ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Joe Chaplain Band (JCB) has certainly grown up and grown in a short time. Their series of live albums are a delightful chronicle of their journey, and the newest one "Sugar Harvest Mountain Moon" is the best one yet. Joe Chaplain's 5th Annual Tribute to the music of Neil Young, "Sugar Harvest Mountain Moon" serves up a full 5-course meal and then some.

From the opening notes of the solo acoustic guitar from 1964's "Sugar Mountain," you can feel the electricity and anticipation of the crowd. The 200-seat Andrews Hall in Sonoma, California, is a premier venue loved for its intimacy and warm acoustics. JCB takes advantage of the full house (sold out!) and hits one out of the park - you can feel the magic in the air.

The original JCB trio featured Joe Chaplain on lead vocals, guitars and harmonicas, veteran road drummer Chuck Walter (toured with Linda Ronstadt) and fellow Sonoma local Ron Leigh on bass, a strong trio foundation with great chemistry. The current linep adds California native guitarist Tom Judkins on Fender Telecaster, and fellow local Eric Cullen on keyboards. The icing on the cake for this live concert is two excellent Sonoma Valley female vocalists, Monica McKey and Sheila Whitney. They add the sweet depth and complexity of tight vocal harmonies that make these great Neil Young songs shine.

These charming voices first carry us through the hits "Old Man" and "Heart of Gold." Then we're off on a more obscure journey through the past of Neil Young's diamonds in the rough, from two of his lesser-known albums, 1974's "American Stars 'n' Bars" and 1992's poignant "Harvest Moon." Set two kicks off with the awesome "Unknown Legend" and slides right into love's labors lost and found with "From Hank to Hendrix" and the timeless ballad "Harvest Moon." Here we're being led down the garden path to the inner chamber of the prophetic dreamer Neil Young...

Sheila Whitney delivers a real barn burner taking the lead solo vocal on 1970's "After the Goldrush" with hearfelt accompaniment by Eric Cullen on grand piano. Then in the real surprise of the evening, Joe Chaplain sings the lead on 2011's "Peaceful Valley Boulevard" (from "Le Noise") with the full band backing. This is a fantastic arrangement of one of the most haunting new songs by Neil Young, and perhaps the only live recording of it to date. The crowd is cheering and enthralled.

The evening ends on a grateful note with two of Neil Young's best love songs: 1976's "Long May You Run" from the Still-Young album of the same name, and finally 1974's "One of These Days." Clearly this last selection is a personal thank-you to the community from Joe Chaplain and his hearfelt delivery is spot-on.

This is an album you'll play again and again. If you've got the blues just play it - it'll meet you where you are and lift you to the heights of human love. If you're feeling great, hey, it's over an hour of great songs for driving, celebrating and "dancin' in the night." Enjoy!
