Post 645 - Ted Mulry - Falling In Love Again LP

Ted Mulry first came to the attention of the music industry when he sent a demo of some of his own compositions to Albert Productions in Sydney. The company persuaded him to become a recording artist and he soon rose to fame as a solo singer/songwriter with his own composition, the pop ballad "Julia", which made the Australian charts in 1970. He followed that with "Falling in Love Again", a song by The Easybeats song writing team Harry Vanda & George Young, which was a major hit in 1971.
Mulry was a prolific songwriter, and a number of bands and artists, including John Farnham and Alison MacCallum, recorded his songs. Most notably, rock band Sherbet had a hit with his song, "You're All Woman". He travelled to England in 1972 and recorded a single there under the name Steve Ryder (which can be found on Post # 528) but returned to Australia soon after. During his time as a solo artist he released two albums, “Falling in Love Again” (APLP-001) and “I Won't Look Back” IN 1973. After getting tired of being backed by different backing bands, in 1972 he switched from acoustic guitar to bass and formed his own band, Ted Mulry Gang, with guitarist Les Hall & drummer Herman Kovac. The band signed a recording deal with Albert Productions in 1974 and released their first album “Here We Are”. When that album didn't do as well as expected, the record company wanted Ted to go back to singing solo. Ronnie Clayton told them to stick to it and brought in second guitarist Gary Dixon to complete the foursome.  With his own band behind him he adopted a more hard rocking style. Sadly we lost Ted to brain cancer on September the 1st in Sydney, one day shy of his 54th birthday. Here to download is his first LP for Alberts from 1971.Flac
