Oh ye who think Mike Batt went no further than The Wombles and Watership Down will need to write one thousand lines for the Headmaster after reading this wonderful piece of good news I'm sharing with you now.
Yes, indeed, whilst he may have been guilty of all things Wombling and Bunny, there is / was an all-out rocker whom emerged Bright Eyed from the wilds of Wimbledon Common in 1998 to bring an enthralling cast of Stars together for this rather unusual album. With no track listing to whet your appetite to understand what I'm burbling about, here we go:-
Joey tempest - Born To Run.
John Farnham - A Whiter Shade Of Pale.
Paul Carrack - No Face, No Name, No Number.
Bonnie Tyler - I Put A Spell On You.
Marc Almond - Paint It Black.
Mike Batt - Bright Eyes (had to be, didn't it).
Roger Daltrey - The Boys Of Summer.
Lemmy - Eve Of Destruction.
Jutin Hayward - Nights In White Satin.
Huey Lewis - The Power Of Love.
Colin Blunstone - Owner Of The Lonely Heart.
Kim Wilde - Because The Night.
Status Quo - Not Fade Away.
Midge Ure - Viennna.
OK, a couple of those are a bit obvious, but as the insert tells us they are brand new recordings made with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, produced, arranged and conducted by Mike Batt. So they are rather grandiose and entirely different, 'Vienna' being a case in point, now orchestrated rather than the synthesiser-based original.
Biggest and best surprise track of all is Motorhead's Lemmy singing on Barry McGuire's 1966 Number One single, 'Eve Of Destruction,' his voice fits in there with absolute perfection, and for me this track makes the album.
It's one of those you can just put on and press 'Play' and let it run, nothing awful to have to blip past, an all-round top-notch album and very 'different.'

I am in my 50's, love the pop music from the 50's, 60's, and 70's.

When the singers/song writers/bands/groups in the 80's started the heavy use of the synthesizer (to replace real instruments), the cloning of their background accompaniments a la Michael McDonald's WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES, the use of drum machine, and other artifical electronic sound processings, I stopped listen to pop music altogether! Occassionally, one hears 80's songs on the radio while driving or hear them as background music at restaurants, bars, shopping malls. I always tell myself I really don't miss the 80's at all.

Back to this compact disc. I love every single track on it. Why? Very simple, all the singers have very strong and good voice; each song was chosen well for each singer; most of all, the entire record has a sincere and intimate feel throughout, as each singers was accompanied by the meticulous symphonic arrangement of Mike Batt, which was performed by the fabulous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I don't take for granted anymore these days on any pop music that employs classical musicians because of the enoromous economic burden placed on the production costs!!!!
