In A Broken Dream

by

Python Lee Jackson



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Disc jockey John Peel had signed this Australian studio group to his Dandelion record label, but they were having problems with the vocals so they drafted in Rod Stewart to sing a guide vocal. They were so pleased they kept his vocals on the final version and Rod Stewart was paid a set of seat covers for his car for doing the demo. Although it flopped upon its initial 1970 release, it was re-released two years later after the success of "Maggie May" and became a worldwide hit. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)
