Paul Harbison introduced me to Michael Lucas and his awesome music around 1972. I wasn't prepared for the extraordinary talent of this singer-songwriter but quickly became a friend and avid fan. I haven't seen Mike in over thirty years, but when I think of him, two words come to mind...humble and spiritual. These are far more than words in the case of Mike Lucas. As I fondly recalled in the liner notes of the FRM ALBUM, he and I played live one day on Denver's premier free-form radio station KFML...circa 1974, and two years later, were both thrilled to be counted among the eleven artists to grace the KBPI Colorado Album. Michael's offering on the LP was I AM HAWK, a powerfully
visual song which he later revisited as a member of the ROBIN BANKS BAND. To my knowledge, only a couple of rare recordings survived from that period. Upon discovering my recordings of
Michael Lucas's live radio performances of RAIN TREE and I AM HAWK, I felt compelled to include them on the Front Room Music Albums - Volumes 1 and 2, respectively. Now, you too can enjoy Mike's marvelous gift!
