Mickie D's Unicorn was the first artist signed for, and released on, IC Records, the label Klaus Schulze founded in 1978. Mickie's lyrics told of fairies and witches, dragons and knights, an occasional pot of gold and - of course - unicorns. And the last two songs on the album, "West Of The Moon" & "A: Elbereth", are a clear reference to J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord Of The Rings".
Besides doing all the vocals, on this album Mickie D plays Fender Stratocaster, Mini Moog, ARP Odyssee, Mellotron and Farfisa Synthorchestra.
