This is the followup to "Celebrate Me Home". It is excellent! This is one of the albums I would desperately love to hear beautifully re-mastered. The awesome Stevie Nicks sings on a big hit and Kenny's voice is stellar. Celebrate Me Home and Nightwatch go together like a hand and glove.

NIGHTWATCH, along with CELEBRATE ME HOME and HIGH ADVENTURE, is one of Kenny Loggins' best solo albums ever. Of course, his material with Loggins & Messina is still the best stuff he ever did, but these three solo albums show that there's more to Loggins than just being a movie soundtrack artist. If you get these three albums along with the Loggins & Messina stuff and KEEP THE FIRE, you'll have the perfect library of Kenny Loggins albums.

Kenny Loggins' debut solo release Celebrate Me Home was such a soulful,jazzy affair that it must have been a bit of a hard act to follow up on. I imagine with the idea of playing it safe in terms of recognition he again enlisted Bob James to produce this album. Either way you cut it this album could'nt be any more different and unique from Kenny's first album than one could possibly imagine. The wispy breeziness of the previous album is replaced by not only a musical but a production sound thats a lot more varied and diverse in flavor and isn't quite as easy to pinpoint as you might think. It isn't exactly jazz fusion or folk/rock but at the same time it isn't entirely Westcoast AOR either. The title song is an elongated jazzy pieces where spacy electric keyboards and bass lines all play in the same river over Kenny's scaling vocal licks all around. It's moody atmosphere certainly suggests the same idea as the title implies. This album also includes more stronger rock and blues elements,especially on the more tough rocking "Easy Driver" and "Down N' Dirty" that features rougher guitars,blues harp and gritty vocals from Loggins than even his rocker songs of the past suggest. In his cover of "Down In The Boondocks" Loggins adds a strong New Orleans styled funk groove to the occasion and it winds up being a great match for an already well written song. Hearing the somewhat radio worn "Whenever I Call You "Friend" helps me to realize how wonderfully multi sectioned this song is and how each section kind of indicates a progression of genre-from jazzy R&B to AOR pop and back again in the change of a chord. "Wait A Little While" and "Somebody Knows" both take on the same approch of multi part little pop songs. Kenny's version of "What A Fool Believes" actually differs musically from the Doobie's more rhythmically consistant version with more of an obvious jazzy approch and rhythmic variations. The final song "Angelique" takes a cue from the moodiness of the title track to create a bass/keyboard driven and mildy operatic mini rock/jazz/soul/pop symphony. This is an album that presents not only a different sound from the debut but a feeling as well: a different Kenny Loggins. And that he had more to say after this really says a lot for this albums place in his long and varied musical history.

CD arrived much sooner than expected. It came in perfect condition. Great music, probably Kenny Loggins best work. If you've never listened to this, you don't know what you're missing.

Love the blend of styles on this album. My favorite by Kenny. He steps out of the box. Kinda jazzy, but definitely electric too.

If you like Classic Country and Kenny Loggins music then you'll feel right at home ith this cdnd you can't go wrong with it,yet it is by far not as great as Celebrate Me Home or Keep The Fire,yet still a great album with Kenny Loggins doing Country like tunes.

Buy the Album because it is just fantastic.
