Having read Mike's book, I've been busy updating my cd collection, frustrated at the good music I'd missed. I've also looked at a lot of videos on YouTube (thank you rcpinsa!) and was moved to put finger to keyboard tonight to comment on a submission for 'Another Night'

"This track is just one example of the phenomenal output from The Searchers Sire Sessions Rockfield recordings 1979-80, which has been a recent revelation for me because the entire body of work missed my ears completely at the time. Word just didn't get out! Imagine if there had been the Internet and social networking in those days and the band hadn't had to rely on the fickle butterflies that go by the name of record companies and DJs. It was all there on the Sire Sessions; great production, intelligent track choices, superb musicianship and the seriously good Mike Pender singing out of his skin!"

Hi Mike
I think you should re record "Solitaire" with "Working Man", I like the live tracks too.

I think you should re record "Solitaire" and also "Working Man", totally brilliant performances on the solid Silver 60's show.

Mike ask Waterstones if they want you to do a signing session.

I never thought that one day I would walk into a Waterstones and find my autobiography in the same section as greats like Clapton, Jimmy Page, Hendrix and all the other names that jump out at you!

For all you guys who bought my book I would like to send my sincere thanks for getting it on to the shelves at Waterstones!

I think I might just go and buy one myself!!

Listening to the words of 'When I Was A Boy' from the new ELO album, I could almost hear Mike singing it!

I read 'The Search For Myself' this week. It's a fascinating read and I was glued from cover-to-cover. I learned about the 1986 single 'It's Over', which due to low airplay has stayed under my radar for 29 years! I've found it on YouTube now and I love it should've been a hit for certain.

Please pass on my best wishes to Mike for his continued success with the book and the band.

'The Search For Myself'

This is a book I enjoyed enormously. It is compelling, interesting and informative, written with warmth, clarity and typical Liverpool humour and is lavishly illustrated.

It charts the meteoric rise of one of the sixties' finest groups and the disintegration of the complex personal relationships of the members.

It offers a perspective on the public and private life of Mike Pender, a fascinating and influential pop legend, with many reminiscences of the colourful characters he met along the way.

Mike Pender was the heartbeat of the Searchers and I recommend the book unreservedly - it is a must for 60s' music fans.

Hi everyone
Do listen to Mike on BBC Radio Leeds - he was the guest for one hour yesterday on the Martin Kelner show. You will enjoy it and be very interested in Mike's choice of records too.
