of Michael Hutchence for their first public performance since his death.[3] Kylie Minogue leapt from a birthday cake and performed a medley of 13 songs.[2] A month later the album, Mushroom 25 Live was released on CD. Less than a year later, Gudinski sold the remaining 51% to News Corporation's James Murdoch for a reputed $40 million,[2] and it was merged with Festival Records to form Festival Mushroom Records. By 2002, Gudinski's Liberation Blue Records re-released the concert both on audio as a 2xCD and video as a 2xDVD set.
