What was the First Australian Rock 'n' Roll Record?

Clinton Walker, Meanjin, 2006

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Extracted from the Meanjin Anthology, edited by Sally Heath and published by Melbourne University Press in 2012, after it was first published in Meanjin magazine in 2006 – when, I would contend, it was the first piece to seriously try and address this burning question.

Total word count of piece: 7982
