About five years ago, I learned they were touring together again - though I doubt they'll ever visit my part of the country - and purchased this and two other CDs.
This particular album is pristine, truly a work of love and art. It jarred me at first to hear the new arrangements of old favorites, but I have grown used to them and now like them as much as the originals. Yes, I sing along in my car.
And in listening, I remember what it was like to be 16 and yearning to conquer the world, fall in love, visit Paris and live! Yet, the music reflects my life today, too. It is truly a gift to have these two musicians re-record some of their best material for the grownups we've all become.
If you are already a Chad and Jeremy fan, rest assured you are not wasting your money. And yes, the money play -- A Summer Song -- is there along with Yesterday's Gone and Distant Shores, but you're also getting some of their best covers and original songs, some newly arranged, from past albums. I love it to bits.
ARK-eology delivers -- in spades. You will not be disappointed.
To anyone reading this who may be unfamiliar with Chad and Jeremy. These two guys are a class act whose hit, A Summer Song, is one of the prettiest ballads written and much beloved by those of us lucky enough to have heard it when it was first released. To find out more about them and their music, go to their page on MySpace.
This latest CD follows the normal pattern of reworked material, that has been produced and performed with perfection. With: "Summer Song", "September in the Rain", and "Yesterday's Gone" all the big hits are here, sounding better than ever. Instead of new songs, this time out C & J, are using album tracks from their sixties albums, and spotlighting them along side the hits.
Sparkling versions of: "When And If I Can", "Rest In Peace", "The Ark", and "Distant Shores" are wonderful examples of good pop music can be when performed by the masters. With acoustic guitars, piano, orchestrations and perfect harmony, these artists have barely lost an ounce of steam in the past four decades.
If I had a wish, it would be to hear some of Chad & Jeremy's new songs and that amazing version of "Purple Haze" that they perform at shows in 2009. Chad & Jeremy are no: Nostalga Package of the 1960's. But, they are a vibrant and experienced duo of musicans who know how to entertain young & old folks alike, in the old fashion tradition.....With talent and class.
