Description

After the break-up of the Tickle, Mick Wayne formed Junior''s Eyes in early 1968, initially with drummer John ''Candy'' Carr and then with John ''Honk'' Lodge (bass) and Steve Chapman (drums). They soon recorded a debut single with the help of pianist Rick Wakeman and producer Tony Visconti. The unit evolved with singer Graham ''Grom'' Kelly and organist John Redfern in late 1968 and began work on an album. Battersea Power Station was released in June 1969 and was a landmark work, featuring a continuous suite of songs on the albums first side and individual songs forming the flip side. It is now rightly regarded as a classic album of the period. Juniors Eyes have also entered into the annals of rock history through their association with DAVID BOWIE. In June 1969 Mick Wayne and Rick Wakeman were among the guest musicians who recorded Bowies Space Oddity single and for Bowies subsequent album a new line-up of Junior''s Eyes comprising Mick Wayne (guitar), John ''Honk'' Lodge (bass), John Cambridge (drums) and Tim Renwick (guitar, flute, recorder) comprised Bowies backing band. Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this 2 disc expanded edition of Battersea Power Station includes 14 bonus tracks, (2 previously unreleased), drawn from singles and a previously unreleased BBC session from October 1968. The release restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay .
