In A Broken Dream

I mentioned Australian band Python Lee Jackson in a recent post about the Nice.
Despite the band’€™s origins the voice doing the singing here is unmistakable – and not Australian. There are varying accounts of how Rod Stewart came to do the vocal on this track.

In A Broken Dream was, I believe, the first single – as opposed to EP (ask your Mum or Dad; or even your Grandad) – in the UK to have a picture sleeve. Prior to that each label had its own generic sleeve with a circular cut out so that you could see the label, song title, artist, composer, lyricist and copyright info printed on the label. These would have a lower unit cost as they were used for every single the label put out.

You Tube has this listed under Rod Stewart, despite the fact it wasn’€™t released under his name. I had heard Rod no longer wished to be associated with this track and hounded unmercifully those who referred to it.

Blame You Tube, Rod, not me.
