Post 558 - Tony Savage Band – Bye Bye Bluebird – Faster Than Lightning

This may well be my shortest notes on the Blog by far. Being a Vanda & Young composition I thought there would be something out there on this band but nothing, they appear in only one of my books and all it gives you is the name of the band and the song title well really not even that because the books says the song was Bye Bye Love, a big typo for sure. I haven’t even come across this label before “Living Sound “. The producer is Tony Savage and engineer Peter Hood and the single recorded in 1977 with Tony writing the B side. No band members no nothing. So enjoy these rare tracks “Bye Bye Bluebird” b/w “Faster Than Lightning” (LS-102901), I’d say until I find out different this was the only record released by this band.    mp3

A group called Australia issued their LP called Maiden Australia on the Living Sound label in 1976.

Hey brother

I wonder if this could have been recorded by this guy while on tour in Australia:

Actually, further to my last comment, I have just remembered where I saw this before.

Robin Wills posted it on his PurePop blog a few years ago.

He also had no info on the elusive Tony Savage, but a few comments appeared to offer some hope but fizzled out into nothing.
