Personal Review:
Another album by the very talented Danny Deardorff, this one, he is now accompanied by his wife!
The album opens with the track “The Castle“, and it’s a great track! Danny, like always delivers the song beautifully, the musicianship on it is pretty great too. Next up comes “Chinook” – which is another great song, I really like it. The next track is “Chicago Blue” which is an absolutely beautiful track, and one of my favorite tracks by Danny Deardorff. Then comes the track “Ma La Lady” (which I also own the 45 of) – which is just an amazing song all together, I really can’t complain here. It’s a nice romantic-y folk song, and I love it. The A-Side ends with the song “Love Song” which is a pretty good song with a steady chorus that is absolutely amazing!

The B-Side opens with the track “Earth” which has a pretty nice opening, and Danny’s lyrics are pretty good. I’m quite in love with this song. Then comes the song “Golden Road” which is kind of a funky, folk song. The lyrics are pretty good, and the musicianship is great. Danny delivers this song very well! “The Little Kings of Earth” come next, and it’s a slower song, but still pretty amazing. Then the chorus comes in, and Danny just delivers like only Danny can. The backing musicianship just makes it absolutely stunning, and an all together masterpiece! “I’ve Got a Friend” comes up next, which is a pretty nice song which Danny just makes into a magical experience for everyone! The album ends with “The Stars” – which Danny had wrote for his wife, Joyce, as the first line is “Oh the stars, Look at all the stars Joyce” it’s a beautiful ending track for another great Danny Deardorff album, really glad I own it.
