Ephar ~ Show Me
February 2001

Show me is a compilation of original songs resulting from collaborations between Keith Farwell and Mike Raine (who together make Ephar). Keith was mainly responsible for the lyrical content while Mike dealt mainly with musical aspects.


The Craggs ~ The Craggs

The Craggs play original folk music that reflects the environment and relaxed lifestyle of Tasmania. The music is contemporary folk that has undertones of jazz.

circular road

Neil Gardner ~ Circular Road
December 2001

Neil has recorded five albums; "Anthem for Wednesday", "Said the Blackbird", Gardner's Ginger Mixture", "Star-crossed Plovers" and now "Circular Road". While the first took many years each to record, this was finished in head-spinningly quick time, less than a year. Read what Drumbeat had to say about it.

to the ranelagh collection

mike raine ~ the ranelagh collection
December 1999

Mike's first solo CD is a compilation of songs that cover over twenty years of writing. They were all originally recorded (very laboriously and with considerable juggling of tracks) on four track before being converted to digital for this CD.

to details of shallow man

mike raine ~ the quintessential shallow man
November 2000

This is Mike's second solo CD. Like his first, "the ranelagh collection", it contains seventeen songs that span about twenty years of writing. The songs were all recorded over the last half of 1999 and the first half of 2000. In keeping with the theme of the first CD, these songs give an insight into Mike's febrile and prurient imagination.

to details of 'accidentally yours'

mike raine ~ accidentally yours

"accidentally yours" is Mike's third solo effort. Recorded throughout 2001, it features song-writing collaborations with a number of friends and acquaintances; Keith Farwell, Glen Sward, George Kennedy and Deanna Petrushevski. Like previous CDs, there is a wide range of tastes and styles represented here.
