Abbey Road Sessions – (Album)

On 7th September 1992, Mike Peters led his new band The Poets Of Justice into the famous Studio 2 at London’s Abbey Road. An all-day 24-hour session had been booked, of which the morning and afternoon sessions were spent setting levels and recording a first initial run through of the songs. The second half and evening session allowed Mike and the Poets to record the songs again, only this time before a specially invited audience of 250 fans

An album of these recordings was released in March 1997 on Twenty First Recording Company catalogue number 21C003. These recordings are the only ones that feature Ethan Johns on any releases
