In the late 1960s, Mickey Jupp formed Legend - a band which helped lay the groundwork for pub rock. When this group split, Mickey embarked on a solo career, eventually signing to Stiff Records.
This compilation of BBC recordings represents Mickey at his most active during the late 1970s. Included here is the only known recording of the track, 'Wrong Food'.
The booklet includes lengthy liner notes and several rare, previously unpublished photographs.
In addition to being a great singer, guitarist & pianist, Mickey Jupp is also a highly respected songwriter and his recordings have been covered by several artists over the past few years. Including Rick Nelson, The Judds (whose 'Tears for You' sold over 3 million copies), Delbert McClinton, Chris Farlowe, Nick Lowe, Gary Brooker, Dr Feelgood and The Searchers.
