Description

Sound of Poetry [Import] on CD

Two CD set. Mike Read has always loved writing, reading and performing music and poetry. Whilst reading poetry from the late Sir John Betjeman, it opened the musical floodgates and, over the years, he wrote melodies which came into his head whilst reading the poems. He played several early demos to Lady Betjeman and she was supportive of the project. He then approached Sir George Martin who loved the project and got involved in the first four songs who then bought on board Rod Edwards to complete the album's production. Disc Two was produced by Jon Sweet. Mike approached artists that he thought were absolutely right for each song and Cliff Richard, David Essex, Colin Blunstone, Gene Pitney and Steve Harley are just a few of the talented individuals who were involved in this 30 track set. Angel Air. 2008.
