Australian charts: 1971
Falling in Love Again peaked at no 19 on the Go-Set National Top 40 in April 1971.
Albert Productions persuaded Ted Mulry to become a recording artist and he soon rose to fame as a solo singer/songwriter with his own composition, the pop ballad “Julia”, which made the Australian charts in 1970. He followed that with “Falling in Love Again”, a song by The Easybeats songwriting team Vanda & Young, which was a major hit in 1971.
Though born in England, Martin Albert Mulry, aka Ted Mulry, found fame in Australia, first as a songwriter and balladeer and then as frontman for ’70s rockers the Ted Mulry Gang, who were regulars on the country’s pub rock circuit for a decade. Ted Mulry arrived in Australia in 1969, where he worked in Sydney driving a bulldozer until his friends convinced him to send demos of his songs to the famous Albert Productions label, home of the Easybeats. At that point Mulry had only considered writing songs for others and had to be talked into recording one of the songs, “Julia,” himself. Harry Vanda and George Young of the Easybeats wrote his next hit single, “Falling in Love Again,” which was released a year later.
