One Man's Treasure and Two Of Diamonds

One gold and one red LP

Mick Harvey's first two solo albums available together!

Limited time album downloads included

Mick Harvey's acclaimed One Man's Treasure, originally released in 2005, is a collection of original tracks alongside covers of tracks chosen for Mick's personal connection with each track. These covers include "First St. Blues" by country-pop singer Lee Hazelwood, Tim Buckley's "The River," and "Mother Of Earth" by Jeffrey Lee Pierce of The Gun Club.

The creation of One Man's Treasure unravelled spontaneously, the majority of the album was recorded at Harvey's home studio with him explaining, "It was something I was doing to entertain myself."

After receiving words of encouragement from Mute's Daniel Miller, Harvey subsequently finished One Man's Treasure at Atlantis Studios in Melbourne, using his time there to add instrumental and mixing refinements.

The second album included is Harvey's Two Of Diamonds, released in 2007. Following the positive reaction to One Man's Treasure, Harvey was reinvigorated to record a new album. This time his band accompanied Harvey: Rosie Westbrook (double bass) and fellow Bad Seeds James Johnston (organ and guitar) and Thomas Wydler (drums), along with guest musicians Rob Ellis from P.J. Harvey's band (piano/drums) and Julitha Ryan (piano) of Melbourne's Silver Ray.

In true Mick Harvey fashion, Two of Diamonds is an eclectic collection of songs: obscure classics combined with original Harvey compositions, including "Out of Time Man" which featured prominently in various TV Series including Breaking Bad, Orphan Black and The Tourist. Arrangements were kept straightforward, in a deceptively effortless manner, for an emotionally powerful punch, passionately delivered from the heart.
