Post 56 - Wendy Saddington – We Need A Song

In 1970 Billy Thorpe walked into the Thumping Tum in Melbourne to see this famous female blues singer that everyone was raving about. She was the lead singer of Beaten Tracks which had won a battle of the bands contest. The prize was a trip to Melbourne. That particular night a bond was formed between Thorpe, Saddington and her keyboard player Warren “The Pig” Morgan. This was not only the beginning of Saddington’s career, but the beginning of the Sunbury Aztecs. Saddington’s one and only single “Looking Through A Window” was released in September 1971and went to #22. It was backed with “We Need A Song”. Both tracks were produced and written by Warren “The Pig” Morgan and Billy Thorpe. Billy, although uncredited, also sang vocals on this B-Side track. “Looking Through A Window” was reissued in 1977 but did nothing on the charts. Here for you to download is the B-Side “We Need A Song” (INK-4308).
