5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Garrigan's Start at Chapel Hill May 27, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album. I have one of his best,most collectable and rare. You can agree that as he got his start playing coffee shops around Chapel Hill, N.C. Then played with anyone who asked him to jam with him, hoping his magic talent would rub off on them. He would always talk to you at U.N.C. after his shows instead of running home. He formed Collapsis and strung an electric guitar around his neck, but it wasn't his calling yet.
I am putting the cd "mike: the lessons of autum" for sale on ebay on may 27, 2004. It will have his pictures and more facts. Just browse under cd's Mike Garrigan .

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly The Best Artist Ever September 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mike Garrigan is, without a doubt, a musical talent unlike anything out there. His work is very well written, both musically and lyrically. It has real emotion and real depth. It's a wonder that his solo albums haven't caught on, and that Collapsis didn't become much more popular than they were while they existed.
On this album specifically, Mike went with a full band electric sound. This, his third solo album, is a depature from his first two albums which were much more acoustic. These two original albums are at present only available direct from his website. However, this album is still excellent, and he sounds just as good singing over electric guitar as he does over acoustic.
"Rusted Radio," "She Alone," "A Better Place," "Sour Milk," "See You Tonight," and "Don't Fade Away" are the more serious but still upbeat tracks. "Summer Machine," "Sigourney Weaver," and "God Lives in My Backyard" fit more as the very upbeat songs, and have are about less serious topics. "4th of July" is rather low key, and mildly melancholy. "Throwaway, A Race Horse" is by far the most low key and nearly heartwrenching song on the album, depending on how you interpret the lyrics. I do know some people who take it as a song of hope as well.
In any case, this is a brilliant album. Expect more great work from Mike in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent August 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mike Garrigan is devoted to the craft of music, and it's shown in the studio journal for this album, and in the music itself. The album versions of songs such as "rusted radio" and especially "don't fade away" outshone their original versions that he posted in the downloads section of his website. The album is a breath of fresh air from what else is out there. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year!! October 21, 2002
By Zach
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mike Garrigan's "The Promise of Summer" has won my vote for 2002 album of the year. It's very rare that an album comes out that is both a lyrical and musical masterpiece. Every song on this album is memorable and catchy. This is a perfect CD to sing along to in your car and/or relax to at home. Mike is living up to what he started...he made the fall album, "The Lessons of Autumn" and now he has the summer album. Soon we will have the winter and spring albums. Can't wait! If you are a fan of Mike's other bands, Collapsis and Athenaeum or if you're just tired of all ... being played on the radio. Then you have to add this CD to your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Promise Realized October 14, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mike Garrigan's newest album, "Promise of Summer" manages to capture the mood of impending/ongoing summer adventures. This is a great companion to his earlier "Lessons of Autumn". This album can be enjoyed on many different levels. It makes excellent background music around the house, you can drive and sing along, or just sit and let the music flow over you. Garrigan's subtle vocals, layered guitars and thoughtful lyrics make every track worth the price. Now that Mike has tackled Summer and Autumn, can Winter and Spring be far behind? I hope not!!
