For almost a decade he was John Lee Hooker's bandleader. He also recorded with the boogie man on a couple of his later releases. And Mike has also several albums out under his own name. An LP and a CD were also released on CrossCut. He belongs to the Ukiah group of players from Northern California. Back in the old days he was an original member of the Charles Ford Band that was featuring Robben Ford. And Robben is supporting Mike on fifty per cent of this album. Mike's music is rooted in the sound of the Charles Ford band. Excellent. If only he was a better singer ... MICHAEL OSBORN - gtr/voc, ROBBEN FORD - gtr, BILL RHOADES - hca/voc, D.K. STEWART - pno, TOM SZELL - bass, JOHN MOORE - drums.
