Two Brian Cadd Classic Albums Released on CD for the First Time

Brian Cadd’s second and third albums ‘Parabrahm’ (1973) and ‘Moonshine’ (1974) have been released on CD for the very first time and with bonus tracks.

The two original albums now have an additional six songs with ‘Alvin Purple’, ‘Every Mothers Son’, Sometime Man’, ‘Boogie Queen’, ‘Class of 74’, Gimme Gimme Good Lovin’ expanding the CD offering.

‘Every Mothers Son’ was released as a single in-between the first solo album ‘Brian Cadd’. Brian was in high demand as a songwriter in the early 70s. ‘Alvin Purple’ was recorded as the theme to the hit movie starring Graeme Blundell and ‘Class of ‘74’ was the theme song for the TV soap opera.

Both albums generated their own hits with the single ‘Handy Man/Keep on Rockin’’ gracing the Australian chart of October, 1973 and ‘Let Go’ becoming a Top 10 hit in 1974.

‘Boogie Queen’ and ‘Gimme Gimme Good Love’ were both released as stand-alone singles after release of ‘Moonshine’ and before Brian’s next album two years later recorded while he was living in the USA.

‘Parabrahm’ and ‘Moonshine’ were released through Robert Rigby’s Ambition Entertainment Group’s Fanfare Records label. “These releases are the first in many more Heritage classic albums to be released,” Robert Rigby tells “We have always supported the long-standing musicians and singers in the industry with our label backing the likes of so many Heritage artists like Russell Morris, Jon English, Brian Cadd and Colleen Hewett and so many more. You could say that there are a lot of catalogue holes in the back catalogue from labels and Fanfare Records is filling the demand with some brilliant re-issues”.

Rigby also Brian’s latest album ‘Silver City’ through Fanfare Records.

All three albums are available through Songland Records.
