Album Review

There's really no pigeonholing Marshall Chapman, a veteran roots rocker who has been kicking around since the '70s, producing strong work that is largely unheard outside of a devoted cult. Blaze of Glory, her 2013 album, captures everything that has made her so endearing to the devoted. Certainly, she can rock hard — the opening "Love in the Wind" is a dynamite piece of slinky, skeletal Bo Diddley beat, then she gets down and dirty on "I Don't Want Nobody" — but she's just as likely to slip into a Hoagy Carmichael cover, bring the perennial "Blues Stay Away from Me" to an old-fashioned honky tonk, ease along on a vague, warm haze on "Dreams & Memories," then turn truly eccentric on "Call the Lamas," which doesn't belong to any distinct style. Such eclecticism may have prevented her from attracting a mass audience, but it results in some truly compelling music, including this fine latter-day album.

Customer Reviews

Blazing good album

As Scotty Moore said in his blurb:

I have loved Marshall for years, but this is a real work of art.
The band is small, you can hear every note from every instrument,
(thanks Mr. Mixer) the voice is enough on top to hear every
emotion in the words but not overpowering. In addition to the
mechanics of the CD, which sounds much more like we did at
Sun Studio in 1955 than something from Nashville in 2013,
the songs are just as good as I expect from Ms. Chapman.
I especially like the Bo Diddley-type opener, but every song
sounds good. This is one to put on and listen all the way through,
not just put one or two cuts on your I-Pod.
SCOTTY MOORE

Very chill album

Good mix of tunes that DO NOT DISSAPPOINT. Definitely worth a listen!
