Recordings

The Granny Lee band recorded its first CD, courtesy of Trevor Horn and Jill Sinclair of ZTT, in 1985. Two CDs, were produced from live performances at the Leeds Club some twenty plus years later.  Most recently, to commemorate Michael's 80th birthday in March 2022 his son, Andrew hired a professional recording studio and invited all the former band members from over the past forty years for a reunion session.
