A Songwriter's Tale  by Mike Batt
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


Mike Batt steps back into his "artist" role with this new release of fresh recordings of his most well-known hits including `Bright Eyes', `Soldier's Song', `A Winter's Tale' and "The Closest Thing To Crazy".

`A Songwriters Tale' comprises 16 tracks representing some of the key songs of his life as a performer and writer. Batt sold hundreds of thousands of albums around the world in the 70s, 80s and 90s as a signed artist to Epic, for which label he made 6 solo albums. In addition to songs from his own albums `A Songwriter's Tale' also contains new recordings of songs written and produced by him for other artists including Art Garfunkel, The Hollies, Cliff Richard, David Essex and, most recently, Katie Melua.

Mike Batt said, "The new album has given me the chance to reinterpret some of my more well-known material. It's like a retrospective exhibition for a painter, but doing the paintings over again.
