New Chris Wilson CD

September seems to be rich with Groovies related releases..

Wilson new CD has just been released on the French indie label Rock Paradise
Chris and Anthony Clark have carried on their collaboration initiated with
life”. Here the impressive guest list will trigger the interest of any Groovies
fan: Robin Wills (Barracudas), Roy Loney, James Ferrell, George Alexander, Mike
Wilhelm, Larry Lea and Matthew Fisher (Procol Harum). Close to a Flamin’
reunion indeed. The production is immaculate and the songs come out really
clear. “Way too fast” starts the album as a perfect power pop song where Robin
Wills and Anthony Clark are duelling on guitars. Next number “Can’t let go”
reminds me of Moby Grape and George Alexander puts on a country rock touch
the harmonica. Mike Wilhelm does a terrific job on “Bad dreams”, the guy really
knows his guitar licks. The real gem must be “Gambling man”. From the start one
recognizes the mighty guitar sound of James Ferrell, waow !, Roy and Larry are
backing up Chris on vocals
on what sounds like a rockin’ lost song from the Teenage Head sessions, awesome
! Matthew Fisher Hammond organ intro on “Fading away” got me
immediate goosebumps at first hearing and he managed to match incredibly well
singing. There are many other great songs which I will leave to your curiosity.
Listening to the emotional lyrics of “bad dreams”, “Cold dark night”,
signals” or “Love over money”, one realizes that this album is all about that
in those crisis times, “love over money”, love wins over dough.

It is the
CD of the year for me. It is available on the Rock Paradise website

Enjoy !
