The self-titled Mike + The Mechanics' 1985 debut reached number 26 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts and is best known for the three hit singles that were released from this collection, "All I Need Is A Miracle", "Taken In", and "Silent Running". The band was created by Genesis guitarist and co-founding member Mike Rutherford.
"Silent Running", featuring lead vocals by Paul Carrack was the single that launched the success of Mike + The Mechanics reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the up-tempo "All I Need Is A Miracle", sung by Paul Young reached #5 on the charts. "Taken In" - a ballad that's bettered by Paul Young's genuine emotional charm - rose to #32 on the Hot 100 and #7 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Singles chart. The songwriting throughout the album is top-notch including the marvelous "A Call To Arms" which began as a Genesis song, co-written by bandmates Phil Collins and Tony Banks.
