Prophet, Chuck

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Prophet, Chuck - Soap And Water Soap And Water
Pop New Release CTR004 Coppertree
Sealed 2007 180gm Vinyl With Embossed Jacket. "Chuck Prophet’s Genius Lies In Assimilating A Wide Variety Of Genres Into His Essentially Stonesy Architecture Ahead Of The Standard Curve. From The Seminal ’80s Alt-Country Shimmer Of Green On Red To His Incredibly Diverse Solo Sonic Quilt—Early Americana Rocker/Mid-Period Electronic Folkie/Latterday Style Hybridist—Prophet Has Engagingly Exemplified His Surname. On Soap And Water, His Yep Roc Debut, Prophet Continues To Defy Easy Categorization, Seamlessly Weaving Together His Myriad Roles: Chunky Rocker (“Freckle Song”), Sensitive Pop Balladeer (“Would You Love Me”), Sonic Dabbler (“Doubter Out Of Jesus (All Over You)”). For His Considerable Talents As Performer/Arranger/Stylist, The Ribbon That Neatly Ties The Package Is Prophet’s Lyrical Gift, As His Beat Story-Songs Pulse With Novelistic Detail, Noirish Humor And Poetic Ambiguity And Bristle With Pure, Guileless Rock Abandon. Originality Is Not Easy In The Derivative Rock World But Chuck Prophet Has Blazed Genre Trails For Over Two Decades With No Signs Of Running Out Of Inspiration Or Desire." - Brian Baker, Harp... more details
 
Prophet, Chuck - Let Freedom Ring Let Freedom Ring
Pop Audiophile - LP DIV 021LP Diverse
Sealed 2010 180gm HQ Original. “Chuck Prophet Takes On The Recent Financial Meltdown, Albeit In His Usual, Oblique Way. The Band Is A Stripped-Down Foursome With Prophet On Vocals And Guitar, Second Guitarist Tom Ayers, Bassist Rusty Miller, And Drummer Boom Carter, But They Bring A Surprisingly Diverse Palette Of Sound To These 11 Tunes. "What Can A Mother Do" Is A Shuffling Folk-Rock Tune That Scopes Out The Lives Of Two Losers Facing Diminished Expectations -- A Girl Who's "Unwanted In 17 States", And A Teenage Father With Three Kids Trying To Make Ends Meet While In The Service. "Barely Exist" Is Even Bleaker, A Dark, Bluesy Tone Poem That Reads Like A Postcard From Desolation Row Peopled With Folks Who Have Big Dreams But Drink Asbestos In Their Kool Aid. "Let Freedom Ring" Is A Country Rocker, A Dark Portrait Of The Modern American Nightmare That Contrasts The Struggle Of The Poor With The Heartless Parties Of The Haves. "American Man" Sounds Like A Distant Cousin Of The Stones "Street Fightin' Man"; An Anthemic Surrealistic Rant Full Of Clanging Guitars And Whooping Harmonies. But All Is Not Lost. Prophet Leavens His Cynicism With Several Shots Of Frantic Rock & Roll. "Good Time Crowd" Is A Jaunty Rocker Full Of Manic Energy, A Surf Tune That Rides A Giddy Tidal Wave Of Energy. "Hot Talk" Conflates Sex, Power, Capitalism, And The Sensationalist Media With Its Jaded Tongue Firmly In Cheek, While "Leave The Window Open" Is A Dreamy Ballad That Celebrates The Simple Pleasures Money Can't Buy. It Closes The Album On A Hopeful Note With Prophet Turning In An Achingly Soulful Vocal.” J. Poet, AMG.... more details
