Mike Batt- Waves (1980)




Michael Philip "Mike" Batt (nacido el 6 de febrero de 1949, en Southampton, Inglaterra) es un compositor, músico, productor, y vicepresidente de la Industria Fonográfica Británica. Él es sobre todo conocido por militar en el grupo The Wombles, pop, del llamado cristiano, y por componer el tema "Bright Eyes", que triunfó en la voz de Art Garfunkel, además de colaborar con Tim Rice, en varias canciones para David Essex, y el descubrimiento de Katie Melua. Además de varias bandas sonoras de peliculas y alguna ópera rock. Y son bastantes las canciones y colaboraciones que ha hecho para otros músicos y cantantes.

También ha grabado algunos discos en solitario, y este que comparto es, en mi opinión, bueno..... contiene alguna canción memorable, caso de "The Winds Of Change", que nada que ver con el tema de igual titulo de Scorpions, y también "Mona" .... Son mas bien temas reposados, semiacústicos, pero con muy buenas armonias, bellos en su construción, y algún otro con mas ritmo, .... yo lo comparto, tu verás si al escucharlo, decides comprar una copia, si la encuentras............

Pues sí, un disco majo, y si no llega a ser por vosotros me lo pierdo, porque ya me imagino que este disco no se encontrará fácilmente.

Mike Batt-(06/02/1950, Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom) - voc, k, composer, arranger, songwriter, record producer. Son of an engineer. Already in the mid-sixties, during high school, was a singer and pianist of the group beats Phase Four, recorded her first single, including in 1966, What Do You Say About That / Think I'll Sit Down And Cry for Decca.
In 1968 he was employed at Liberty record - as a songwriter, arranger and record producer (played worked with Jo-Ann Kelly, The Groundhogs and Hapshah And The Coloured Coat), and after some time as a talent scout. He recorded for the first solo singles, such as In 1968 Mr. Poem / Fading Yellow.
In 1969 he was an independent composer and producer (he started his own music publishing company and agency producer - Songs and Batt Batt Enterprises).
Batt opted to handle all of the vocals on "Waves" himself (and a natural lead singer he is not), but the quirky nature of his voice is ideally suited for the unpredictable and unconventional turns his music frequently takes. engaging pop numbers intertwined with prog and orchestrated rock & roll accented by electric guitar and saxophones.
He composed music for many films.
In the early eighties,made a journey by yacht, round the world.

Death guitarist, other musicians, for whom Montrose was a friend and idol:
Slash:
Myles [Kennedy] told me that Ronnie Montrose left. Fucking grief . 'Montrose' is one of the best rock and roll. He was a great inspiration for me. R.I.P, man.
David Ellefson:
R.I.P Ronnie Montrose! I am sad to hear that. I had the pleasure to play with it somehow between 2005 and 2007. Very energetic and crazy wild man guitarist. Many learned from him! Rest in peace.
Glenn Hughes:
