Mike Starrs is the former lead singer of jazz rock fusionists Colosseum II, Lucifer’s Friend and the German band Lake. This is the first ever re-release of his only solo album, Electric Garden, with four bonus tracks added.
When it was first released in 1973, Electric Garden was only available in six European countries and the non-album singles, now included as bonus tracks, were only available in three European countries. This re-release is a ‘catch-all’ of his 1970s solo releases.
The album has been re-mastered by band member Gerry Morris and approved by Mike Starrs and original producer Tony Atkins. The booklet includes two sets of liner notes; the original 1973 notes and retrospective notes newly written by Mike Starrs.
All the tracks feature Geoff Whitehorn of Procol Harum on guitar and all but one track includes John Richardson of The Rubettes on drums.
Mike Starrs said of the re-release: “A young man who had his whole life / career in front of him. I remember hearing my first single Love Song on Juke Box Jury and they all voted it a hit. Who could ever have imagined that I would be sitting here talking about and reminiscing about my very first album Electric Garden…?”
