DOWNLOAD NO.212 - YOUR BRAIN HAS EARS - 2 MMM

Jimmy B. has supplied many songs for this blog. Recently we decided to have a day where he came to my place (a trip involving train, car and ferry) to record and repair many of his old vinyl singles. In his collection Jim has a very large set of Oz songs which have not made it to CD. This download is one of the many...

During the era when FM radio was coming into the Oz market there were a few stations that had station identification tracks done by big local artists and musos. One of these jingles was "Your Brain Has Ears" for radio station 2MMM-FM (2 Triple M) which charted in the lower reaches of the top 40.

As far as I know this was never released on a 7" vinyl record but there were 2 versions done for the 12" vinyl single. The version I have included for download is the instrumental mix of the 12" single which has been credited as the "A" side. The vocal version being the "B" flipside. Both tracks have been forwarded to the Ozburn project with complements of Jim and moi.
Thanks Jim B. for this rare oldie "Your Brain Has Ears":

  1. Triple MMM, FM, Stero, Radio...
    I remember this, and I'm sure I remember being on 7" vinyl. That really distinctive guitar break is straight lift from 16 bars of Chris Spedding finger work about 3 min 10 sec into the opening track of Mike Batt's Tarot Suite 'Journey of a fool'. I often wondered if they paid anyone royalties for that 30 seconds.
