HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
Mike Vickers is a man who wears a coat of many colors: original Manfred Mann guitarist, A&R man for EMI, arranger and producer extraordinaire, composer and the beat goes on. He left Manfred Mann in 1966 and by 1967 he had released his debut LP. Long before the likes of The Mike Flowers Pops (remember their 15 minutes in the 90’s?) Mike’s album was, and still is, a kitsch classic. Utilizing a selection of interpretation’s of “easy” versions of then contemporary standards alongside a smattering of his own compositions, “I Wish I Were A Group Again” is slice of 1967 documenting when hip met camp. What is interesting about it is that Vickers was a 25-“year old former member of a pop group, not an old school composer or arranger capitalizing on the “young sound” like Enoch Light or Tony Hatch”.
