Rod Stewart - In a Broken Dream ( Python Lee Jackson )

Every now and again I hear a song on the radio that I used to play years ago, but haven't played in a long time. So I get my guitar out, and, as I've usually forgotten some if not all of the lyrics ( chords too! ), I go to the artist page on my site, or use the search option at the top of each page, find the song - sorted! Sometimes I will add it to my current repertoire (abbatoir??!) of songs, sometimes it won't get played again for a while.

And sometimes I discover that I never actually got around to posting the song, even though when I first created my chords and lyrics site, I thought I had transcribed every song from every notebook, scrap of paper etc.

But... it's all good, as well as revisiting the song myself, I get a chance to feature it on my site, on the artist page and on the updates(new songs) page. For some it will be a treasure, as many of these songs can't be found elsewhere, for others a chance to listen to and learn a really good 'blast from the past'.

In this instance the song is "In a Broken Dream" by Python Lee Jackson. "Python who?" I hear you ask. Well, if you run a Wikipedia search for the band you'll find out that they were a 60's Australian band, and a whole lot more, but from my perspective, when I was a big Rod Stewart and the Faces fan, this song, on which he guested as singer, was re-released somewhere between The Faces "Stay with Me" and Rod's solo classic "Maggie May", and was probably the most played jukebox song of my youth.

It's a classic rock/blues song, and Rod's vocals fit like a glove.

I've made good my omission, and added the song to my Rod Stewart guitar chords and lyrics page, at the link below:

I hope you'll have as much fun playing the song as I've had! If you are an aspiring blues player, get on over to my Guitar Tips Blog, where I've just posted three blues video lessons from Dan Denley's Blues great Guitar Secrets course.
