1972 > MORNING OF THE EARTH

First Things First

Tamam Shud

 

Brod appears doing vocals on the song , First Things First, by Tamam Shud

Singer Lindsay Bjerre was having voice problems when they cut the song, so the original vocal was done by lead guitarist Tim Gaze. However, producer G. Wayne Thomas was evidently not satisfied with the result so he erased Tim's vocal, and he brought in Broderick Smith to lay down a new track.

 

1973 > TOMMY (Australian Cast recording of the The Who’s Rock Opera)

Broderick played the part of the Father.

 

1977 > Played harmonica on Cat Steven's album IZITSO Track 8. Sweet Jamaica. (The 0riginal title was Sweet Patootie and then he changed the lyrics. Brod)
