1 - COOPER, MIKE - OH REALLY !? - (LP) 
TRADING PLACES


The guitarist and singer-songwriter Mike Cooper was a key figure in the British blues boom of the late 1960s. Born in Reading in 1942, Cooper began playing guitar as a teen in local skiffle groups. After seeing Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee perform in 1961, Cooper caught the blues bug and began to play the harmonica and formed The Blues Committee, supporting John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Alexis Korner and Long John Baldry, while Cooper was also performing solo. Acquiring a lap steel guitar in 1963, he studied Blind Boy Fullers work and in 1965, teamed with Dave Hall to support Bert Jansch, Al Stewart and others; after releasing work on the Kennet, Sydisc and Matchbox labels, Cooper soon began incorporating country blues aspects into his work, drawing from Son House and Mississippi Fred McDowell, as well as non-blues artists such as David Bowie, John Martyn, Roy Harper and Dave Van Ronk. Then, in late 1968, Cooper was approached by producer Peter Eden, resulting in debut album Oh Readlly!? for Pye; aside from agreeable covers of Son Houses "Death Letter" and Blind Boy Fullers "Bad Luck Blues," the rest of the disc is pure Cooper, with his deft picking accompanied by Derek Halls guitar work only on "Leadhearted Blues" and "Electric Chair."

2 - COOPER, MIKE - RELUCTANT SWIMMER / VIRTUAL SURFER - (LP) 
DISCREPANT


The 'icon of post-everything', Mike Cooper, returns to Discrepant with a recording of a live set recorded at the Controindicazioni Festival of Improvised Music in Rome in 2003 .The music moves very slowly through four movements: Reluctant Swimmer'', @Movies is Magic'', Virtual Swimmer'' and "Dolphins''. 'Floating in out of the exotic ether and disappearing like smoke, engulfed in the alien hugeness of nature... a very elegant set by a visionary artist.' Mike Cooper says 'the first half is played on my old 1920s National tri-plate lapsteel guitar and the second half on my vietnamese electric lap steel. I also sing two songs along the way. "Movies is Magic'' by Van Dyke Parks and "Dolphins" by Freid Neil. It was the first time I had ever sung the last song.'
