"Chas Jankel" (SJPCD202)
...slick solo set for A&M in 1979...well nigh indispensible
Bryan, Belfast Telegraph
...what a treat...this album has a charm and groove which many modern artists should aspire to. Well worth checking out.
The upbeat numbers are the highlights of the album, containing catchy grooves infected with meticulous arrangements of keyboards, guitars, drums and horns; and while Jankel handles nearly every instrument as well as the vocals, he is joined by fellow musicians (including Mark Isham and Peter Van-Hooke) who make the recording all the more vivid. The longest of these jazzy, crazed cuts runs for nearly fifteen minutes without losing its grip.

If the album itself isn't enough to attract the Blockhead fans, how about the bonus 'Little Eva' which is a Jankel-Dury composition? Overall an interesting album.
