Mike has produced albums for some of the most famous artists in British Rock and Blues history including John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (with Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor); David Bowie; Ten Years After; Savoy Brown; Fleetwood Mac (with Peter Green, Danny Kirwan and Christine McVie); Chicken Shack; Focus; Freddie King; Climax Blues Band; Level 42 and Roachford, and in 2013 was awarded the BASCA Gold Badge Award, in recognition of his unique contribution to music.
Mike is probably best known as the founder of the Blues record label BLUE HORIZON (Peter Green, Rory Gallagher, Paul Kossoff, Christone McVie) – a major ‘ground breaker’ in its time and still revered to this very day.
Maybe not quite so well-known is Mike’s ‘other’ job – that of vocalist. In the 1970s and early 1980s Mike was not only a member of The Olympic Runners but also the baritone singer with Rocky Sharpe & The Replays
