It`s probably not so many that are familiar with the 1970s progressive rock band Klaatu? But, actually that was a very nice band with lots of very good songs. Terry Edward Draper is a Canadian musician who was the drummer in that band and one of three songwriters. Draper also had a construction business with a specialty in roofing!
Draper co-wrote the song Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft, which was not only successful with his band Klaatu, but it also became a Top-40 hit, when The Carpenters covered it in 1977. Draper also co-wrote the Klaatu song December Dream in 1981, which was a tribute to John Lennon.
Klaatu disbanded in 1982, following the release of their last studio album, Magentalane (1981) and since then writer, drummer and vocalist Terry Draper has released a number of solo albums. The new album In My Garden is a compilation album of tracks from some of those albums, singles and a couple of new songs. And this is the first album Draper has released on vinyl as a solo artist. Draper has collected older songs and arranged them into an order that not only makes sense but creates a whole new album.
