Em 1971 o trabalho já havia começado no Astral Navigations. Thundermother chegou a gravar em 1970. No verão Global Village foi gravada ao vivo em Wakefield's Thornes Park. O Astral foi gravado em setembro.

O resto do Astral foi gravado em 1971. Alguns detalhes dessas gravações foram capturadas em filme pelo irmão de Mike, Kevin, e lançado como o vídeo do Windows Astral, em 1991. Jumble Lane foi lançado em julho de 71. Mike conseguiu Bill Nelson para gravar o que seria o  Northern Dream . Neste período foram gravados  Legend of the Kingfisher (já postado aqui no blog) do Gygafo ,Northern Dream , e o início do LP Ode. Muitas bandas locais foram registradas. Em 1975, Mike acaba com o  Holyground, gravando Tears On The Console, como seu canto do cisne.

Em 1988, Mike começou a reeditar os discos do Holyground, com isso logo ele se anima e começa a escrever e gravar novas músicas. Music from the 1990's foi lançado em And Strangeness And Charm , e um novo álbum, In And Out Of Time foi iniciado em 2000.

Mike Levon, dono do Holyground, morreu pacificamente em 04 de setembro de 2011.
