Love That Album Episode 15 - Broderick Smith's Big Combo

For episode 15 of Love That Album podcast, Michael Pursche (of Sitting in a Bar in Adelaide podcast) discuss the wonderful but seldom talked about album from 1981, the eponymous album for Broderick Smith’s Big Combo. (You might say that we’re doing a Brod-cast) Brod emerged from Carson and The Dingoes to form this fantastic ensemble that reminds me of “Darkness” era E-Street Band and reminds Michael of Van Morrison. Either way, Brod is a gifted songwriter with a talent for painting a picture and telling a story – not always a pleasant one. Aztec Music has re-released this long deleted album, and it sounds a treat. Michael and I discuss the great musicianship and the lyrics to the album, Brod’s history as well as that of the members of the band. With a lineup including Mick O’ Connor on organ and the great Mal Eastick on guitar, you know he has an ensemble capable of great things. If you’ve not heard of him, listen to our chat, and track down the newly mastered CD re-release.
...oh, and the show is acomparitively short one and a half hours.....
