Mike Hurst became a record producer more by luck than judgment. When the Springfield's broke up in October 1963 he started his own band with Jimmy Page, Albert Lee & Tony Ashton but found little success! So in 1965 he became a record producer initially working for Andrew Loog Oldham & Mickie Most before finding in 1965 a very young Cat Stevens. He then became 'hot' & over the next five years produced Spencer Davis Group, Marc Bolan, Manfred Mann, PP Arnold, to name a few. This album was originally recorded in 1969 with a 45-piece orchestra. 2003 re-mastered release. Angel Air.
