2004 Mike Tramp – Songs I Left Behind

Tramp, Mike 2004Songs I Left Behind is the fourth solo album by former Freak of Nature and current White Lion lead singer, Mike Tramp. Released in 2004 the album came out only one year after his last studio album More to Life Than This.

The album is a collection of songs recorded in the last seven years and never before released until now. Mike Tramp decided to look through his archives and compile some of the songs that were either demoed or recorded during the sessions of his solo-albums and simply were “left behind” for various reasons.

The album features bonus alternate versions of “Falling Down” and “Darkness”, both originally released on his second solo album Recovering the Wasted Years.

Following the release of this solo album Tramp took a break from his solo career to focus more on the new White Lion. After the release of a White Lion/Mike Tramp box set and the album “Last Roar” which were also released in 2004, the new White Lion released a live album Rocking the USA in 2005 and began recording what would become White Lion’s first original studio album in sixteen years, Return of the Pride.
