2017 release. Reissue; originally released in 2011. This debut solo release Melodies from Lord Echo (aka Mike Fabulous), is a roaring romp through his crazy world of sound; a magical, meandering journey through Afro-disco, soul reggae, Latin boogie, and Ethio-jazz. Those familiar with Echo's prodigious studio wizardry will be pleased to discover that this album contains his finest work to date. Never before has Echo combined with such panache, his penchant for heavy rhythms, along with his uncanny knack for subtle song-sculpting. On Melodies Echo is joined by a plethora of notable colleagues from every Wellington band you can imagine, but this time it's all about Echo. His remarkable talents are everywhere in abundance. The studio boffin has put down his soldering iron and picked up his tambourine in order to create a mighty album of towering tunes. Features William Ricketts, Toby Laing, Bays Road Horns, Lucien Johnson, Lisa Tomlins, and Andy Christiansen.
