Deke Leonard - Kamikaze - CD
Deke Leonard's second solo album was recorded between June 1973 and January 1974 at Rockfield studios, Chipping Norton studios and Olympic studios and featured Brian Breeze (guitar), Martin Ace (bass), Keith Hodge (drums), Dave Charles (drums) and Man members Micky Jones, Terry Williams and Ken Whaley. "Kamikaze" charted in the UK and eventually led to Deke re-joining MAN later that year. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features four bonus tracks, three of which are previously unreleased, drawn from the B-side of a single and sessions for "Kamikaze". These include the first recorded version of the later MAN classic "California, Silks & Satins" written by Deke Leonard and Malcolm Morley.
