Recensione album

On their sixth album, 1976's A Circle Filled with Love, the Sons of Champlin sounded ready for a commercial breakthrough on the order of the Average White Band, playing funky R&B, and they got halfway up the singles chart with "Hold On." But they didn't manage anything as successful as Boz Scaggs' Silk Degrees or Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music," to cite music in the same vein. Loving Is Why, their seventh album, boasts more commercial-sounding blue-eyed soul, such as the lead-off track and first single "Saved by the Grace of Your Love," but it also has a somewhat valedictory tone, notably heard in several ballads penned by lead singer Bill Champlin. "Time Will Bring You Love," "Love Can Take Me Now," and, especially, "Where I Belong" are set to acoustic guitar-plus-strings arrangements over which Champlin, usually a gruff-voice blues singer, croons introspectively.
