Album Notes
Hi, How are you? Welcome & Thank you for digging my music. My name is Chicago Vin Earnshaw. I come from "The Before Time". A time when the American Dream to some kids was to get an electric guitar and learn how to play. That was a long time ago. Six year's ago, when we started this project. I would never have dreamed that I would record another CD. That is the reason that I would like to express my heartfelt Thanks & Appreciation to Tom Goodrich, Arnie Larsen, Don Larsen, & Leo Dumas for Believing in me and making this all possible. One could not ask for better friends. Thank You Guys. That's why we call it a Coalition Special Thanks to the Guest Stars: Chris Stovall Brown, Mark Taber, Billie Lacaille, & Klem Klimmer, for their exceptional performances. The folks at Noll Guitars for their exceptional tech support during this project.

Blowfish in the Boston Groupie News

The Chicago Vin Coalition American Dream
Chicago Vin played bass in Fringe Religion. He also plays guitar and Vox organ on this CD. Vin comes out of the gate with some simple garage tunes that make their hit. Some of the rest of the CD goes into some blues territory. It all has an edge in the recording that I thought was lost decades ago. It's got the rawness of a demo but with a clear mix. It seems so simple and uncomplicated, but if it is why isn’t anyone else doing it this way? The first three songs are garage tunes that remind me of the work of Rick Coraccio and the Last Ones. It will remind you of lots of sixties faves. It has the Vox Continental at the front with cutting guitar leads through it. A lot of smart, hip and trendy people are trying to do this but Vin seems to accomplish it effortlessly. He also handles the blues via rock material with authority. Blues material was an influence in the sixties and many bands put blues songs in their repertoire. He’s got a gruff voice that has a world weary aspect that works wonders. He gets the max from his recording buds.
If I didn’t review CD’s I might not have given this the time which is sad. It’s an unexpected gem.

AJ Wachtel in the Noise Boston

The Chicago Vin Coalition American Dream 9 Tracks
The music on this cool release is pop rock and retro rock influenced with screaming guitars and gruff vocals. Vin Earnshaw plays guitars, bass and sings and Leo Dumas is behind the kit. The tune titles sound autobiographical: “American Dream,” “Hey Little Girl,” “Walk Away,” “No Use Fighting,” “Blonde Infatuation,” “Yesterday’s Gone,” and my three favorites: “Silence Is Golden” with it’s good groove and catchy “oh- oh- oh” chorus, “Ride Past Midnight” with ace blues musician Chris Stovall Brown blowing harp on this tight bar room r&b shuffle, and “Lifeline” a real rocker sorta like T. Rex meets Tom Waits. All the songs are political and social commentaries and are written by Earnshaw. I dig it and you will too. (A.J.Wachtel)
