Bullett –Leave That Girl Alone


Bullett-Leave That Girl Alone / We Can Make It-RCA 101961 (1972 Aus)

Leave That Girl Alone appears to be the second single released by this Australian band. Based in Sydney, members included Alex Smith, Joe and Mario Azzopardi and others ... Please fill in the gaps someone! Alex Smith was with Francis Butler's 69'ers (see review August 13th 2008) and the Azzopardi brothers later formed family band Afrika. Leave That Girl Alone is a Ted Mulry composition, but I'm not sure if he released it himself at any point ... The track itself comes across like a concise raucous Quicksilver Messenger Service number filtered through a later date Easybeats grind. Not quite Twister, but pretty good...

hey robin! greetings again from Boston, MA, USA....this is a GREAT track....i really like the guitar dynamics in it, and yeah, since it's an Albert production, you gotta wonder how much Vanda/Young is in there! Cheers! Jim Horan

Great song. there is NO vanda/young on this version but it is on the Ted Mulry version. It's from Ted's very hard to find second LP.

Any chance of posting the B-side please ?

I am currently stuck in the land of cheese, so no B side for the time being...Hope to return to Blighy in the next few days...Only found 3 singles ...But one looks like a cool discovery...

Hi! My father is Joe Azzopardi. He's the lead singer and guitarist on this track. Maybe I can help with filling some gaps about Bullett for you.
Cheers! Michael Azzopardi

Hello Michael
Good to hear from you. For one I still haven't managed to track down the other single. One question comes to mind. When Alex Smith left or when the band split did he form another band called Bullet (one "T") on the Chicago label? BTW, if you go to my profile you can find my direct email address
All the best to you and your dad
Robin
