Album Notes
This is a new single from Chad Mitchell, leader of the legendary folk group "The Chad Mitchell Trio". The song also features Chad's daughter, Anne-Claire Mitchell, who did an amazing job singing backup. Talent definitely runs in this family!

Chad's original group was formed in the late 1950's with three members of the Gonzaga Glee club in Spokane, Washington and capitalized on the emerging folk music genre. Their music was sometimes political, sometimes satirical - but always popular. They signed with Mercury Records in 1963 and the group continued to have huge success appearing on national TV shows like The Bell Telephone Hour and The Ed Sullivan Show. When Chad went solo for the first time, John Denver stepped in to take his place but the group soon disbanded. The group reunited in the 1980's and did several concerts that were broadcast on PBS that included the original members plus John Denver. One of their original guitarists, Roger McGuinn went on to form "The Byrds".

Chad first recorded with Mission Control on the 2001 KREM-TV Christmas special that featured he and Randy Shaw doing a duet of "Little Drummer Boy". The two also appeared on the 2013 release called "In Your Honor" that raised money for the Honor Flight charity and achieved top 10 status on the Amazon Music charts.

If you're a Chad Mitchell fan, this new song is a MUST have. If you haven't heard Chad Mitchell before, now is the time. This song showcases his amazing voice and lyrical talent.

Fabulous Chad Mitchell does it Again but Even Better cause Daughter Anne Claire
A great ballad with satire, sadness and humor all rolled together. "The ship of state has sprung a leak and she is sinking slowly down! " This is Chad Mitchell at his best. In fact, he just keeps getting better and better and better. Age does him well. His background voice is his daughter Anne Claire who balances the satire with a whimsical tone that is at once a support and a challenge to Chad's brash satire. This is a fun download and also thought provoking. Bravo Mitchells! You did it again!!
