A hugely successful, award-winning songwriter, singer and musician, BA ROBERTSON enjoyed his most commercially successful period while signed to Asylum Records in the late 70s and early 80s.

During that period, BA was rarely out of the charts with hit singles including ‘Bang Bang’, ‘Knocked It Off’, ‘Kool In The Kaftan’, ‘To Be Or Not To Be’ and, with Maggie Bell, ‘Hold Me’.

Amazingly, BA’s Asylum recordings have never officially been reissued on CD – until now!

Compiled by the artist himself with remastered sound, new sleeve-notes by Eddie Harrison and each reissue boasting numerous bonus tracks, BA’s Asylum albums have finally been treated to the reissue programme they deserve.

BULLY FOR YOU was the second of BA’s albums for Asylum. First issued in 1981, it spawned two singles, ‘Flight 19’ (inspired by the US airplanes which disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 1945) and the opening track ‘Saint Saens’.

Among the wealth of bonus tracks is a unique medley issued as a flexidisc, demos for BA’s theme tunes to the TV shows Maggie and The Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, various radio versions and B-sides and a medley captured at a rare live performance by BA at Edinburgh Festival in 2004.
