Pleasant follow-up to his respected debut kicks off with Chuck’s trademark layered Brian Wilson harmonies, this time an acappella number simply entitled ‘Anthem’. The hard-driving ‘I Remember’ is probably the heaviest thing Chuck has attempted, while ‘Somethin’ Supernatural’ provides a slow harmonica blues rock excursion – both tracks feature fine electric guitar work from John Linn. ‘Return’ takes a successful stab at country rock, with steel guitar courtesy of Al Perkins. In between are the usual reliable assortments of soft rock (‘Callin’ You’, the delicate ‘I Know A Lady’) and ballads (‘When I Was Ready To Listen’, ‘Old Dan Cotton’). String orchestration on a couple songs. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
