Good Friday is a studio album by The Easybeats, released in May 1967. It was the first album released after the band signed an international recording deal with United Artists Records. The original UK album was released in May 1967. Although "Friday on My Mind" was a big single in the UK, the album failed to make the top 40.
Due to contractual issues, there was no official album release of this material in the band's home country of Australia. The songs "Friday on My Mind", "Made My Bed, Gonna Lie in It" and "Pretty Girl" were released on the greatest hits package The Best of The Easybeats + Pretty Girl, while other songs would appear on various EP's. The UK version was later reissued by Repertoire Records (but re-titled Friday on My Mind like the US release) and featured twelve bonus tracks.
On April 16, 2016, the mono version of the album was re-released on vinyl by Varèse Sarabande as an exclusive for Record Store Day.

The North American version was re-titled Friday On My Mind and also issued in the same month with a different album cover and running order from the UK release. This version omitted "Hound Dog" and replaced it with "Women" (re-titled "Make You Feel Alright (Women)") from the It's 2 Easy album. The US version has never appeared on CD.The Easybeats
