1992 UK promo CD-EP Chris Braide: Work in Progress

  1. Funny Five Minutes [possibly a unique demo version]
  2. Jesus on the Bus [possibly a unique demo version]
  3. The Choice Is Yours [possibly a unique demo version]
  4. Helpless [this track is unique to this release]
  5. I'm Not [possibly a unique demo version] (Polydor CBCD 1)
http://www.45worlds.com/cdsingle/cd/cbcd1

"Funny Five Minutes, an idea that was started in Preston one summer night and was finished in Warrington in 1988. It was demoed by myself and a friend and the tapes sold at school for £ 2 each. What you'll find on the CD is the new improved version with a little production help from Thomas Dolby. Jesus on the Bus is written about a tramp from Warrington but is not about Jesus, so no need to burn the record folks. The Choice Is Yours was written in the middle of winter 1991 and was recorded as a demo in my bedroom. Helpless - very fond memories of this one. Me and Glenn Tilbrook sat in my bedroom listening to XTC, Nat King Cole and Crowded House whacking down some ideas that would eventually end up in this song recorded in April 1992, this is another demo. I'm Not was written on a train facing a business man with a pocket T.V. and a vodaphone - very annoying when trying to get some sleep."

Quote from http://www.mywarrington.me.uk/entertaining_people.htm#Chris%20Braide: "At the age of 16 [1989] Braide secured his first publishing contract with Zomba Music Publishing. In an interview with HitQuarters he cited this as his career breakthrough because, in his words, it "opened up the world to me". Leaving his hometown of Warrington he moved down to London, where he signed to Polydor Records as a recording artist. His first residence in the capital was at the home of songwriter Cathy Dennis who, at the time, was also signed to Polydor as an artist."

(1993) unreleased album CHRIS BRAIDE: CHAPTER ONE

    (Polydor)
Quote from https://chrisbraidemusic.angelfire.com/chrisbraidetimeline.html: "Chris had been in London 3 years now moving from his hometown of Warrington, England at the age of 16 with his parents, Ann and Kenneth's consent. He landed a manager, Andy Graham, and signs with Polydor Records to record his first album with help from Simply Red's Mick Hucknall. Unfortunately, the album was shelved by Polydor never to be released.

Quote from http://www.mywarrington.me.uk/entertaining_people.htm#Chris%20Braide: "In 1993, Chris recorded his debut album "Chapter One" for Polydor Records. The album was produced by Thomas Dolby and Mick Hucknall and recorded at the residential studio Condulmer in Italy."

The story behind this digital album was once featured here: http://www.theorchard.com/release/888002065650/chris-braide/chapter-one, but was deleted, but appeared here instead: https://archive.ph/20131015075743/http://www.theorchard.com/release/888002065650/chris-braide/chapter-one - "In 1993, Chris then aged 20, recorded his debut self penned album Chapter One, for Polydor Records at the residential studio Condulmer in Italy. The album was produced by Thomas Dolby and Mick Hucknall, but unfortunately the album never saw the light of day, with all the tapes thought to have been lost. However, in late 2009, Chris came across an old box of tapes which miraculously contained many of those early recordings. Although there was some deterioration, the songs still sounded fresh so Chris, got to work restoring and re-mastering the tapes and what you hear on this release is exactly what was recorded back in 1993. The album is more than just a young guys apprenticeship into the music business, it is a beautiful collection of soulful and skilfully crafted songs that touch each emotion Mick Hucknall (at the helm on most of the tracks on this album) also played bass guitar and sang backing vocals on Mother Never Told Me, as well as bringing along Simply Red drummer Gota Yashiki & engineer Roland Herrington. Additional drums came from Neil Conti (Prefab Sprout) and the wonderful Ruby Turner sang backing vocals on Surrender. Chris's long time friend Glenn Tilbrook played guitar on Funny Five Minutes Four songs were lined up as singles from the album Funny Five Minutes (co-written with Tony Braide), produced by Thomas Dolby, Mother Never Told Me, So Divine & Surrender. The latter was the only one to make official release, the single version being produced by David Bascombe. All singles are now digitally available together with b-sides and original artwork."
