Founded in Australia, rock band Fraternity will forever be associated with their lead singer, Bon Scott, who would later join AC/DC and enjoy worldwide fame. However, Scott's tenure with Fraternity has been poorly documented on the reissue market.

Of the two albums the band had issued at the time, Livestock and Flaming Galah, neither album has been released officially. And their story has never been told accurately... Half a century later, Seasons Of Change finally seeks to amend this oversight. Curated in conjunction with surviving band members (Bruce Howe, John Freeman, Sam See, John Bisset, Uncle John Eyers and the Estate of Mick Jurd) and their original manager Hamish Henry, this 3-CD set seeks to offer the complete recorded output of Fraternity, including both their albums from 1971-72 (originally issued on Sweet Peach and RCA respectively), utilizing the original master tapes and best possible remastering sources, adding all relevant non-albums singles A's and B's and EP tracks.

Bonus tracks feature Fraternity backing The Valentines' Vince Lovegrove and their victory at the National Battle Of The Sounds competition where they claimed the title of Australia's No. 1 band. In addition, research by Victor Marshall for this package uncovered the long-lost Hamish Henry cache of session tapes which have been curated into Fraternity's third album Second Chance. Second Chance also features live tracks recorded at PT Lincoln, South Australia as part of their historic Country Arts Tour and unheard songs including vocals and song writing contributions from Bon Scott.
