Michael Francesco Puccioni (April 26, 1961 – January 30, 2009), better known under his stage name Mike Francis, was an Italian singer and composer, best known for his 1982 disco hit "Survivor". He was born in Florence.
Mike Francis formed his first band at age 14 with schoolmates from l'Istituto di Studi Americano in Rome. He had his first hit with "Survivor" in 1982 and went on to record ten studio albums.
Francis died aged 47 on January 30, 2009 of lung cancer in Rome.
His last compilation album "The very best of Mike Francis (All was missing)" was released just days before his death.
As part of the month long celebration of the first year anniversary of this blog, I present to all of you the best Mike Francis medley compilation of all his earlier albums up to until 1991. Early last year I made another compilation similar to this but this the most complete and if not the best of them all.
I used all the original italian vinyl pressings in making this compilation. The original mix was recorded, enhanced with DBX processors and digitally mastered in 44.1 khz, 16 bit, 1411 kbps format.
DBX Enhanced Digital Stereo 44.1 khz, 320 kbps, 197 mb, 1:26:10
