Default In A Broken Dream (think)


When was this first released? Python Lee Jackson

I know it was recorded in '68, and was a hit in '72 in both the US and the UK,
but I think it was first released earlier.

Default In A Broken Dream (think singer)


Ah, Python Lee Jackson. Harking back to my recent topic of names that
made me wonder if they were groups or individuals - Is Python Lee Stewart:

A. Rod Stewart under a different name?
B. A person named (or at least stage-named, because I think a python is
some kind of snake) Python Lee Jackson who sounds like Rod Stewart?
C. A group for which Rod Stewart sang lead?
D. A group with a lead singer who sounds a lot like Rod Stewart?

I was not familiar with this song when it was a current release, but I
have it on some compilation, probably in the Rhino "Have a Nice Day" series.

A is correct. According to his liner notes for the Storyteller boxed
set, he recorded the song as a demo for a friend who intended it for
another artist, then was surprised to see it issued commercially a few
years later after he became a huge star.

According to Joel Whitburn Rod sings lead on three of the songs on the "In A
Broken Dream" album. The group is listed as an Australian Rock Quartet.

I asume this means that it was first released in 1972?

Maybe Greg would know if it came out earlier than 1972 in Australia.

I don't know. I just looked for my copy of the album, which I think is an
Aussie pressing. But it wasn't filed under "Python" or "Jackson" or
"Stewart", so who knows where it has strayed?

Default In A Broken Dream (singer)


Well, kind of. The group was Australian, and a vehicle for
pianist/singer/songwriter David Bentley. They were recording some demo
tracks in London, and the producer (whose name escapes me) thought that the
song "In A Broken Dream" was worth further investigation, and got Rod
Stewart in to sing lead on the demo. In the same sessions he also recorded
"The Blues" (pretty much a re-hash of "Rock Me Baby") and a cover (sic) of
the Temptations' "Cloud Nine" (which was pretty good, actually).

With Rod's later celebrity, the tracks were dusted off and reissued in
various forms - the three Rod vocals plus a bunch of other songs with
Bentley singing. The album has been out on CD several times, and it's OK.

But it was titled "Doin Fine" and writing credit goes to "D. Bently". It was
the "B" side of "In A Broken Dream".

Not in the UK it wasn't. The B-side of "Dream" here was Bentley's "Boogie
Woogie Joe". On the album (which only came out much later, possibly on CD
only) "Cloud Nine" was credited correctly.
