* !!!"THE BRADISH INVASION" HIT BY ELVIS AND THE BEATLES!!!

"THE BRITISH INVASION" COUNTER-COLLIDES WITH "THE BRADISH INVASION" AS THE BEATLES "LOVE" ALBUM, WITH VEILED COMMA, JOINS BIG SOUND OF "LOVE, BRAD" AND "LOVE, ELVIS" CHANGING RIVALRY TO BRAD-ELVIS-BEATLES CD TRIVALRY!

!!! THE BRAD ALAN CHALLENGE… HAS... BEEN... MET!!!

A sly BEATLES release has once more caste itself in the middle of excitement and controversy, this time with artwork that looks like a veiled "," after the word "LOVE" and double-dual mastering on The BEATLES "LOVE" album that makes "the British Invasion," with "The Beatles as you've never heard them before" lock horns with the competitive and compatible homogenous dueling sound settings of "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis," already getting played head-to-head and side-by-side at radio stations in the South. The Beatles release has instantly turned the BRAD-ELVIS rivalry with "Love, Brad," "Love, Elvis" and "Elvis rock" into a BRAD-ELVIS-BEATLES trivalry. Athough The BEATLES still sound like The BEATLES, on "LOVE", Paul's great vocals sound big, wide and husky with vibratos that flow out in beautiful, dark, thin slivers that unexpectedly and pleasantly fit in perfectly with Brad and Elvis on "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis" for some amazingly fun BRAD-ELVIS-BEATLES song 3-plays. It's apples-to-apples from Apple sound settings! Check out the great competitive and compatible match-up of even the sample sound files of these BRAD-ELVIS-BEATLES trivalry song triplings from "Love, Brad," "Love, Elvis"(with the bloody "Love," hook atop its CD) and The BEATLES "LOVE" album (with the veiled "," after the E):

Tripling 1:
"Love, Elvis" - "I Want You , I Need You , I Love You"
The BEATLES "LOVE" album - "I Want To Hold Your Hand"
"Love, Brad" - "Doin' Nothin' With You"

Tripling 2:
"Love, Elvis" - "Can't Help Falling In Love"
The BEATLES "LOVE" album - "Hey Jude" (this is a great cut on the album!)
"Love, Brad" - "To"

For more details see press release at bottem of press page





* Brad has continued to get general airplay. And stations have continued to play Love, Brad and Love, Elvis love songs head-to-head as well. Other stations have sounded agreeable to checking out "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis" head-to-head. And some stations have started giving some thought in the direction of "Hound Dog" from Elvis rock and "You're A Cutie" from Love, Brad.


*There is an interesting new version of "Hound Dog" on the 2006 Elvis rock CD with perfect sound parameters for playing head-to-head with "You're A Cutie" on Love, Brad! It's actually awesome! Elvis and Brad both have a big sound on these cuts. And it's CLASH OF THE TITAN VOICES with this pairing of "You're A Cutie" and "Hound Dog!" And which is the greater rock 'n' roll novelty song, the baby song or the doggie song?... Or can it never be decided?... Said Brad:"I think 'Hound Dog' is a great song. But I don't think it's quite as strong as 'You're A Cutie.' I do feel they're really close, though." Also, be sure to check out Brad's live performance video of "KNOWN AS A ROCKER" that's at this site as well as check out these well-matched sound files for "Love Me Tender" and "Miss-You Morning Teardrops" from "Love, Elvis" and "Love, Brad." Here's an mp3 file for "Miss-You Morning Teardrops" from "Love, Brad" as well.


* Everyone's records, once made, are recordings of past performances. With the songs and performances and mastering on the Love, Brad and Love, Elvis and now Elvis rock CDs, an Elvis-Brad, or that's Brad-Elvis, rivalry could be worth millions... or maybe billions(!)... Although the sound settings are not lined up evenly between web sites, listen to some Elvis record samples that play at the homepage of elvisthemusic.com... Then listen to this Brad record sample and this one from the "Love, Brad" site as well as watching this and this Brad Alan video clip. It's still interesting... But if you really want to see and hear interesting, get the Love, Brad and Love, Elvis CDs...


*Which is better?... Love, Brad?... Love, Elvis?... or can it never be decided?... After listening to both albums for a while, whatcha think?... Are they a rivalry set?... Are they a golden, 2-artist set of Elvis Oldies and Brad Newies?... Are they both?... What would you say?...

