      Mike Johnson Song Folio * MAJ120801 * $19.95  *  ISMN 979-0-800026-00-3

   This new Mike Johnson songbook was published in December 2008, released in January 2009, and included in the Recording Arts Reading Room?s permanent music collection at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. on 17 July 2009.

   This 22-song line-up contains some co-writes. Song No.21 was a poem written by his friend Leo P. Maimone that Mike re-wrote and then composed a wonderful score to. Songs No. 7 to 17 are original Mike Johnson songs that were re-composed by the late Johnny Meyer of Jupiter Records in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Thus the "II" designation behind the titles. For a brief period in the 1990s Mike reached what he considered a stale point in his writing and in the process of experimenting with new arrangements and melodies for some of his old songs, he happened across Meyer [songwriter of "Shatzie" for Lawrence Welk] also known locally as "The Singin' Postman" [his day-job] and interested him in composing new melodies for these songs. Also included is a 3-page photo-enchanced highlight on Mike's music activities and his music discography.
