Full Moon’, originally released on the Demon label in Europe, was Paul Brady’s first live album captured from one night’s performance in April 1984 at London’s Half Moon pub where Paul played many memorable shows in the mid 80s. In his band at the time were Terry Williams on drums, soon to be in Dire Straits, legendary guitarist Phil Palmer, again prior to his stints with Eric Clapton and Dire Straits, the late and much missed Kenny Craddock from Newcastle on Tyne on keyboards and on bass and vocals the great Ian Maidman. Featuring many of the songs from Paul’s first two records, Hard Station and True For You, this record captures the urgency and magic of Paul’s earliest performances as an emerging artist. Check out dynamite performances of Steel Claw and Not The Only One …seven years before Bonnie Raitt’s celebrated cover of the song and a rare live performance of the song Take Me Away. A ‘must have’ for Brady aficionados,
