(Classic Rock) Mike And The Mechanics will be marking the 25th anniversary of their signature track 'The Living Years' with two releases on January 20 via Universal.
Genesis man Mike Rutherford's collective were formed in 1985 and launched a series of top-selling singles including Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground), All I Need Is A Miracle, Word Of Mouth and Over My Shoulder.
But The Living Years, from the album Living Years released in 1988, took the band to a new level – resulting in top-ten billings across the world and receiving a Grammy nomination. It was co-written by BA Robertson and sung by Paul Carrack.
Rutherford says: "I'm proud of the writing and recording of so many of the songs, and of all the musicians involved, along with the producers, engineers and technical staff. Especially Paul Carrack and Paul Young, two of the finest voices. more on this story
