WAKE UP AUSTRALIA - BOOTLEG FAMILY BAND
WAKE UP AUSTRALIA 1973
A minor hit from late 1973 WAKE UP AUSTRALIA has not been released on CD but this version is close enough to CD quality as you'll get. Brian Cadd and the Bootleg Family Band released this single as a follow-up the their big #5 hit of early 1973 Your Mama Don't Dance. Their next big single was The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss) in 1974 which reached #10. Green Door reached #98 in 1975 and their last hit was #60 How Do I Try in late 1975. By this stage Brian Cadd departed for the USA where he continued to write music for other artists. WAKE UP AUSTRALIA featured on the K-Tel album Super Bad. It is fondly remembered by those who lived through the political turmoil leading up to Gough Whitlam's election and sacking.
