“The album title is – 100% Blues, Almost – I have also written most of the songs for the rockabilly album.

“I have more or less sorted out a worldwide deal for physical distribution of the new stuff and the back catalogue too.

“Mick has written about 480 pages for the forthcoming Mungo Jerry book, You Don’t Have To Be In The Army To Fight In The War, so far and we are working out how to include all of the facts that have so far been left out”.