*Buy Love, Elvis at WALMART or a music store or put "Love, Elvis" in a search engine on the web, play it head-to-head and side-by-side with Love, Brad and hear what happens...


*CONSTRUCT YOUR OWN BRAD ALAN EVENT??? - Brad has appeared at quite a few established fairs and festivals. But what are some creative ideas for new events for the Bradish Invasion to hit? One idea that could be used in different regions is THE "YOU'RE A CUTIE" BABY FESTIVAL mentioned earlier. Another idea, whether or not it ever happens, is to have radio pound Love, Brad and Love, Elvis love songs head-to-head leading into a concert where Brad sings Elvis classics from "Love, Elvis" and Brad-new songs from "Love, Brad"... maybe some other songs too... Radio stations are already playing these CDs head-to-head... Some type of concert appearances related to this phenomenon certainly seems in order...What out-of-the-ordinary, new and creative ideas can YOU come up with for a Brad Alan appearance? Call in or email...


* Love, Brad has continued to get airplay. And stations have continued to play Love, Brad and Love, Elvis together.


*ON GUTS - There has been talk in radio regarding Brad of the guts it takes to go head-to-head with Elvis. But something that takes guts is for RCA, and assumedly the Presleys, to allow Elvis to be laid to bare with the same sound settings on "Love, Elvis" as are on Brad on "Love, Brad." That allows people to compare Brad's and Elvis's perfomances with no electronic advantages either way, it just gets down to artistry and songs. And the sound settings are beautiful enough on both anyway. If RCA whipped up a bunch of Elvis songs to just try to electronically out-pizzazz Brad, that wouldn't really allow a fair comparison between Elvis and Brad. But to allow people to hear Elvis on the same settings as Brad's album, that puts everything they have on the line artistically taking no technology advantage. A gutsy move. Early on, Brad thought about trying to get "Love, Brad" remastered to electronically sound stronger than "Love, Elvis," but after thinking about it, he realized that then he would be running from going head-to-head and side-by-side with Elvis with everything else being equal when RCA had already made the electronic playing field between both albums dead-even. And besides, if he got "Love, Brad" remastered, then "Love, Elvis" and "Love, Brad" wouldn't also seamlessly match like a 2-artist set of old and new songs the way they do... These two albums are an enigma together...


*If anyone would like theirs to be the first region to hold an annual "YOU'RE A CUTIE" BABY FESTIVAL, email in.





*In September of 2005, market leader 92.9 WEGX, "The Eagle," of Florence, S.C. made one unprecedented, one-in-a-million radio airplay move after another in "the Bradish Invasion"playing "You're A Cutie" from "Love, Brad." The "You're A Cutie"(epic) saga began when THE rock'n'roll love song from a parent to a baby, which had pulled tons of requests in radio elsewhere on saturation play over time, was unexpectedly, unanimously voted down by callers in an afternoon call-in feature." It looked like it could be the end for "You're A Cutie" on WEGX. But after some analysis of the facts, program director Randy Wilcox, "Mudflap," made the unprecedented decision in all of the history of WEGX to put "You're A Cutie" on the feature again - a good decision as "the baby song" began to pull some support calls. But even so, it still "lost" or seemed to... in the overall call-in scoring. But did this keep "You're A Cutie" down? NO!! Not "You're A Cutie!" Somehow... things were moving in the right direction in spite of all still to the contrary under growing support! Next, on September 22nd, 2005, the morning team of Mudflap and Mattie took over, putting the song on the line over and over again playing "You're A Cutie" repeatedly (reportedly at least a half dozen times)and fielding calls on different Brad Alan
topics.
Wrote Loggingparts@aol.com on 09/22/05,"Brad, Eagle 92.9 in Florence, SC has played your song like 83 times today. Keep up the good work..."
There was some comment by an early listener that all he could hear was "You're A Cutie," so for anyone who the words went by too fast or unclearly for, here is the whole sweet, tender lyric for the rock'n' roll baby love song that kept getting play for a while in the face of early adversity.

YOU'RE A CUTIE
© 1989
Brad Alan

As you're sittin' in your high chair
How I love to feed 'n' watch ya.
I am so in love with you
Kitchy-kitchy-koo

Well you're a cutie
Little baby cutie
You're a cutie
Teeny tiny cutie
You're a cutie
Iddy biddy cutie
You're a cutie and ya know it too.

