Chance Martin began his career as stage manager and lighting designer for his friend, the man in black himself Johnny Cash, and his first guitar was a present from the man himself. Hard to imagine a cooler start! Slightly scary and aggressive, this is the real deal from a man whose life story would no doubt make for quite a read. Vinyl LP comes with a download code.

6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 1st July 2015
This is a mixed bag in terms of quality but a worthy find nevertheless. It was released in 1981 and musically takes in quite a lot of what came before it. Opener "High Time" is rock 'n' roll in the vein of Blood, Sweat and Tears. It is followed by the siren-esque '70s folk of "Love By Chance". "Son of A Gunn" is a Zappa-esque funk-rock piece that occasionally drops into the Peter Gunn Theme. "Blue Monday" is silly and a bit like "Greased Lightnin" from "Grease". Elements of early '70s southern rock appear in "Don't Cry Wolf" whereas tracks like "Angel" don't sound much like anything else. I've had this since it was re-released 18 months ago and I'm still figuring out what to make of it.
