Limited purple vinyl LP – only 200 copies!
FREAK OF NATURE was Mike Tramp’s band creation just after White Lion disbanded. The sound was arguably darker and harder than
what Tramp was known for from White Lion, but Freak Of Nature, completed by bassist Jerry Best, guitarists Kenny Korade
and Dennis Chick, and drummer Johnny Haro, released two studio albums and one demos and outtakes collection to much fan praise
and press attention, making hard rock history.
Now, years after being absent from the market, Mighty Music will re-release all three Freak Of Nature albums: “Freak Of Nature”
(1993), “Gathering Of Freaks” (1994), and “Outcasts” (1998) in several collectors editions, both in digipack CD and coloured vinyl
(”Outcast” CD only – NOT vinyl) with restored artwork and remastered.
“After 45 years serving rock’n’roll to the fullest. I can honestly say the magic and brotherhood within the four walls of a band, only
comes once. No matter the excitement of the dream that came true when I joined my first band Mabel as a teenager and all that
followed. No matter that huge worldwide success I achieved with White Lion, writing the eternal hit “When The Children Cry” and the
everlasting rock classic “Wait” with Vito Bratta. The gigantic tours we played with KISS, Aerosmith, AC/DC and Ozzy Osbourne”, Mike
“I can honestly say that the three years Freak OF Nature was a recording and touring band. I experienced the true definition of what a
Band is. From writing the songs as a band standing in a circle facing each other, no more or no less than the guy. Giving each other
the respect to handling their own instrument without interference. The warrior attitude “One For All And All For One” when we took
to the road and conquered every challenge we faced, at times it seems like it was daily. It was and is the real deal. When I listen back
to the two albums we recorded together and also the remains on “Outcasts”, it is both with a big smile and tears in my eyes, that I
can say, this is what a rock’n’roll band is supposed to be like. And even if I could, I would not change a single thing, it was the best
days of my life”, Tramp concludes.
