Post 598 - Broken Chains - Sympathy - Super Natural

This was the only single release by Broken Chains and there are no band members listed or where they were from, my guess is Sydney. Their cover of U.K. band Rare Bird's "Sympathy" b/w "Super Natural" (TSP-716). The B side a rendition of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers "Super Natural" penned by Peter Green.Very little is known about the band though. I know they did play at some of the Jesus Music revival concerts in Sydney and Canberra (between 1971 & 1973). So there may be some connection with the Methodist Church who co-ordinated all of these events.Troubadour Records was an independent label based out of Balmain in Sydney. Mike Brady also recorded a superb version in 1970 which will be another post here very soon. Thanks to Matt Gleeson for the info here and as always here's hoping some band members/family or friends might enlighten us with some more info in the near future. mp3