Look at me .
Can you say papa?
Since you're walkin'
Nothin' stops ya.
Mama thinks you hung the moon
And da-da thinks it too.

Well you're a cutie
Little baby cutie
You're a cutie
Teeny tiny cutie
You're a cutie
Iddy biddy cutie
You're a cutie and ya know it too.

Well you're a cutie
Little baby cutie
You're a cutie
Teeny tiny cutie
You're a cutie
Iddy biddy cutie
You're a cutie and ya know it too.

Even if my day has brought me nothin' but gloom,
No matter what I wanna see you.
'Cause even if I'm tired an' I'm feelin' blue,
You can smile and it'll light up the room.

Well you're a cutie
Little baby cutie
You're a cutie
Teeny tiny cutie
You're a cutie
Iddy biddy cutie
You're a cutie and ya know it too.

You're a cutie and ya know it too.
You're a cutie and know it too.

Hey, it's not where you start, it's where you finish, if the game ever really ends. And often it's not so much what happened last but what happens next that's more important depending on how you play the game now. And since opinions can change, it's not always what people think early on but often what the truth really is that counts long term. And leaders don't get to be leaders by following the crowd. So, many thanks to all those who liked "You're A Cutie" or expressed support for it after a seemingly catestrophic start! And many thanks to Mudflap and Mattie at market leader WEGX for putting everything on the line over and over with the song.

As "You're A Cutie" was making its gravity-defying rise in airplay at the Eagle on 09/22/05, many miles away other radio stations were going about the routine, daily business of playing "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis" love songs head-to-head and side-by-side...





*Congratulations to Florence Johnson and Laverne Bridges for winning copies of the Love, Brad collection of love songs CD in radio station call-in contests! Please call in to BAJ Enterprises with the number on the "Love, Brad" CD face [(336) 996-2011] to stay in touch and email often! Remember Love, Brad at gift-giving times!


*Not too long after the release of Love, Elvis, radio stations began to play Love, Brad and "Love, Elvis" love songs head-to-head. Among the stations that have done this already are Q 104 in Alma, GA and WACO 100 in Sandersville, GA. And these stations have given months and months of head-to-head play to the albums. And the play continues to this day. "Love, Brad" and "Love,Elvis" are great to wage CD RADIO WAR with (in an extention or a progression of the AIRPLAY RADIO WAR) or to just play side by side in a compatible, complimentary way. The mastering is just amazing between these albums... You can just throw them at each other over and over again and they work great different ways. If you continue to listen back and forth between them to song pairings such as "Love Me Tender" and "Miss-You Morning Teardrops" or "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and "Lock, Stock 'n' Barrel," part way through a listening session the mastering between these albums can just open up into the most beautiful sound between them. Capers Brazzell of WACO 100 said he felt Brad going head-to-head with Elvis with "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis" had been helpful to Brad and he thought "Love, Brad" had been helpful to "Love, Elvis" as well. In any event, Elvis has now entered the building of Brad's career and is right in the middle of all the commotion and kooky antics in the out-of-the ordinary story of "the Bradish Invasion." Says Brad,"Elvis can crash my scene and sound and party any time. He's always welcome." Because Elvis's voice and recordings on "Love, Elvis" are matched up to Brad's voice and recordings on "Love, Brad" as closely as is humanly possible, "Love, Elvis" makes it clear that "Love, Brad" has a continuation of the kind of stuff that Elvis did that stands up head-to head and side-by-side with the whole Elvis catalog of music. But since the mastering on "Love, Elvis" even enhances the sound of "Love, Brad" a bit by relative comparison and vice-versa, to really appreciate this angle of "Love, Brad," you gotta get "Love, Elvis" and frankly, to really appreciate "Love, Elvis" fully, you gotta get "Love, Brad!" For reviewers who have said "Love, Elvis" is a good or great Elvis collection of love songs but that it is not of much collectors value because with only one previously unreleased Elvis track ("For The Good Times")it offers little that is new, they need to see some of the hidden angles of "Love, Elvis," including its mastering, that when you put it with "Love, Brad" make "Love, Brad" 22 Brad-new songs on Elvis! "Love, Elvis" and "Love, Brad" are a 2-in-1 enigma. You just have to get them both and listen to them and check them out a while. They are a barrel of musical and promotional monkeys.


