Mike Read's melodies were inspired by Sir John Betjeman's poems, 4 tracks recorded with Sir George Martin.

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. 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. CD2 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 2CD set.
