SONS OF CHAMPLIN - FAT CITY


Before going in a much jazzier/ progressive direction with their Capitol Records debut in 1969 (Loosen Up Naturally), San Francisco's Sons Of Champlin (named after keyboard player Bill Champlin) cut one of THE GREATEST psychedelic soul singles.

Augmented by a full horn section and seriously strong musicians, The Sons waxed one seriously fiery single here, which was also their debut. This record got some airplay here in the bay area, but never took off nationally as it should have.

from 1967...

Thanks D. Had the pleasure of doing a show with Bill and family a few months ago. He's got a wonderful catalog of songs and still got that voice plus his son is quite the player to watch out for. Worth catching if you get the chance.