*Following years of airplay, radio station and newspaper promotion of "the Bradish Invasion," and rounds of an "AIRPLAY RADIO WAR" involving some wild-hair kind of moves by stations playing just Brad in the South with the Love, Brad collection of love songs project, in an unexpected move RCA records released Love, Elvis on Elvis Presley in 2005. A fairer set of songs and masters on Elvis there could never be than on "Love, Elvis" for having Elvis go head-to-head and side-by-side with Brad on "Love, Brad" in "the Bradish Invasion." In an amazing move by RCA, "Love, Elvis" has apples-to-apples sound settings to "Love, Brad." The highs and lows on Elvis's and Brad's voices, the beautiful, husky and mellow, very 3-dimensional-sounding texture of their voices, the size of their voices on the "audio canvas," the level of the back-up vocals, the feel of the music beds and the compression of the overall recordings all feel dead-even. If you listen to Elvis 30 #1s, it has different sound settings than "Love, Brad," so it doesn't really allow apples-to-apples comparison with "Love, Brad." But "Love, Elvis" seems to be saying, with the sound settings being even on "Love, Elvis" and "Love, Brad," Elvis and Brad GO AT IT! On "Love, Elvis" and "Love, Brad" you can compare Brad's and Elvis's performances and songs with everything else being equal sound-wise, but the same dead-even "dueling albums" sound qualities that make them so fun and amazing to play head-to-head competitively also make them work compatibly like a 2-artist set of golden Elvis classics on "Love, Elvis" and Brad-new songs on "Love, Brad" that Elvis never had the chance to cut but could have done a great job with had it only been possible. But, they are Brad songs on "Love, Brad." Yet it is seamless going from one album to the other. "Love, Brad" and "Love, Elvis" together have amazing angles for discussion.


*The Bradish Invasion hit OKTOBERFEST in Fort Bragg at the Fort Bragg Fair Grounds on October 14th, 2004. Brad Alan appeared LIVE IN CONCERT for 2 shows which produced some of the best live performance video footage caught on Brad Alan to date.

And they included songs from the "Love, Brad" collection of loves songs as well as from a "ROCK" line-up that has not been recorded yet...

The run-downs are to promote the progressive, flexible "expandable song domain" concept in artist project structuring, of which " Love, Brad " is an example. The stations involved are 1070 WGOS of High Point, N.C., 106.1 WMMY of Baldwin, N.C., and stations 92.3 WMOQ and 1580 WKUN, both of Monroe, GA. 1070 WGOS has programmed time from 8:20 to 8:30 am the 26th thru the 30th to air " Love, Brad " love songs in order. More time can be scheduled for later, if necessary, to complete the run-down.

In a progressive move, the " Love, Brad " line-up recently grew from a collection of 11 to a collection of 22 love songs. Scroll to the end of the
Brad Bullets page to read a press release for one of the station " Love, Brad " album run-downs.

* " Love, Brad " JUST... GOT... BIGGER!!! " Love, Brad " began with a collection of 11 love songs. In a one-in-a-million story in music, radio stations in the South promoted "the Bradish Invasion" over the air as singer and songwriter Brad Alan emerged on the music scene. After an "airplay radio war" broke out in the South in the year 2000, which continued into 2001 with rounds of radio war airplay from time to time, the progressive, digital age decision was made to extend " Love, Brad " as an open-ended commercial domain of love songs from its original collection of 11 to a collection of 22 songs. " Love, Brad " extended line-up CDs went out to radio stations in September and there has already been airplay from within the most recent group of " Love, Brad " song releases. If people can download 50 songs or more on a little gizmo and add to their collections, in this day and age it makes sense to structure projects to be flexibly expandable. Why stop at 10 or 11 songs?!!! The extended, expandable " Love, Brad " commercial domain is progressive. Although, the " Love, Brad " cassette, around which there has been collectors item talk, with the first 11 " Love, Brad " love songs is still available, there is now a CD available for public sale which contains all 22 songs in the extended " Love, Brad " line-up of love songs! " The CD is available for $15.00 - order by email from this site if you would like one. " Love, Brad " JUST... GOT... BIGGER!!!
