Pete Atkin (born 22 August 1945) is a British singer-songwriter and radio producer notable for his 1970s musical collaborations with Clive James and for producing the BBC Radio 4 series This Sceptred Isle. Background information. Atkin released another privately pressed album in 99 copies entitled The Party's Moving On in 1969. Essex Music funded the recording of fourteen tracks in 1969. The producer, Don Paul, was a friend of the disc jockey Kenny Everett, who played, amongst others, the song "Master of the Revels" which is the first track on his first album Beware of the Beautiful Stranger. I See The Joker, Sessionman's Blues (both new versions) – RCA 2517 (1975). Horfield To Hollywood – CD, (2000).
Pete Atkin is one of the relatively unheralded singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s. Baffling really, considering his lyrics are by the great Australian critic and poet Clive James, and that his melodies have a lilting oh-so-English quality reminiscent of Kevin Ayers, Nick Drake and even Cat Stevens. He's severely under-represented on youtube so I've decided to upload a few of his songs.
The Joker is the eighth studio album by Steve Miller Band. The album marked a period of significant change for the group as the band abandoned their music for a more melodic, smooth rock/blues sound. Perhaps not coincidentally, it was also their first solid commercial success due to the strong radio-play of the title track. The title track took 19 days to record.
Clive James is best known for his extensive television work, but he is also an accomplished poet and novelist.
