Post 386 - Billy Miller & The Great Blokes - Perpetual Motion / Perpetual Motion (Extended)

Billy Miller is an Australian musician who started singing and playing guitar back in the 1960s. After a 3 year stint in the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar, he formed The Ferrets, who in 1977 had a no 1 hit "Don't Fall In Love". Between 1979-1982 he performed as Billy Miller & The Great Blokes and only released one single for Mushroom Records here for you to download. The single "Perpetual motion" b/w "Perpetual Motion (Extended)" was penned by Billy. It was produced by John French & Trevor Countney. The only other song that I know of by this band is a track on the "Mushroom Evolution Concert" "She Took My Heart" which is a great song, I only wish that they did a studio version of this song.

Loved The Ferrets, but I don't think I've ever heard this song.

Thank you for the opportunity

Thanks from me also Ozzie's - always thought Miller was a terrific song writer with a great stage presence, yet never got the recognition he deserved. Looking forward to hearing this 'rarity'
