All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Sons of Champlin were one of the last of the Bay Area psychedelic bands of the late '60s, and even if they had been one of the first, they likely wouldn't have been remembered as fondly as Jefferson Airplane or the Grateful Dead, simply because they weren't as memorable as their peers. Nevertheless, fans of San Franciscan psychedelia are passionate; they kept the group alive until 1977, and were also responsible for their late '90s reunion. The reunited Sons were initially a live outfit, so it made sense that their first album was Live. Recorded in January 1998, the album finds the group cheerfully running through their catalog.

While their material sounds a little dated, they perform with gusto, and that alone makes it a nice memento for dedicated fans -- and there really aren't any other kind.

    The Sons Rule!

    The audio samples sold me! I made my first internet purchase! I can't wait until it arrives 'cause I know it will be hot! Bill Champlin needs to be recognized as more than a member of Chicago. The Sons were right up there with Chicago (CTA) in the late 60's and early 70's. The leaders of Chicago must have realized this when they co-opted him in the 80's and 90's. Chicago became more commercially oriented as time passed. I know, because I've seen both groups live. I was able to meet the band members of the Sons in the early 70'. They were down to earth and they sent a message of love. They were true pioneers of progressive rock. This 1998 release is nothing short of a miracle. No corporate rock here! Check out The Sons of Champlin!

    A Very Special Band: Psychedelic R & B

    The patronizing lead to the reviews is, in my view, inaccurate. The Sons included musicians (Bill Champlin, Tim Cain, Terry Haggerty) who were the leaders of Marin County dance bands even before the folkies of Airplane, the Dead, Country Joe, Quicksilver, Moby Grape, et al. ever plugged their guitars into amplifiers (slavish imitators of Dylan that they were.) The Sons were originally a _dance_ band. Naturally, they took their inspiration for music making from other dance bands, which in those days meant R & B. By 1967, when their recordings began, they kept the taut bounce of a dance band but began to expand the lyrics to include the psychedelia of the time. The combination is completely unique, sort of like the Dalai Lama fronting for James Brown's Famous Flames. But you have to hear them to believe them, the lyrics are in many cases beautiful and timeless, all the while backed by hard pulsing Rhythm and Blues: Hammond B-3, saxophones, trombones, etc. and even vibes. A totally unique mixture. [The closest thing would be the first Chicago album, minus the over-emphasis on guitar, and minus the silly lyrics Chicago was famous for. Incidentally, Bill Champlin went on to work for Chicago from 1980 or thereabouts: the man is a very talented musician.] I never get tired of the Sons, because their music, aside from the philosophical sympathies, is artistically structured, well crafted, and cannily arranged by a group whose musical chops are outstanding all the way down the line. Frankly, the same cannot be said for any of their peers. They were the tightest band ever to come out of Northern California.
