I am not a new fan of BC, I met him in 1968 on the west coast when I opened for his band "The Sons of Champlin" and was very excited when he joined and saved Chicago by bringing his soulful vocals to that great band. Of course there are those who will say "He is no Terry Kath", but he is not trying to be Terry, just sing with his own style. Making him as unique and in demand vocally as Michael McDonald was in that same era. On hearing this album I was greatly disappointed that it took 33 years to "discover". My pet peeve is that commercial radio has grossly let the record buying public down. This album and many others was missed, and it is a sad story for the industry.

This solo album by Sons of Champlin leader, Bill Champlin was released in about 1978. Bill is a mulit-musician, who can play lead guitar, sing and play keyboards as well. As his name suggests, he was the driving force behind the Bay Area group the Sons of Champlin.

This CD was produced by the legendary David Foster and includes most of Toto as his backup band, and Jay Graydon on guitar. Needless to say, the tracks all rock.

On vocals it is Bill and Michael MdDonald of Doobie Brothers fame and Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates. Needless to say, all the vocals are superb.

The Liner Notes are also terrific and include all the tracks, dates, and a brief interview with Bill. This is an English import and the sound quality is excellent.

The tracks include"

What Good is Love--5 stars, an real ass kicking opening cut by Jay Graydon, which features some of the best guitar work, vocals, and arrangments in the CD.

I Don't Want You Anymore--4 Stars, a funky R&B bass oriented song which spotlights Bill's soul genre.

We Both Tried. 2 Stars, a forlone ballad about a failed love. A little sappy for my tastes.

Yo Mama 4 Stars. Another bass oriented R&B song

Fly With Me. 4 Stars. A nice cut reminiscent of the Sons.

Love is Forever. 2 Stars. Another ballad. Too sappy.

Careless. 2 Stars. Another ballad

Elayne. 2 Stars. A love gone bad ode to Elayne.

Keys to the Kingdom. 2 Stars. Another ballad.

All and all this is a marvelous CD with previous unavailable cuts available only on phonograph records.

Popular with lovers of California "West Coast" pop this is Bill Champlin's debut album. It's a shame he didn't get the success as his fellow Chicago member Peter Cetera did. Most of the Toto guys are featured here as well as two of the fathers of this genre David Foster and Jay Graydon. Sounding like a cross between Kenny Loggins and Stephen Bishop,

This album got very little air play when it came out and that is a shame. A very gifted singer friend turned me on to this when it came out, we listened to it together, and he just shook his head and said, "Why isn't this thing at the top of the charts?" Every player is at the top of his game on this record...buy it!
