Singletary, Marcus: Marcus Singletary

This self-titled EP seeks to portray Chicago blues guitarist Marcus Singletary as a diverse singer, songwriter and producer. That's why there's barely a blues lick among these seven feel-food songs with titles like "Love Is the Answer," "Shake the Ceiling" and "Start Something," although the Seventies-ready "One More Funk Song" comes close. Mixed by Don Casale (who engineered "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," by the way) on the same RCA Records console used to track several Elvis hits, the album boasts lots of backing vocals and proves Singletary can both sing and play. Cynics among us may regard Singletary's latest material his other albums were defined by lengthy blues solos as a step backward into pop territory. The rest will simply enjoy these 27 minutes of catchy, happy-sounding tunes that may brighten an otherwise cloudy day for someone who knows not to judge a CD by its cover.

Track Listing:
1) Start Something
2) Love Is the Answer
3) Greenstone Pala
4) Say, Can You See
5) Bound to Be
6) Shake the Ceiling
7) One More Funk Song
