Day 330

Earl Klugh- Living Inside Your Love

Here's another one of those albums I have and not sure why I do. When I pulled it out last night to put on the turntable, I was actually kind of surprised that it was next up. I was like, "Where the hell did this come from?"

I don't want to sound like I'm anti-Earl Klugh because I'm not. He's a perfectly fine guitar player and I'm sure if I was more into smooth jazz than I am (do like some of it), I would totally dig this record.

There were a couple of tunes that grabbed my attention, but overall I was bored with it. I was actually really digging his cover of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" until a few minutes into the song, female vocals came in. That completely ruined it for me. The first track, "Captain Caribe" had a nice Caribbean feel to it. (Obviously). But my favorite tune was "The April Fools" where it's just him on acoustic. I much preferred that over all the other songs with a full band. If the whole record was like that, I'd say this was a gem.

Does anyone know of any Earl Klugh records where its just him acoustically? I could be interested in picking some up if there are.
