Post 642 - Haley White With Mike Brady - Up There Cazaly '99

"Up There Cazaly" is 1979 song recorded and composed by Mike Brady. It is named after an Australian rules football catchphrase inspired by early 20th century St Kilda and South Melbourne great Roy Cazaly. It was used by teammate Fred "Skeeter" Fleiter and others when they wanted Cazaly to hit the ball clear of ruck contests. The song was intended as a promotion for Channel Seven's VFL coverage. The single, released on the independent Fable Records label, sold over 250,000 copies and became the largest-selling Australian single ever released up to that time. It has since become synonymous with Australian football, and has featured as the pre/post-match entertainment of many VFL/AFL Grand Finals. In 1999 Mike teamed up with Haley White to rerecord the hit once again, now I searched and searched but could not find anything else on Haley so I contacted Mike Brady and this is what he had to say...."Hayley White was just sixteen when she and I recorded a version of "Up There Cazaly" in '99. She had a manager and they worked hard on launching a career for her. I don't think it was particularly succesful but i,m sure she's still trying. I hope so. M." Here to download is that single released on Shock Records and produced by Doug & Mike Brady.Flac
