More Info:

First-ever complete 3CD anthology of cult late 60s UK psychedelic pop band Mirage. Features all of their singles (including pseudonymous releases), numerous demos, previously-unreleased recordings and BBC sessions. After serving an apprenticeship on the mid-60s Hertfordshire beat scene, The Mirage became house band at Beatles' publisher Dick James' Oxford Street demo studio. After forming a friendship with The Hollies, The Mirage cut a couple of singles for CBS before James and his regular business partner, Kinks/Troggs manager Larry Page, oversaw the band's subsequent, heavily Beatles-influenced releases on the Philips and Page One labels. The Mirage then moved over to Mervyn Conn's Carnaby label, where they cut a single as Portebello Explosion before releasing a 1970 album under the name Jawbone. A lavish 3CD digipack set, 'The World Goes On Around You' is the first-ever complete Mirage anthology, featuring all of their singles, the Jawbone album, numerous studio out-takes, alternative versions and BBC sessions. The package includes some great previously unseen Mirage photos and a new 7000-word essay on the band that's based around a new interview with guitarist Ray Glynn, who speaks for the first time of their involvement with the film Georgy Girl and their appearance alongside Jefferson Airplane at the first Isle of Wight Festival.
