Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I cannot begin to tell you the joy that I have had over the last couple of weeks listening to this double album since it arrived from Amazon. I consider myself to be a Mike Batt fan buying every album that I knew of when it was released (mostly on vinyl) yet both these albums managed to pass me by. I had been disappointed at Mike's album "Six Days In Berlin" but wonderfully excited by "Hunting of the Snark" yet regular checks in the Batt sections at HMV and Virgin Megastores had never brought "Songs of Love & War" or "Arabesque" to my attention. Maybe, as both albums were commissioned by Sony Germany, they were never even given a U.K. release.

In other words, receiving this double album from Amazon was like receiving two brand new albums from Mike Batt. I listened with trepidation but was not disappointed. One good song after another, is what I heard.

"Songs of Love & War" sounds to me a bit like a companion album to "Schizophonia" (despite being more than a decade apart) partly because they both share Magritte inspired album cover designs and partly as they even have one track in common!

Although "you can't judge a CD by its cover" the design made me think I was going to enjoy the album. In his new sleeve notes, Mike comments that he was not in the right frame of mind to write all new songs for this album and so he feels he cheated with using his back catalogue to provide two songs written for the Hollies and also the title track to the movie "Caravans" which is familiar to all Batt fans. I couldn't disagree more. There would only have been the Barbara Dixon version of the wonderful song "The Caravan Song" available when the album was released and Batt's vocals give it a different feel.
