The Orinoco Kid CD gets individual release
Mike Batt’s compilation CD, The Orinoco Kid, will be re-released in May. It was previously only available as part of The Mike Batt Music Cube, the 16-disc box set released in December 2009.
The final disc will now be sold separately in a double CD edition with the 2008 album A Songwriter’s Tale.
Mike Batt said about his box set: “I have added new sleeve notes to accompany each album and I’ve been totally honest about how artistically successful or otherwise I consider each album or track to have been.”
The Orinoco Kid contains “Batt’s own selection of early singles and Wombles curios”.
The full tracklisting is:
- Summertime City (With The New Edition)
- Madhouse Rag
