Himself/Love, A Feeling Of

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
Musically speaking, there are two Chad Mitchells. The first and most familiar is the one who sang in the Chad Mitchell Trio in the early- to mid-'60s. This Mitchell worked as a popular folk entertainer with political leanings, and turned out several memorable albums including At the Bitter End.

Musically speaking, there are two Chad Mitchells. The first and most familiar is the one who sang in the Chad Mitchell Trio in the early- to mid-'60s. This Mitchell worked as a popular folk entertainer with political leanings, and turned out several memorable albums including At the Bitter End. The second Mitchell debuted a couple years after exiting the trio 1966, and, while his folk leanings still occasionally surfaced, he cultivated an urban, refined vocal style more suitable to the classic American Songbook than folk. On A Feeling of Himself, Mitchell begins by covering Fred Neil's "The Other Side of This Life," giving the impression that he was on the cutting edge of the new singer/songwriter movement. Quickly, though, songs like "Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime" and "Broadway Is a Tame Street" dispel any such notion. While one wouldn't call Mitchell a crooner, his interest in singers like Jacques Brel and Charles Aznavour is clearly revealed. This adds a formal quality to his vocal style that -- as he states in the album's liner notes -- is clearly more expressive and extroverted than the "natural" folk style. The long and short of this shift in performance style and a reliance on bigger arrangements is that both Love and A Feeling of Himself are good albums, but more suited for fans of Bobby Darin than Chad Mitchell.
