iTunes Review

Chuck Prophet sings with a rocker’s rasp that’s pure attitude and street smarts. The former Green On Red singer captures the raw feel of a man keeping copious notes on his surroundings and committing them to tape in the most honest fashion possible for 2009. Producer Greg Leisz hunkered down with Prophet in Mexico City and over eight days crafted the loose pieces into a cohesive whole. The band’s jagged feel adds a sense of immediate purpose to tunes such as the anthemic title track, the swooning, conversational blues of “You and Me Baby (Holding Out)” where Prophet sounds like the late Jim Carroll channeling the ancient blues singers of the Mississippi Delta or at least Randy Newman after a rough day. “American Man” motors with a sleek confidence. Drummer Ernest “Boom” Carter, who powered Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” keeps things in the pocket and moving forward, as the immigration tale of “Barely Exist” and the salute to a much- misunderstood boxer (“Sonny Liston’s Blues”) add to Prophet’s engrossing tales of people finding their uncomfortable place in the world.

Customer Reviews

Let Freedom Ring

Chuck is one of the best and brightest singers/songwriters around. All of his albums shine brightly, but I have to say that this one is his absolute best. I have all of them. This one is unbelievably good. Every song is better than the last one. Check out "Hot Talk", "American Man", Sonny Liston's Blues", hell, check em all out. Best album of the year in my estimation. More people need to hear Chuck.

And the hits just keep on comin'!!!!

CP has created another winner. Check out Sonny Liston's Blues, Where the Hell is Henry, Let Freedom Ring and Hot Talk.

He does it again

CP is a great songwriter. But, really, if you have not seen him live, you have not experienced the full brilliance of this guy (and his wife and the band). Great stuff. Also check out Stephanie Finch's new cd (Cry Tomorrow) produced by CP. More great music. Does it ever end? Pray not.

Chuck Prophet hit the road straight out of high school in the '80s with the psychedelic roots band Green on Red, and he never looked back. In addition to working as a singer/songwriter, guitarist, bandleader, and collaborator with artists as diverse as Cake, Kim Carnes, Solomon Burke, and Alejandro Escovedo, Prophet's deepening solo catalog of self-produced "sideways" roots rock has steadily become his calling card. Born in the Southern California suburb of Whittier, the San Francisco-based Prophet...
