Editorial Reviews

Probably the Last of the San Francisco "Acid Bands", Sons of Champlin Produced Psychedelic Rock with a Big Twist of Horns in the Mix. Though Obscure at the Time, They Developed a Hometown Audience that were Fanatic Enough to Sustain them Into the 70's. Only Stands to Reason that after their Original Demise, Founding Member Bill Champlin Would Join Chicago. This Edition of their Debut Includes the Bonus Tracks Originally from a Promo Only 7" Single that was More Acid Vision Than Religious, "Jesus is Coming Parts One and 2".

Maybe this wasn't Bill Champlin's favorite Sons album, but the Sons were Bill Graham's favorite band. If the Dead, the Airplane, Quicksilver or the Youngbloods we're in town but not playing that night they went and heard the Sons. Mickey Hart said the Sons were the most talented of all the San Francisco bands. Carlos Santana said if it wern't for Terry Haggerty (Sons lead guitar) he'd still be just a blues guitar player.
I love all the songs on this album but the killer standouts are Boomp Boomp Chop, You Can Fly and Love of a Woman. For you Rock/Funk/Jazz/R&B/Soul fans, BUY IT.

The year following the release of "Loosen Up Naturally" was marked both by great highs and some incredible confusion for the Sons. Unlike the tunes on their first album, which had been in their live show set lists for months or even years, most of the tunes on "The Sons" were written specifically for this album and this lack of familiarity with the material shows. Only on "Boomp Boomp Chop" do they find a groove as compelling as most of the material on their debut album. This album is a chronicle of the band members' attempts to seize some control back from Bill Champlin, who wrote all but two of the tunes on the first album. Listening now, some 30 odd years later, I find myself surprised that Geoff Palmer's tune "Country Girl" actually stands up better than the offerings from Tim Cain and Terry Haggerty. Geoff's vocals aren't much to shout about, but the arrangement provides a vivid illustration of why he remains with Bill Champlin in the band today while the all of the others have moved on.

This CD is a great addition to my collection. It sounds better than the LP I owned back in the '60s!

This was an album that I enjoyed more years ago than I care to admit too.Great music from the past. The brass included by the Sons I beleive inspired many inovations in rock. ie. CTA,BS&t and more. It was good to hear again. If you are 60 years old,and loved music as a true HIPPIE, You will love hearing this selection once again.
