Blue Knight with James Gilchrist
A Very Special Compilation
Blue Knight's record begins with the pleasantly folksy "Always". It's a good showcase for James Gilchrist's voice and songwriting skills. "Three Rivers" is breezy and Gilchrist sweetly sings of finding a new love. The quietly strummed guitar is the only accompaniment. "Celebrating you" is upbeat and happy.
"La Belle Dame" is a scratchy live recording of a mythic song. Still, the beauty of Gilchrist's composition shines through so it's no great complaint. This is a very nice and pleasant record and the group seem gifted.
